well, ill be honest; i didnt think it would actually happen. but here i am, a week and two posts later, and ive stopped using proper grammar and punctuation. i mean, i did intend to keep this looking like a really nice and professional blog, but once again my slackness got the better of me. anywho, onto business...

its almost been a week since i started taking the glyconutrient stuff, and to my surprise, ive started to notice a change. i dont want to jump the gun and read too much into it, but all i know is this: my cough has changed a bit, and i seem to be coughing up less than i have been lately. and the only thing ive been doing differently is this new treatment. i havent increased my exercise or diet. in fact, ive done the opposite. ill blame it on the weather. yeah, thats it. lousy smarch weather.

anyway, so what does this mean? as far as im concerned, the treatment has done SOMETHING. i dont know how much or if it will continue to do more, but obviously that will become apparent after a while of using it, which is something i intend to do, just to give it a decent go. but im quite surprised as to how i feel since taking it. i didnt think much would happen, especially so soon.

so thats an update. i didnt want to post anything and jinx myself, but i guess i owe it to youse and myself to write down everything thats been happening.

oh, and one last thing. since this is a blog about my health, ill finish with my eye is hurting.

Glyconutrients and such

Just yesterday I had a meeting with a naturopath friend and I've decided to try this new treatment, which is to do with these little things called glyconutrients (if you want more information, visit www.glycoscience.org and you can even type in cystic fibrosis in the search field if you want to see what it can do for me in particular ;).

I don't know how many of you know, but the last few months have been quite difficult for me health wise. I haven't really been feeling the best and even a two week dose of IV antibiotics didn't seem to help at all. So really this couldn't have come at a better time - just when I was starting to think that there was nothing that could make me better (as melodramatic as that sounds). So I'm really hoping that this will help me, even if its just a little bit. I started the treatment today and will continue to do so for a month or so, and then we'll see if I've improved at all.

If by chance anyone wants to have a look into this in more detail for themselves, just ask me and I'll get the necessary information for ya.

First entry...

Well, I'm giving this thing a try. I figured since I'm doing a documentary essentially about my health, I might as well get used to being completely honest and open with everyone, and what better way to start than to have a blog on the internet? I highly doubt anyone will read, but if they do, I cant promise anything insightful or even interesting. Just my thoughts rambling on and on and on... kinda like this first entry.

We'll see if I can be bothered keeping everything updated. Can't promise anything.
