Getting back to life

Happy new year!
So I may have fallen off the blog wagon for just a bit there, but don't worry despite the wait for you it's a good thing, it means I'm living life.  I have been home now for almost 3 weeks.  I think I'm starting to get used to it.  It was a little weird at first.  So far the altitude has not effected me!  I noticed it a little at first but I could still breath fine and felt good!  For Christmas I went up to Aspen which was great!  I had not been in over a year.  Again the altitude barely effected me, I had no problem walking all over town.  It was so nice to be able to keep up with everyone and not feel awful!

My biggest challenge with being home is sick people.  I am still trying to figure this whole immune suppression out and being around people, especially sick seaming ones kinda freaks me out.  Before my transplant I was very much a go out and do things kind of person.  I really did not like sitting at home.  Now however, I find myself wanting to stay home much more.  I also get freaked out at the idea of hanging out with people.  I am still working on being more assertive and asking people to wash their hands and of course checking that no one is sick  before I come over.  This is definitely an area that my anxiety is starting to rear it's ugly head!  Hopefully as time goes by I will get better at this and return to my old fun self, but for now I will continue to be a hermit, hiding in my protected cacoon of sick freeness.
Until next time
