    Age of Pandora - Day 37

    Had another visit to the ER last Tuesday. Pretty sure I started having another anaphylactic reaction, but it was a small one, because I only injected a tiny amount of medicine. Anxiety took over and rocketed my vitals into the stratosphere. Doc authorized 1 mg of lorazepam, and that calmed me right down. Had a long talk with the doc and a couple other medical folks about the future of the treatment and my blood pressure. I'm not going to continue the treatment for various reasons. Exercising today felt more comfortable, as I haven't been on the treatment since Tuesday. My body has been adjusting, but it felt good to not have worry about whether I'm gonna have a random reaction in the middle of exercising. I originally started this treatment with the end goal of feeling like a normal person and being able to eat normal things without them affecting me. I'd have more food choices. But, in a sad bit of irony, my current health status requires me to eat things that I can eat already with out much negative effect. Yeah, I won't be able to eat salmon for omega-3's or chicken for lean protein, but those would be my only meat choices and have substitutes for those. The treatment hasn't even started working as intended and it's been a year getting my body used to it and may take longer. By the time the treatment may start working, I wouldn't have the freedom I desired at the beginning.

    I hope and plan to have a more consistent schedule in the coming days, I just been dealing with all this medical stuff.

              So here it is. Sunday, Oct 11. More time went by than I thought. This past week has just been exhausting and frustrating.

              But, today:

              Age of Pandora - Day 40 -- Mission ALMOST Complete.
              There a particular goal to achieve this day and it led me to discover the secret of the map....that honestly is probably not a secret to anyone else. I'm over 2/3 the way to completing that goal. I did quite a bit of work. I'll need to finish it tomorrow since I can't go forward without completing it.

              However. The exercises for this day were modified because of a old friend of a medical issue that has reared it's ugly head. One that pretty much prohibits me from using my lower body in any strenuous activity until I can get it checked out and dealt with. So that means upper body movements only. I need to avoid trying to get down on the floor if I can.

              I plan to finish Age of Pandora, no matter what, because I hate the idea of having to repeat history where I start one of these awesome programs and then quit part way through.

              20 more days

                Age of Pandora - Day 40: 600 jab+cross+hook combos

                Puts me at 8100 and I need 10,000. This will mean splitting up the task over multiple days, given the amount of exercises to do.

                  Well, tried to continue Day 40, and did 400 jab + hook before I was told I had already looted that one. So I spent time looking at the handy dandy map to find upper body things I could do next time to reach the goal. And then I added milk crates to my desk to make it a standing desk so to help with my medical issue.

                      1000 Horse stance punches (modified)

                      I reviewed my scraps and I am at 9350 right now, and I noticed I started at 8850 today, so in my last post, I was at 8500 before doing the archers.
                      650 more to go. ( I'll end up with a little extra since the tasks I'll need to do won't result in an exact amount.)

                        Age of Pandora
                        1000 backfists
                        100 elbow strike combos

                        Got my payment for the backfists, but I have 500 more elbow strike combos to do which will happen tomorrow, and that will put me over the required amount to proceed.

                          Finished up the 500 elbow strike combos and ended up with 10250 scraps. Proceeded to the next chapter with much rejoicing.
