Iv'e had bronchitis for the past couple of weeks, which has put everything into chaos. Not only do I have the side effects of the bug, but it really effects my nerves on my spinal cord, thus sending my NMOSD disease into chaos.
Some examples of that are that my legs just go totally straight out and very stiff. It was almost impossible to bend my left leg.
I haven't been eating much, bit have been craving Chinese yum cha steamed dumplings! I never eat them!!!! I've still eaten the same BREAKFAST every day, lunch I was ordering as I had no energy to make anything, and my taste buds were all over the place, so I had no craving for any of the food I normally eat. Dumplings and sweet and sour soup with vegetables was all I craved.
Dinner was just pasta or steamed veggies and an apple.
Of course loads of water, if I could. I had no taste for water initially when I got sick. Now I'm craving Coke Zero (I never drink soft drinks??), and am back onto 2.5 - 3 litres of water.
I've been in a wheelchair since January 2010 due to the disease I have, NMO. I've stacked on so much weight, and have decided it's time to lose it. By putting it out there, there will be nowhere to hide! It's time!
