July 12th

I used to feel really bad about not posting often. I've come to realize that not posting can actually be a good thing. I haven't had any material changes in my symptoms in a long time now. I don't know if it is because of the meds I'm on or not, but things certainly are consistent.

I still have balance issues and I fatigue terribly easy. My left leg is still my primary culprit although my right one has its own brand of fatigue. The summer heat is playing havoc with my fatigue and how fast it overcomes me as usual.

I have been doing a new workout that focuses on on extremely heavy weights for short intervals. It is helping me with my strength and I am putting on weight, which is nice because it will change my lean/fat ratio over time. My hope is to put on the weight I lost (about 20 lbs.) as muscle and then use that additional 'good' weight to help burn the remaining fat off. I think it will take a year or so to get where I want to go, but it looks promising right now.
