Iron

I’ve suffered with low iron for many years now but post op I’ve struggled to maintain a good level so I’ve found a new supplement to try

Does taste to bad & quick to dissolve in water.

H20

Xmas day I was sat in the shade and enjoying the cool breeze and company. As the day went by so did the wind burn to my back. Didn’t feel to bad at the time but oh boy the next couple of days after where pretty bad. But keeping hydrated that was an issue as I didn’t feel like drinking, to which the sting of the burn took longer to come out than I had hoped.

This bottle has 2litre capacity to which I need to make my best friend – less coffee, tea or soft drinks and more H20

Struggle street

Have you ever been in a situation where mentally your have so much planned that you want to achieve but physically at a standstill with not knowing what’s going to happen if you take the plunge.

This last couple of months I’ve been struggling with my Depression but it’s friend Anxiety has been kicking in and sticking around. I have seen my GP who is fantastic and medications have been changed.

Constant daily battle of heavy chest and fear of the unknown or even if I can survive a day without fear is taking its toll.

Today is New Years Day & I wanted to start the year on a positive note, eat good, exercise more and be more active – didn’t last 2 hours apart from cooking a decent well balanced meal; mixed vegetables & curry with rice

I wish I knew how to get myself out of this grove. I don’t want to rely on medications and hate the feeling of possibly increasing the medications even more but a follow up with GP is on the cards.

With regards to my daily struggles and wanting to achieve – I will need to start with baby steps and aim to achieve 1 things daily.

Watching a friend fighting Cancer & dealing with the emotions

😢 today I visited a dear family friend whom I hadnt seen for over 5 weeks as a result of having a nasty cold and not wanting to pass the germs onto them. 

Walking through the front door and into the lounge room to see my friend was a shock as I didnt know what to expect knowing treatment had begun. 

10kg lost in 4 weeks, chemotherapy cycles happening, hair gone – OMG brave face was required quickly but shocked and holding the tears in on the inside were hard.

Friend is holding up quite well, appears to be in good spirits but looking deep into his eyes the pain was clear as day. 

Processing the knowledge our dear friend has cancer and having been around someone when I was younger with similar type of Cancer has bought up all those old memories. 

My heart is breaking, mixed emotions are rolling through & Im confused.
