DAY 11 Adding Hydroxychloroquine

Today for the first time in a very very very long time, I WANTED to go outside.  I WANTED to move my body, and I WANTED to be surrounded by beautiful nature and sunshine.  For a long time now I have WANTED to WANT to go outside….but really have not had any desire.  (I don’t know if this makes sense?)

I started a new med today:  Hydroxychloroquine.  It is yet another one of those that prevents me from fully enjoying the gorgeous sunshine.  It warns of photosensitivity along with my Doxycycline.  But I wanted to go outside so badly today that I decided to brave the outdoors.

I armed myself with SPF 60, a wide brim hat with UV protection, massive sunglasses, and of course long sleeves and long pants.  I look a little nuts, seeing it was sweltering outside today and I don’t know if I am being overly paranoid, but I really don’t want to sizzle!!

Anyways, I am pleased to say that I was able to walk today for 45 minutes, slow and steady of course, and breathe in the beauty of nature.  I have never been so pleased to be outside.  I almost forgot that I was ill for a few moments there.

I have come to appreciate the simple things in life, and savour the moments that I am given.  Today I was given many of those good moments and for that I am thankful.

Nature creates such beauty, and sometimes simply being surrounded by it can do wonders for your soul.  Of course I suffered for this long walk afterwards and my body rebelled, but it was worth every moment.  And now I rest, allow my body to heal, and wait for the next moment where I am able to do this again.

The journey continues….
