Finding it easy to stay on diet and eat reasonably portion sizes. Also I am back on the 16/8 fasting schedule, and again it's relatively easy to do. My weight this morning was 230.4 pounds and feeling like I am reducing overall body weight.
I guess it's time to say that the new medicine that I'm on is medical marijuana. One strain helps me tremendously with reduction of pain and with helping my ADD symptoms. I can stay on task yet keep Many upcoming tasks in my active memory. In addition, I find that I have more energy and feel like doing more things. Of course this could simply be the reduction of my intake of opiate pain meds, and some of the anti-/seizure meds that I've been on for four years.

I know that I am taking risk by self regulation of the meds, but I am hoping that the combination of my high fat Ketogenic diet plus the addition of the antiepileptic qualities of medical marijuana will counter the deletion of one of my seizure drugs. I still am on one of my seizure meds during the day and I also take one at bedtime, both of which are generic and affordable. The one I have come off of is still on patent and costs me several thousand dollars a year, even though I am covered under a generous State University family PPO plan, and a Medicare plan as secondary.

Sometimes I think it would be better if I were divorced and on my own and then subject to complete federal and state health and prescription coverage, in addition to other benefits as well. FML.

Journal notes 26 September 10 AM

Almost forgot, yesterday was the start of my fifth year of being a brain cancer survivor and sometimes Thriver!
Yea me!, i have never given up.The beast still lives inside of me. Never Will I give in, i keep fighting every single day.


I weighed in at 231.4 pounds. Not bad for a 0 cal restriction I've been eating well staying on modified Atkins diet. Health is been variable but the new medicine does help when I take it. I had to mix up my schedule from flying to California and back to Florida. I forgot that I have an MRI at my new brain tumor Center in Santa Monica. So I had to make a flight back early and luckily I was able to use to Southwest coupons to pay for the flight as I am pretty tapped right now. Emotionally I've been doing OK, as I think I'm getting a handle on the domestic situation, and making slow progress there. Sometimes I just break and I can't handle it anymore but it seems easier to climb back up and suck in the air. I'm becoming more social and working on myself, giving myself opportunities to do what I like to do, having lunches seeing old friends just being. Don't know where this is going to end up but I do know that I'm going to be with my son, nothing will drive me away from him, I will be living with him and his mother giving him the life that he deserves helping him grow into the man that he can be. That is the prime directive, secondary directive is me being healthy and "happy".

Woot!
So I guess is the monthly journal entry for September,.
So for the last two weeks of August and the first two weeks of September I've been in the new California apartment, where I tend not to cook well for me, as I am cooking for my family and don't spend enough time just for me,.
This last week can I've been in the Florida home where I've been shooting for a television network Series pilot , Then spent a day with my elderly mom and all the fun that could be, and now have been home for one day. And my Florida home requires me to work to get ready for rental therefore I've been working and not eating much the last week , so I'm down to my lowest historic weigh on fat secret. I think. Yay!
Plenty of emotional upheaval with my mom and other relationships-so that's been stressful on me but I've had a much better time with my medical issues and I've got medicine that has helped me greatly. I feel much more motivated to work, and, to complete the work that I start. And the increased ability to handle multiple tasks is rewarding. Just writing this journal article, is an example of the motivation and ability that I feel. In fact, as I'm using Siri, seeing the dictated words appear on my screen, seems akin to a miracle.

Whew, I had to stop there for a few minutes, just reread and edit these few lines. Nobody knows how hard this whole brain cancer journey has been, here it is almost 4 years to the day since I suffered a grand maul seizure, coma, neurological intensive care unit for four days, and the diagnosis of a serious life altering diagnosis. Life limiting is the more correct descriptor. Being told that you're probably gonna die within 18 months. Period.

Sorry there I was fighting with Siri. Anyway I think this journal entry is best ended and then I can continue in my own off-line journal.
