Has anyone thought about the weight they are carrying around with them in their day to day life? I don't mean body weight, we can't help that what with lack of excersise and steroids, but since I have been on oxygen and using a helios tank when I go out I have been conscious of it's weight. Then taking a raincoat from the wardrobe (will we never be able to go out without) I realised it was heavier than the one I had been wearing so it went back. Now I weigh it all in my hands and decide what I will be doing and what is the lightest to wear for what, may sound silly but I think it works. Also when I shower I use a towelling wrap after, then I do not have the effort of drying my torso and arms, the wrap absorbs it so there are only my legs left!
