Things are going along. My husband Rob is still doing well with his shoulder surgery recovery, but was told today that he was using it too much and to ease up. He's been more careful today....
He is able to drive some again, but very limited so I am still the driver. I'm more tired than I'd been and am resting more to compensate. So far the crushing fatigue is holding at bay and I just have the pain.
My eating plan has stopped working. I have started gaining weight at a fairly quick rate. So, I have adjusted my eating plan. I have added back meat and a little dairy. I have cut out grain based carbs and am eating lots of veggies and fruit. No sugar & no salt added. I've been doing it for just a few days and I actually feel a little stronger. I was getting all my protein from beans and soy based substitutes. I'd been eating that way for almost 3 years. It had been working fine for me. I have no idea what happened. Any ideas?
Our little dog has some sort of skin infection and needs a bath three times a week. That is hard for me, but so far I am managing. He was so sick. The vet was very concerned about him. He's on antibiotics and steroids too. He's a little shi tzu and I love him dearly. We also have a big dog (almost 100 lbs) who is a sweet heart too. They provide us with a lot of joy and companionship.
So in spite of how I might feel, life continues. The good and bad times come and go. My symptoms ebb and flow along with all of it. And it's good to be part of life, even from the side lines. Some days the phone or Internet is my sole companion. Rob's other illnesses sometimes cause him to withdraw and sleep a lot.
Thanks for being a part of my life.
