Buh-bye! You know, be a duck and shake it off. I know nothing will change much out there in Covid-land anytime soon. And though I get tired of all the whining and jokes about 2020, I just have to say… it’s well deserved. But there’s some light at the end of MY tunnel at least.
I had two strokes this year, in January and February. I was in the hospital for the second one when the Covid outbreak began at the end of February. I watched it on the news and what was happening here in my very own Washington, and also in China. Who knew it would ever get this bad? I have to admit, I’m not too surprised though, our yearly flus and exceptionally bad outbreaks (like SARS) have been practice for this really big one. And it’s a strong virulent one that keeps adapting. Its only job is to survive. You learn a lot from virus-apocalypse-horror movies of which I’m an avid fan. One might chuckle here, but sadly (or frighteningly) fantasy has come to reality… again. Mother natures culling. And I don’t believe we’re near to being off the hook.
I digress… ahem, I was saying, I had two strokes at the beginning of the year that completely zapped my life for a good 10 months making my body go completely haywire. I think I’ve pretty much slayed that dragon with the exception of heightened Neuropathy. It’s a hold out but I think it’s going to get better- just needs more time.
The Christmas extravaganza brought a relapse into gluten. I enjoyed it immensely. Then cursed it as I was back on my cane again and hardly able to walk without it. I’m eating clean for 4 days again now and this is the first morning my cane has kept its station next to the bed. I may need it tonight (which is my worst time) but for now I think I’m good and the inflammation is coming back down.
Summary: I will soon be able to enjoy the activities of daily living. I have Rituxan infusions set up in January that should finish off the inflammation for me. This difficult and hard year has a chance to morph into something a little better. And if it doesn’t? I can do the morphing for myself. I have a resilient brain that way… I’ve proved it dozens of times.
My New Years Intention: To slay 2020 and make it SO MUCH BETTER!!!
