“I just ate less…among other things…” #103

“Okay…let’s all take a deep breath…”

My husband has fourteen million health problems...

Not really of course…but enough so that the Covid-19 vaccine will provide little if any protection.

He is an organ transplant.  He has had rheumatoid arthritis (an auto-immune disorder) for 40 years. He has type 2 diabetes. He is frail. He…  I could go on…but won’t.  I have made my point.*

So his truly safe path is to continue isolation.  There is no other way…since we all know he will probably if not assuredly die if he contracts this deadly disease.

And.  Since I am in constant contact with him and since even though I could get vaccinated and go about my merry way doing all the fun things I love to do…as millions of vaccinated people are doing right now… I cannot in all good faith take that tiniest chance that I would bring home that virus to him.  And kill him.

So.  Whereas he is somewhat content to not see our beautiful apartment and gorgeous views as a “prison with  big windows”…sometimes I do.  There I said it.

So.  Long story short. I have decided on a new weight-loss goal.  Because I need to focus on SOMETHING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

12 month goal of 130# to be achieved by June 1, 2022 .

6 month goal of 135# to be achieved by January 1, 2022.

*Incidentally there are millions of people in the world just like my husband for whom the vaccine’s efficacy is poor perhaps even non-nonexistent. 

The brains behind the vaccine development in all cases purposely decided to NOT allow organ transplant recipients and others with auto-immune diseases to be part of the vaccine trials. 

So…when that magic liquid was shot into the arms of those people no one really knew what would happen or more importantly…as it turns out…what NOT would happen.  Just so you know…in case you are in that group of people and have gotten vaccinated.

Now…let’s get happy and talk about my homemade Betty Crocker “dinette” cake with homemade chocolate frosting—which somehow took away any desire I may have had to eat even a half Hershey bar…  What the hell is up with that?

Have a nice day…

  1. I’m so sorry that you can’t go out and about – it sounds incredibly hard. I’m glad you’re finding goals to keep you focused. Have you any plans for a new story? I’d love to read another. I’m supposed to be preparing for a job interview right now, but I have a gorgeous kitten sleeping on me – I’ll do it later 😁
