I'm Here, Kinda Sorta

Saturday, January 25, 2020

Hi y'all, I'm back. It's been a really rough couple of months. And it kinda got me down. I didn't want to talk to anyone or see anyone. I have been workin' on some diamond art, which has really helped me. It kept my mind off of some of the things happenin' in my life.

First, it was a COPD flare for Thanksgivin' then I got RSV for Christmas and New Year. I didn't even really watch too much football. That is when Jessie new somethin' was wrong. I finally got to talk to my therapist and I got back on the right track. I started to work on my diamond art and help Wade with his. That helped a lot. But I still didn't talk on SP. I didn't do anythang on here at all.

I have gained about 10lbs back from havin' to take steroids IV and then when I got out of the hospital pill form. I had 3 different times from Thanksgivin' till just a week ago that I took my last dose. They make me so hungry and I eat anythang I can find. I suppose that might be part of the reason I haven't been here. Puttin' that 0 on if ya lost any weight that week was gettin' to me. So, I just stop comin' and loggin' in. But I know now that I'm gonna be fightin' this all my life. Lupus, Sjogren's, COPD, Fibro Flares are gonna happen and I'm gonna have to deal with them as they come. I just want to be sick like I was b4. The doctor wanted to put me in a nursin' home and Jessie wouldn't let'em. I don't want to go back to one again.

So, I'm gonna try to come back every day as I did b4 and do what I have to do. If I can I'll lose the weight. I can't go to Y yet. I'm havin' to use my O2 all the time for now. But I do have a recumbent bike and I've been doin' about 1 mile every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. I take the weekends off. I'm gettin' faster on it. So, I might put the thangy up to 2 instead of 1. LOL The past couple of days I have had my O2 off while I'm sittin' workin' on the diamond art, crochetin', or on the computer. So that's a great start to bein' off of it. I will get to where I was b4 the flare b4 spring. That's my goal.

I'm gonna close now. Y'all have a great evenin' and a great rest of the weekend!

    You can do this! Your first job is to survive, the weight loss doesn't matter if you can't do that! Like my doc says, "we're alive to gripe about it!". I'm like you, bad year, but it's behind me. I have to just get back in the saddle and move on from here.
