Run Forest [Mar. 27th, 2008|02:02 pm]
[Current Mood |hopefulhopeful]

Today for the first time I ran for 1 minute on the treadmill.

That's nothing for most people. For me, it's a fist raising moment. You know, when you have chronic nerve pain and can't feel equally in both legs, it's harder than just mustering up the energy.

Fingers crossed that my pain level doesn't go up. Life dream to run 5 minutes, now begun.

In boring health news, my liver numbers are up again which means I have to give up wine (again) because the doctors can't figure out why the numbers get elevated. This has been going on for 15 years now (snooze).

Thanks! Now I hope I'm still able to walk tomorrow. That's the true test.

I was shocked! I forget how amazing my abilities could be if I weren't in such severe pain. Now here I am with it getting so much better and I'm really hopeful. I just hope tomorrow I can still walk. ;) I'm testing out my wings.

High five! I have foot problems so I "feel your pain." Well, not literally, thank God. Good job!

yay for running!

you know this already, so i'll be a broken record...your liver filters everything that goes into your body. perhaps new pain meds are elevating the numbers?

has anything else changed in your daily routine?

stress also can elevate your liver numbers.

Just stress. The liver function is doing well. It's just the second number is slightly elevated. The new drug is non-narcotic, but still could have an impact. Nothing else has changed. In fact, if anything, I'm doing more exercise than before.
