I haven't updated in a couple weeks, and I appologise. I've had a pretty serious chronic fatigue syndrome flare up, and haven't had the strength or will to train. Its all I can do to get out of bed during these episodes, so I'm lucky just to get to work. I am still not at 100%, but I do think I'll be able to get to training tonight. We'll see how I feel after work today.
CFS is something I've been dealing with for about seven years now, and has taken a good portion of my youth. My doctor thinks it might be linked to my service in Kuwait and Iraq (CFS is more prevalent in veterans of this region), so I'm going to be pursuing VA benefits. I'm not really out to get money from this illness, I'm more interested in treatment options. I feel like if this disease is actually service connected, then the VA should fix me. If I do get a pension, however, I'll not turn it down. I have a daughter to put through college, after all :P
I want to thank everybody who reads this blog for helping me stay motivated. I don't get a lot of commenters, which is fine. I see the page views tick up, and it motivates me to keep training and keep writing. I've gotten over 500 page views, and I'm certain that less than 100 of those are from myself! So thanks again! I'll post a write up if I train tonight. Thanks for the support.
