Wasting away

Published by Resurgam in the blog Resurgam's blog. Views: 378

I am having to remake a lot of clothes, either using the same materials of using the same pattern in a smaller size - I just realized how much smaller my waist is as the kilt I used to wear when diagnosed now wraps around twice rather than one and a half times.
I think it was a fatty liver - my middle was rock hard so I could hardly bend over, and if I did I went dizzy.
This chair is one with arms and goes up and down, but the more padded version is too high for me - it goes up and down, but goes ridiculously high and not low enough for my feet to be on the ground. That is so uncomfortable.
