"Tooting" My Own Horn

WEGO Health Portal is having their annual Health Activist Awards and my blog, this blog, has been nominated again this year for two awards.
Now, I'm a pretty quiet person, and not one to toot my own horn (ha ha ha....he said "toot") but this year I wanted to say to those who have nominated me and this blog, "Thanks".
In this case, it truly is great just to be nominated.  I never started this blog for any kind of recognition or fanfare, but to help myself and in turn, others.
I feel honored and humbled and I thank you
If you wish to endorse the current nominations, or nominate me for another, then please visit the Nominees page

Remicade: Day 826

When you think about all the time I sit in the big black faux leather Lay-Z Boy, soaking up the $4000 freezing cold "juice" for 2 hours at a time, every 6 weeks.....I've been sitting in that chair for 19,824 hours...to date...and still going strong.

This day I weighed in the heaviest I have in awhile, 72.7 kg. (160lbs)  Funny, I don't FEEL heavier, but my pants are tighter around the waste these days.  Is it the Remicade?  could be....
One thing IS for sure, I don't regret starting the drug even with the possible side effects.

Bring on the fat-pants!!!

Happy Thanksgiving !!

That time of year again, and the season of
"all the food I'm not suppose to eat, but I'm probably going to"
It's Canadian Thanksgiving today and we're having all the family over to enjoy the company and the food.  Turkey, potato's, stuffing, carrots, brussel sprouts, cranberries, gravy, etc.  So, having said that, realistically, I SHOULD eat, the potato's, stuffing and gravy.  Why?  Cranberries go right through me, carrots (unless they are cooked right down to almost mush) cause blockages sometimes for me, brussel sprouts and turkey are gaseous causing food.
So, of course, I will eat it all and pay for it later =)

Happy Thanksgiving to all my family and friends.  Even with this disease, I have a lot to be thankful for.
