I spent the last week at senior high camp. I packed all my meds (even my B-12 injections) and took them faithfully every single day. I knew I couldn't afford to miss a day no matter how inconvenient they were.

The first couple days, I struggled with fatigue but managed through alright. I couldn't sit in the hardback chairs for more then about 30 minutes. I spent a lot of time either standing up or sitting at the tables when my knees couldn't take any more standing. When my back and neck started hurting from that, I moved to the floor. By that time, the speaking was usually over and we were good.

One thing - I got a wonderful massage twice while I was there and decided I needed that more often. It made such a huge difference.

I ran a lot on Tuesday in a game of capture of the flag. I've paid for it since then with fatigued legs and muscles. In the mornings, I could barely make it from the dorms to the main building without my legs hurting so bad and being a little winded.

My feet bothered me the first few days and then stopped itching. I noticed tonight that both of my ankles are extremely swollen and red - not really sure what's going on there. They also feel weak and jell-o like. Who knows.

Vision - blurry.
Focus - blurry.
Brain - a little foggy.

I'm a little worried to see how the next couple of days go. I'm expecting a relapse after expending that much energy over the past five days.

However, I don't regret it. It was truly a life changing experience...more on that on the other blog.
