You’ve probably wondered why I’ve gone on a blogging rampage. Well it’s mostly because I’ve been hanging out in the house all day – I’ve been told that I shouldn’t go anywhere and that I should rest up.
Now, I’ve got more cabin fever than I think I’ve had in a while, and it’s mostly because I’ve been coughing and sneezing for the past 4 days. I attribute it to allergies, but I think it has to do with a little depression too.
I had a doctor’s appointment last week. This is not any different from the other doctor’s appointments I’ve had in the past 2.5 years. I’m still on the schedule of having to go see the doctor once every two months. The good news? Load still undetectable, the brain is fine (no seizures), gaining weight and muscle each time, and bigger than I’ve ever been. The bad?
My counts are still low – in the 20s. So low, in fact, any doctor looking at them would be shocked that I’m still surviving. What went wrong? Well, nothing. The prescriptions obviously work – I haven’t had a cold in about a year, withstood a workout regimen with a trainer that kicks ass (DJ Swole is still in full effect thankyouverymuch), travelled, jumped out a plane and worked serious overtime. This coughing and wheezing episode I’m going through is nothing but a fluke. I’m convinced of it.
The proposed plan of action? To simply try some new prescriptions (as if these prescriptions weren’t enough, right?) One prescription in particular simply raises numbers. However, in raising numbers, I have to take a shot- and be ready for enduring nauseous side-effects for an entire week- every 3 months. Obviously this is strictly a numbers game – a game I don’t feel like playing.
Most people I’ve talked to have echoed my same thoughts – that I’m still alive, and I ain’t goin’ nowhere. I believe that’s true. The only problem is, as they say, numbers don’t lie. Or do they?
* For those who’ve followed me, then you know what I’m talking about – I’ve been less than forthcoming with it, I’m sure. Attribute this to the ‘don’t ask, don’t tell’ mantra. If this doesnt make any sense to you, feel free to email/IM me. I’ll clear it right up.
