All I know is I am once again changing my diet. Once I feel like I am not relapsing I am really going to push the exercise thing. I need to make my health my life, as in, be super pro-active, something I wish I had maintained since first being diagnosed. I just want to feel like I have some sort of control over my life again, my body. I’m sick of being tired and tired of being sick.
