accepting what i can....
i just read another post about someone that is practically bed bound...and i reminded myself to soak in absolutely everything i was able to do today. i made breakfast and cleaned it up. i through in laundry - okay its all clean but in a big clean pile...but its clean! went to meet my mom and aunt for a few minutes while they finished shopping. stood in line at the post office - got a crazy panic attack when they locked the door on us b/c it was noon - so i bolted - well she had to un bolt so i could bolt - so packages not sent but almost. i hung out with my dad and we watched cheaper by the dozen 2 while i waited for my mom to get home. we picked out tile for the new condo - mom picked it out did a great job. while at mom's i started feeling it...like a slow moving wave that is coming for you...i couldn't eat my lunch too nauseous - then had to run to the bathroom. okay - still doing pretty good - headed home and then to the park - sophie and i did a small loop - sat on benches twice to get around - met two adorable Bernese Mountain Dogs - Jack i think and Maui which sounded like Molly. Then at 5 pm I got home and the wave hit...unable to eat much without getting sick - Marc made me an awesome steak and i could tolerate that will some lettuce....sat in bed since 7pm feeling weak and tired and mad as hell - because i wanted so badly to have a normal day...and then i read that post - and it reminded me of how lucky i was today - and hopefully tomorrow and many more days ahead....so for any of you out there that are bed bound - it can get better - and i wish i could figure out the miracle pill to pop and i would do everything in my power to send it to all of you...I do believe strongly in the under utilization of my UV Photophoresis Blood treatments - and once i am a bit stronger much of my energy will be devoted to working with my doctor on a clinical trial for that purpose of getting more people to use this treatment that has so few side effects - and is working - but i must focus on myself and i must get well - isn't that a political trick if you say a lie long enough it becomes the truth - well i don't know if its a lie - but i am saying over and over again that i will beat this i will beat this i will beat this - and if this is as good as it gets i will be grateful forever more that it isn't worse and learn to live fully within its constraints. peace.
