Another pleasant young chap. We discussed our Raynauds! He runs his hands under hot water before greeting each patient to ensure his handshake doesn't make them squeal.
I continue to tick the boxes on managing chronic pain, so we have drawn up a six month, long-term aim. He asked me what I'd love to do in 6 months that I can't do know. Walz and salsa ( no laughing at the back) was my reply. So, *sigh* how to gain weight is part of that. Again. My healthy, fit and happy weight is 35lbs more, though I'd settle for less. We agreed that a bit of insulation would help with how seriously cold I feel, too. He whispered about whales and blubber surviving the cold so well until I reminded him we were both skinny and no one could overhear.
So, I'm researching ways to get some weight on healthily and, by that, increase my energy levels. There really isn't much, apart from advice on how body builders can muscle up, but I shall continue to investigate. "Eating More" is obvious, but with a narrow misbehaving oesophagus and slow motility that doesn't work, never mind having those problems for three years really putting me off certain foods for periods of time.
However, I do very much appreciate this service. I've heard a lot of negatives from friends about their experiences, but it's fine for me.
