Hope Wins Out

I am basically a hopeful person. After last week’s flare-up and ensuing incapacity, I am slowly getting back my inner resolve to do all I can to overcome the debilitating effect of this disease.

The physical therapist is coming today for my first homebound session. Because my experiment with walking every day did not pan out, I am hoping a professional will help me to get a more realistic plan of action.

I am also getting back to eating healthier and staying away from bread products. I’ve resumed keeping a food journal to keep track of which foods my body doesn’t like. I recommend this because you can’t  keep track in your head of everything you eat. I found out yesterday after eating a Wendy’s cheeseburger that two hours later I couldn’t move either of my legs. It’s been a long time since I’ve eaten fast food, especially a big bun like that, that I’m betting it was this that caused the problem. The sandwich tasted so good but I paid a price.

I’m also eating more protein and am looking into the powdered protein you add to food. Anyone with suggestions of foods that will combat fatigue? I know eggs, chicken, and fish are good. Doing something is better than doing nothing.

Hope will win out.
