Poor Nutrition

I just received a 10 am phone call from the CLSC in my district. Yhey have closed my file with the nutritionist,  against her recommendation. Nutrition,  while not my chief symptom, it is something I struggle with no less. You need only one look at me to see that I am underweight. I have no idea how much I weigh, I typically weigh myself at the Neuro where they have a scale that I can simply oll onto. If I’m 186 cm tall, what is my ideal weight? Dunno, don’t have the energy to care. I’m not dying, but 3 years of chemotherapy did not aid my already emaciated frame. Just another blow to the face by the health care system. We’re talking about a Government agency in place to help me, but there’s no help coming. The decentralized nature of this great nationeans that I can pin the blame on Québec. Not really, but any time I can bitch about this province, I am all over that like white on rice!  I suppose it’s misplaced chagrin. I have a broader point of view,  but I chose to stamp my feet and retain my bigotrous atttitude.

    You are looking better than you did a few months back when we were all wondering if you would fade away to nothing. If Nutrition is what you need support with and the CLSC does not recommend covering this service, then perhaps a GP might recognize the obvious. Maybe that is the route to take to get the attention that you need.

    So sorry to hear this Andrew, I am sure your mom will ensure you are eating well as well as the rest of us.

    Best regards, Maria
