I’ve been to a couple of PT sessions now, but all they have done so far is do the ultrasound and the TENS. My neck still gets very painful, if I have to sit for any length of time unsupported, such as at meals and at church, but already it is more flexible than it was. I see them today, Wednesday, and Friday. We went out last Friday for our Date Day after I finished the session, so I guess that’s the way we will do it for awhile.
I goofed on my medicines last week and put the Sinemet and Lodosyn in the boxes, as usual. That’s what my Neurologist told me to stop taking, and I forgot! No harm, really. But I made a big time bad mistake when I filled them this time. I put 4 diuretic pills in, where it should have been the colon relaxer pills!! I didn’t catch it until that night, when I take the last Bentyl by itself. That’s when I realized it was the wrong color pill. Makes me so mad at myself when I mess up like that. I’m just thankful I didn’t get into trouble with all that diuretic in me!!!
I started this post on Monday, but the interview I did last week about our Plush Memories Lost Toy Search Service was included in an msnbc.com article that published yesterday. So, I spent most of the day reading requests from families who are looking for lost lovies, and writing everyone to tell them about being featured in the article. I was on cloud nine all day long. We were able to connect two of our searchers with families who had the toy they needed, and were willing to give or sell it to them.
I got mixed up on the timing for my meds again, but not too badly this time. It’s just aggravating that it happens at all. I think it’s a Freud thing going on – I’m just sick and tired of all these meds, no matter how much I know I need them.
I’m tired today, too, because I stopped using the TAP for a few days, thinking that would help my neck to settle down. Of course that also means I’m not sleeping as many hours. I figure do without it one week, and if that is going to help, that would be long enough to see a difference. I will use the TAP again this weekend, or maybe next Monday, one way or the other.
The excitement of yesterday has calmed down now, but I am trying to stay upbeat, hurting neck or not.
