The husband was teasing me when I was telling him about the change in diet that I am drastically going through. He knows how hard it is for me since I am really a big chips and chocolate fan but really when you are face with edema everyday you would really think twice about what you eat. The truth is that incident scared me and made me think hard. Either I make a 360 turn towards my diet or be a step closer to death. My choice..of course..monitoring what I eat. If you know me, you know I am having a hard time. I am no veggie and fruit eater. But last week, mine was loaded with it. And yes, I have successfully avoided coke. It was not hard. Because I only have to think of my future and my appetite for coke will be gone. haha. But I am craving for refreshing fruits and veggies every single minute. And that’s a good thing I know. I just need to make sure I have enough stock at home.
I have been suffering from LUPUS for nine years already. Despite what I have been through I still think I am lucky because it was detected at an earlier stage, GOD gave me the chance to be married to the wonderful man who have never left my side since day one and an adorable little girl who never miss a chance to brighten up my day, and of course a doctor who I can relay on. At this point, I am in the biggest complication that LUPUS can bring me. My left kidney is now affected and my blood pressure don’t want to go down. Yet, I am still positive that I can surpass this. In fact, I wanted to give myself a gift. I know that every year, there is a thing that corresponds to it. For the Ninth anniversary gifts are pottery or china. Hmmm…I think it’s high time I go buy a pot with a plant of course. Source of oxygen. Actually I wanted bonsai inside of the house for so long now. But I can’t find time to drop by the nearby garden where bonsai are being sold. But the ultimate gift I am going to give myself is my devotion to live a healthier life. I would really make sure I loss weight this time because according to what I read it can help me maintain healthier kidneys.
