I have all day doctor appointments on Thursday including a few at a new VA location in Indy!! This should be interesting. 🙂

So since I will be awake all night and then all day, I am not working Thursday night. Maybe when I was younger I could’ve done this, and I have when I was in the Army but with my health issues and multiple doctor(s) warnings about not overextending myself. Nope! No longer will I do this!

And since these appointments could not be scheduled on Friday, -most VA doctor’s don’t work Friday’s, I don’t blame, I don’t either. lol it should be a nice weather day for golfing. Me, I’m getting my hair finished up, I hope!! And a massage. I have the doctor’s note approving me to begin again with therapeutic massage treatments! Woohoo! Hot rocks and lotion!! Especially since I have lost a great deal of my range of motion with my back and arms!! I’ve found myself having what I call, mannequin freeze. I bend or turn a certain way and I’m screwed!! I’m now locked in that position until I can massage or breathe my way out of it. Usually ten minutes later. Patrick has finally noticed this and is worried, this is not normal!! Duh!! But my one doctor doesn’t seem to understand what I mean, so Thursday I’m going to have to do it to myself on purpose, fuuuuck! That is going to hurt bad!! Which is the other reason, Friday has been scheduled already!!!

As it is, it just happened a half an hour or so ago and my right side is hurting so bad. I would put on my tiger balm patches, but I can’t get to the right spot and Patrick is sleeping. Hopefully, the ibuprofen kicks in soon!!

Breathe in slowly, hold and exhale slowly….repeat!

Namaste!
