Appreciating Little Things

I went for a walk to the local shopping centre today.

OK, it's only about a 10 to 15 minute walk each way. For most people that's no big deal. For me? Well, I haven't been able to walk that far since my steroids were reduced back in February.

It appears the sulfasalazine I've recently started taking, is making a difference.  I walked to the shops, and back again, without needing to stop there for a rest.

I managed to even have my rest time without actually having a nap today as well.

Things are definitely looking up. I know from experience I can have a great day like this and then have things fall apart, but one good day is worth it, and hopefully it's a sign of things to come!

While still talking about exercise, I've been missing hydrotherapy a lot lately.  It's winter here in Australia.  A nice warm pool is fine on a freezing winter day - but getting out and walking to the shower, that's not so nice.  While I'm still feeling well, it's time to toughen up a bit and face  the freezies! I missed today's session (I was going for a walk.) But Friday, I'll definitely go, maybe.

On another matter, I got back my letter from Breastscreen Queensland. It said something along the lines of: with regard to your recent torture session, we have found that you have no signs of breast cancer at this time.  Please come back in two years so we can squash your most sensitive bits again, just in case.
