I've been dealing with a bad cold all week and have pretty much taken a vacation from cooking. Because I could hardly hold on to anything without dropping it, we've had pizza, pot pies, corn dogs and I'm sick of it!!
I'm still not back to where I need to be, but since I got a pretty good night of sleep last night, I decided that my family needs a real meal tonight. In just a little bit, we will be sitting down to BBQ spare ribs, baked potatoes, corn bread and apple crisp for dessert.
Since my new diagnosis, I have really enjoyed cooking. I guess that's why it's so difficult for me to sit on the couch when my DRD tells me to. We may be eating well tonight, but I know from past experiences that tomorrow my body will be shot and I'm okay with that. Today, it was more important to me that my husband and kids eat a non processed meal.
I'll just end this post by saying that I never thought I'd be able to cook for my family and find it such a blessing that I can do it with ease, even if that mean a difficult day for tomorrow.
After living the first 33 years of my life thinking I had Spastic Diplegia, a form of Cerebal Palsey, I was correctly diagnosed with Dopa Responsive Dystonia (DRD). I am on new medication and doing things that I never imagined possible. This has changed the lives of my husband and two daughters. I truly believe that I am living a miracle each and every day. Life can't get any better than this!
