New Post

I really don't like it when people stop updating their blogs very often, and I know that since November the most times I've posted in a given month is five.  So, my summer resolution will be to improve that number!

Unfortunately, my life is pretty boring and I don't have that much to write about!  Unless you enjoy hearing about my twice weekly physical therapy appointments.  I'm doing these 80s style exercises with steps up and down, and they're quite challenging.  Keep in mind, I can't get out of low chairs by myself right now and need a hand going upstairs too, so it's not like they're working me that hard, but I'm usually pretty tired afterwards.  I've gotten so lazy that even though I know I need to do this stuff, I really don't want to!  Can't I just magically be normally strong again?

On the plus side, no matter how much I eat I am not gaining any weight!  I'm eating tons of sweets, my mom keeps baking for me, and it's summer so there's ice cream, which we all know is my favorite, and my weight is stable and the lowest I ever remember it being.  I'm not underweight, although I could stand to gain a few pounds of muscle and strength, but hey, no complaints here at the ability to eat whatever I want and not gain any weight!  I probably just jinxed myself and will gain 20 pounds in the next month, but for now everything is good.

Sorry, that was a super annoying paragraph.  Will you forgive me for being annoying if I tell you that the steroids I have to take right now to keep the GVHD under control affect the way insulin processes sugars so I have to take my glucose and give myself insulin shots?  Here's my secret though: I usually forget to take my glucose.  But when I remember, the glucose level is okay and I don't have to take any insulin.  Maybe my horrible specialist in France wasn't so wrong when he said I was a non-compliant patient.  Ha!  He wishes he were right about something!

Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend! 

P.S. This was all meant to be somewhat amusing, so don't take it too seriously.  But if I screwed up and it wasn't funny at all, do let me know, and I'll work on my style :)

Jennie - great idea! We're taking a trip to Traverse City in a few weeks so I'll be sure to post pictures from that.

GYSC - wow, a real fan!

I don't like when blogs I like don't update but the opposite is also annoying: I hate when bloggers suddenly feel the need to post 20 articles per day, there is no way I can keep up!

Mais bon, il y a un juste milieu.

How about photo posts? Michigan should be nice in the summer :-D

I have a hard time finding things to write about too, and noticed I only post 7-10 times a month now... not much more than you! And I'm thinking all kinds of good thoughts for you to get stronger quickly! :)

Have you tried protein shakes or anything like that? I don't know if they even taste any good, but I know they help when people are trying to gain weight and muscle.

GYSC - thanks!

Zhu - yeah, the constant updaters are also annoying, I had forgotten about those because I just had to stop reading them! I'm an absolutely terrible photographer, but I'll try to take a few pictures and see how they work out :)

Monique - you post twice as much as I do! And your posts are actually interesting! I love your series on doing something new every week. For the protein shakes, that's a good suggestion, I'll have to look into that.
