Little miss Holly is going well apart from Whiskey scratched her in the eye and we had to whisk her off to the vet We have some antibiotic cream I have to put in it three times a day, The wound itself isn't too bad, but serious enough that we are glad we got her straight to the vet, because if infection set in or if it does set in she will have to have an operation on it, so atm we are crossing our fingers that it heals up well. The vet seemed to think with her being a puppy and the fact that we acted on it so quick, that's there a good chance it will heal nicely. But it's looking really good today, still cloudy around the wound but it doesn't look red or swollen.
Nevermind the blow out, what counts is that you don't use it as an excuse to quit or let it get you down.
Opal I'm trying to take the positives out the whole situation and see it as an opportunity to realise how much this journey has changed me already, just the fact that I haven't quit and I'm straight back to it, is a great positive in how my outlook has changed Previously I would have given up for probably a couple of months only to then try again.
But I am going to have alittle vent here about my struggles, if u don't mind... I've kept pretty quiet about my struggles with my weight and pernicious aneamia. I did mention it in the start of this thread but haven't said much since and didn't really mention some of the ongoing symptoms I struggle with.
Aside from a sluggish metabolism another symptom of my aneamia is weakness in my limbs and fatigue, and I've got to say somedays I do find it really hard to get motivated to exercise. Most days I can usually push past it, cause the last month or so has helped me to realise that once I've exercised a bit I do feel more energetic, and the fatigue isn't as bad and my arms don't feel like painful dead weights as much. But its the pushing past it thats my hardest battle. Food wise I'm usually really good and eating the small regular meals has really worked well for me and seems to help get my metabolism going alot better.
I can say I'm really glad for this forum, just for those moments when it all seems alittle much and I can get on here and have a read and it helps me push past the wall I just seem to hit somedays.
Anyway sorry for the marathon read, but I've been really battling with this the last few days and needed to get it off my chest. You guys are all so great and I have so much admiration for everyone going through this journey
