My internist and massage therapist say I've really sent my upperbody backwards from those few days on crutches. (old injury) I don't know if I'm more mad at the old pod for putting me on them, given that neither foot was good, or if I am more mad at myself for going along with it,knowing my upper body history.
So, I am back to two weeks of PT on my neck/shoulder. I do love the electric stem. Strange, no one ever offered that for my feet. It does wonders for my neck. Probably need more PT than two weeks, but you know how insurance is. My massage therapist said I had a Lexation (spelling?) that was out of alignment in my neck. In plain English, this means a bone had shifted. He's a genius when it comes to massage. When I went in there, I could barely turn my neck without great pain. Now, I only have minimal pain. But he says it will take awhile to work out all of it. He has advanced training in all sorts of stuff.
I just want to be back at the health club having fun. I live right down the street from it, and everytime I see people walking in the door, I wish that were me. Yeah, I can swim, but I'm not a swimmer. I like the machines and the track. But I will be patient. I'm a little better for the first time in almost two weeks from that hideous relapse, and I know I need to keep taking it easy. I keep having to turn down invitations from friends to go do fun things that I know I can't do now. That too is a bummer. In the summer, we hangout at the T-Head alot (for the landlocked, this is the pier along the ocean... chocked with entertainment). But there is almost no where/few places to sit. I hope when I'm better, they still remember to ask me out.
Can't wait to take that Birks trip to the Big City on Thursday. I think I will start with the Arizona with a strap. Nancy's suggestion about being assertive and pushy to get a good salesperson is right. I could do that better on assertiveness if alone, but I will have my friend with me. But I will ask who has worked there the longest and had the most experience with Birks. I never mind trying on 20 pairs of shoes.
I'm also going to get some quality water shoes for the pool since that is the only form of exercise currently available to me. Any suggestions?
Thank you so much for all your support. There have been days lately I think I would have lost my mind without you.
The tingling feeling is subsiding. That is also encouraging.
