All change for the better?

All change for the better?

Changing medication is a big deal.  I don’t deal with it well and the last couple weeks have had me pumped with high doses of steroids and antirejection medication.
It plays havoc with your sleep, feelings, thoughts, movements…
Being in isolation too doesn’t lend itself to healthy well being and so I have had to employ some strategies to keep sane.
One of which is communicating: facebook status updates, blogging, texting, forums
Using the time as an opportunity to complete outstanding projects and set mini goals to keep focused.
Eating unhealthily is one of the things I struggle with when away from home.  My diet is quite concise and healthy.  I am diligent and conscientious, always have been with diet and exercise.  Suddenly, my body has been halted and much of the good efforts I make have been stripped down.  Its difficult to feel well when this happens.
Using photography to express my interests, thoughts and feelings is helpful, especially as I have recently discovered the wonderful apps available at my fingertips (I await the bill mind) to keep me occupied and ‘have a go’ at things I usually would not have time for.
The great thing is that I have been so well looked after and I feel a million times better than I have ever this year.  Its hard work and there’s a way to go. 
My medication book needs a total overhaul as I have acquired yet even more drugs and odd timetabling.  But a change for the better is always a good thing.
