Welcome, Welcome, Welcome!
I have had RAD for some years now, but was just diagnosed correctly a few months ago. I am a Pediatric RN and have never ha a phobia except to flying Roaches! Lol. Needles don't scare me. If you are needing some tips on what your infusion nurse may do to make your experience better just message me. I have some tricks under my sleeve, so to speak.
In terms of weight, I have been a constant 180 for several weeks now. It's frustrating, but I refuse to give up! I will be seeing a nutritionist in two to three weeks depending on the hospital scheduler. My appointment with the nutritionist last Friday was a mix up! Ugh!! Several of my docs have said it is my medicine (not the RAD meds) that are slowing my metabolism down and I need some adjustment in my diet and extra exercise. My biggest challenge is that the RAD tends to make me need extra sleep. I have a hard time getting up in the morning and should walk instead. I make no excuse, I really need to walk and am having a hard time with motivating myself. I hope I can find a partner to walk with. it would make it so much easier, but if not, I'm going to try this week to walk as soon as I get up in the morning, even if it's a few minutes.
What a beautiful day it is today.Again welcome. This forum is a godsend! I love it and love SparkPeople for all that it has provide me with.
I hope you all have a wonderful Father's Day!
Never, never give up!
