Some of you may remember my post a few months ago when I was diagnosed with leukemia. I started the oral medication. So far, my white count has gone down and the size of my legs has gone up, as well as my weight! I gained 10lbs last week, I'm sure 100% water. It's so discouraging. I'm like, "well, I'm going to gain weight anyway, so I may as well eat my favorite junk." Real smart, huh?
I'm already on a diaretic-my mom calls them pee pills. I'm trying to drink more water than the minimal 64 oz.I'll be extra careful about salt. I spent most of yesterday in bed to get my legs to go down, but as soon as I get up, they balloon again. My face is puffy, too. gawd! I feel like a water balloon. I feel like I sloosh instead of walk. It's a side effect of the cancer treatment.
One more reason why, for me, reality is overrated. Thanks for listening to me *****.
