Well it is all but confirmed I have Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. There is no cure and no treatment. I have to just wait it out. I am still housebound and occasionally bedbound. I haven't set foot on the ice since training in May. I have lost all of my muscle mass and gained lots of weight. Curse of my body type: I have to exercise to maintain or loose weight. I can't do it by diet alone. Right now I can walk about the length of two houses and then I have to sit down. I do my grocery shopping from a wheelchair. It sucks but I'm pretty good at dealing with it. I have a good attitude most days. I'm still writing but now it is a food blog and an illness narrative about living with CFS. I still hope that someday I will return to the ice even if it only to do school figures again. I still love skating and miss it horribly. I did get to see both the local Christmas ice show and the Haydenettes skate in the Lexington ice show. It was great fun but I slept for hours afterwards.
