hello, just a wee update for you, I did make it to the shore today, and goodness me I so enjoyed it, the fresh air, the sea, at one with mother nature. I walked (staggered) a fair distance, and only when I got there did I remember I had to retrace my steps and go back! I am positive my poor wee legs are 2" shorter than when I left! The return walk had many stops to get my breath back, but strangely as I was returning I was coughing up a fair amount of yuck, and I wondered if the sea air in my lungs did this?? also I did mean to say when I commented yesterday about constant tiredness, I also feel quite weak at times, is that a side effect of this illness I wonder? I do hope everybody had a pleasant painfree day, bless.
