WEEKLY WEIGH IN

It has been a really rough month. Between a huge flare up and what we suspect was a weird strain of COVID (no fever/cough but my other medical issues could skew that) – I have been up and down in huge swings for weeks. Hopefully it’s coming to an end and I can get back to losing.

If you aren’t familiar with my situation, basically I live with several autoimmune issues… an “inflammatory overstimulation response” brought on by my basic blood cells thinking they are Spartan Warriors and attacking everything in sight. [Mast Cell Activation Syndrome or MCAS]

This is not water weight, not sodium retention and it doesn’t go away until the cells calm down and the actual muscle inflammation decreases. Everything swells – my muscles, my organs, my eyes…

Foods, chemicals, weather changes, environmental elements… literally, sometimes just existing fires them up. Some things I can control and otherwise it is a #justkeepswimming kinda life.
