And yes. Indeed. Just looking back over the last year, much improvement (touchwood).

I was thinking this last night when in spite of having had a day before that would have once been a HUGE day with repurcussions, I was making dinner. Making dinner, not reheating or eating from the fridge, for myself and a friend albeit a very supportive friend.

It's nice to see that when my condition improves, I really am more competent. My capacity to learn comes back. My capacity to problem solve. My capacity to adapt to different circumstances and to act with agency. And my capacity to just shamble about (I came home by public transport again on Friday).

It's easy to forget that when you've been so sick for years.

Don't get me wrong, I still prefer other people's cooking and Big Sister's frozen meals are a staple, and a bloody good staple at that. But many nights now, I'm able to eat properly and put some thought into getting it right and getting some satisfaction when it comes out okay, rather than "choosing" to eat half-frozen bread again because I'm too knackered to even reheat some of Big Sister's lasagne.

It turns out, when I'm not too sick to think and act, half-frozen bread does not have much appeal.

Ah...here it is. I think that's a perfectly logical consequence of feeling better...to feel more capable and able learn again. I'm glad you have days like that!
