Hi Ladies. For several days I have had more energy than the past 6 months. It's not great, but it sure is significant. Also more food is appealing to me.
I'm answering Lynnwood's and Melissa's suggestions. As for what Hubby prepares they are "unusual" Mexican dishes he developed and even without spices I couldn't choke most down. Protein drinks, yuck. Raw veggies get thrown out. A few frozen meals are in the freezer and don't appeal either. Sliced ham: For ten years the only meat I ate was fish. Then I added bird and since Lupus I've added some cow. You can tell by my writing that it's an animal thing. I haven't eaten pig in 25 years. One more barrier is that I must limit gluten. Too much and diarrhea visits. This is sad, but I'm so addicted to yogurt that I take Lactase every time I eat it. Too much dairy, diarrhea. BUT a tuna sandwich on my GF bread sounds good! Yea!
Now for exercise: Rheumy won't let me walk because my right knee is ruined, R hip bursitis, osteoarthritis completely down my spine (it's hurting very badly as I'm writing this. After I quit running for 20 years I continued to stretch and when I touch my toes I can still place my hands flat on the floor. I did yesterday
During the past six months I rarely drove because I get cobwebs in my brain and confused. So that plus no energy = no arthritis swim class. Melissa Ahha! 15 minutes of chair yoga sounds good and I am going to look at YouTube! I really appreciate the effort and time both of you took to help me and even a couple of great ideas are great for me! Love Ya, Butterflake
