It has been a long time since 2012. Rereading what I wrote then and not much has changed. There are more teeth on the plates. I still cant eat with the things in my mouth. The good news though is that I was at a funeral/memorial service last week and I got up to say a bit about the dear departed and everyone clapped when I finished which was pretty nice of them. Then afterwards several came up to me and said how well I spoke. And one said how great it was that they could hear every word I said even in the back row. And I wasn’t even using the mike.
So that’s good. The old gift of gab still works. However the mouth remains uncomfortable after more than a few hours which severely limits social interaction and I cant eat anything except icecream or very soft cheesecake when out.
I noticed that back in 2012/2013 I complained of weight loss, heading for size 8. Now heading for something lower. A few weeks ago I was at doctor he wanted to do blood pressure but he said, after cutting off my circulation for a while, that he couldn’t tell me what it was, my arm was too thin for the cuff to sit round properly. Very strange. I am more tired and lacking in energy and strength. Better go and eat. I hope to be back in much less than 2 years.
