Getting back into gear
Tuesday, November 10, 2015
My year has been plagued with sickness, infections after surgery, now a social security review at the height of the holiday season just getting under way, so Doctor appts to get records & such. Doc says "I'm not concerned that u gained weight, just glad you're still alive". Made me feel less confident about how well I fought infections... Evidently I'm still fighting them & have bone marrow edema too. But I've lost 10 pounds in the past 3 weeks. Not exercising heavily yet per doc orders, just cutting out my less healthy snacks & eating more salads during the week. It's a relief to be able to step on the scale and not run crying to my room & then treat everyone else like crap because I FEEL like crap. I have to work on that.
But I'm a work in progress. I'm still alive but no longer kicking (hurts too badly, y'all!). I'm moving slower but standing up straighter than I have in years. And I have bought & am wearing dresses! When I CAN shave my legs, I even wear short ones!! I've bought heels but not ready for those yet. Just looking forward to a brighter future in 2016!!
Peace & Love, Ang🌺🌺☠
