Trying Again To Post A Blog
Monday, August 25, 2014
After losing my blog still again, I thought I would give it another try. Saturday's fund raiser was a success. We raised over one hundred dollars for the little toddler, who has leukemia. It was hot, tiring, sweaty work but we were more than willing to make the effort.
As for me, I am still under the weather. I went to get my allergy shot this morning and couldn't get it due to my cough, laryngitis and asthma problems. The ENT will look down my throat tomorrow morning and see if he can figure out what the issue is. I took my last steroid this morning and have 4 more days left on my latest antibiotic. The debilitating fatigue is the worst. I have been like this since July 29th so it is getting real old, real fast. The isolation and feeling of helplessness can be overwhelming.
The good news is that my weight, although fluctuating with the steroid, has generally held it's own. I miss my workouts but frankly, activity exhausts me. I have tried to keep my activity in filtered air conditioning. I have managed sporadic bouts of closet organizing and some cleaning. When I walk, it is at a disgustingly slow pace in an air conditioned environment.
Thanks for letting me vent my frustration! Hopefully, my ENT and primary care doctor will have some answers for me by Wednesday. Fingers crossed!
