It is 3.5 years since I was hospitalised for vasculitis WG. I Ifinished all medication 9 months ago, apart from calcium as I have osteopenia. Apart from the usual reactions to the medication and overwhelming fatigue at times, I have felt as though everything was a great effort, as though I couldn't be bothered to do anything thoroughly and only tackling the essential jobs such as shopping and cooking. Was I just lazy, I often asked myself,or was it the illness?
I am writig this blog because I feel so much better-- I am being quite imaginative again in my food preparation, I am initiating activities. My mind is clearer-- I am more me! Though I have become more selfish, I think ,as I realize that I have the responsibility for my own health. Not a bad thing! The only thing is, I cannot walk as far as I did when on steroids, but otherwise-----!
I know many people have a much worse experience than I have had-- but I feel that this blog may give some people hope. I know I am at this point today and anything may happen in the future-- but I am enjoying today! So take heart if you are still on the journey!
