Yes, I’ve been trying very hard to stick to the exercise routine the PT set out for me, and I’ve done it in the mornings almost every day. But I’ve been nowhere near as good at getting the afternoon set done. I don’t quite know how to describe the weak feeling I get some days. Sometimes I wake up feeling that way, and on other days it progresses as the day goes on. Whatever is causing it leaves me just limp as a rag.
I’ve been wondering if maybe the stomach ulcers are acting up again, as I always feel hungry when I’m weak like that, even though I may have just finished a meal. The only other thing I can think of, other than the probable Primidone side effects, is that I’m having some kind of heart trouble. I do know even the least amount of exertion leaves me breathing hard. Well, to be completely honest with myself, it’s likely because I’m about 50 pounds over weight. Somewhere in the mix of all those possibilities is the answer.
I’ve gone back to eating something with each medicine dose, which should help with the ulcer and hunger possibilities, but I am trying to eat fruit, instead of bagels. I had thought a bite or two of a bagel would protect my stomach from the meds, but by the end of the day I’m adding over 300 calories in just one bagel. So we’ll see how half an apple does for awhile. It should help with the constipation, anyway, as apples are high in fiber.
I’m in good shape keeping up with the new requests for help on our Lost Toys Search Service, but I’m way behind on getting lovey duplicates we have already listed put in the correct storage box. I can hardly move in one bedroom, thanks to all the plush toys in there.
I still have bouts of really bad brain fog at night when I get really tired. I start each day with so much hope, but seem to end many days exhausted, even though I have done little physically.
We do get wonderful reunion stories from people we have helped, and that always lifts my spirits. And Spring is here in full force now in Alabama, even though we had a significant snow fall just a few weeks ago. Hopefully the pretty weather will help to get me more energized.
