Today was therapy day. I say “was” because, well, the appointment started four minutes ago. You’ll note that I’m apparently not in my therapist’s office. There’s a reason for that. Long story short, my back went out this morning trying to get out of bed. I’ve been on the heating pad ever since, and only… Read More Welp, Maybe Not
Today was the local SCA group’s winter event, and my wife and I dressed up like good little Norse people and went. It was very good to see a lot of my friends there, and to get hugs from them, and to be told that we’re both missed. I attended a class on a piece… Read More Anachronistic Socialization
This morning I awoke, had to have help getting dressed, and immediately sat on the couch with heating pads on my lower back and across my shoulders. The pain in my back eventually faded to the point of tolerance, but the pain in my shoulders and neck remains. I’m used to pain in my left… Read More An Unwelcome Development
Once again, I am guilty of not writing (for over a month this time). Once again, I’ve been internalizing what I’m experiencing instead of venting. So here goes. Mentally, I’ve been okay. Not good, not bad, just kind of here, you know? Physically, however, things have not been good. I have had a problem for… Read More Is This The End of Zombieland?
I went to bed last night determined to make today a fresh beginning on getting my checklists done, as well as on working on a couple of projects that I have lined up to do. I wanted so badly to make today an awesome day. Instead, I’m sitting upright only with the help of a… Read More NaBloPoMo Day 16: Flat on My Back, Being Boring
I’m up early this morning. I have something that I want to accomplish with today, and that accomplishment deals with computer gaming, so I’m up two hours before my alarm goes off to get all the stuff that I need to do (reading, learning, my daily to-do list, etc.) checked off my checklist. Besides, the… Read More A Slight Improvement
I saw my therapist today. We had a good session. I mentioned that I completed last session’s homework and that it worked well, and we agreed that the next step is for the tool in question to be self-implemented, and done so earlier than my wife implemented it over the previous week. We discussed my… Read More Progress is Progressing
I am convinced my back is in bad shape. I’m used to chronic pain, to some extent. For a period of about two years, I had a headache more often than I didn’t, and multiple MRIs and CT scans could uncover no physiological reason why I was getting them. I still get headaches now and… Read More Back to Chronic Pain
