Getting a jump on the New Year’s Resolutions

Well… sort of not really. Yesterday a friend tagged a lot of us on Facebook and invited all of us to a Yoga session at the gym to get started on our New Years Resolutions.  I was all like sure, why not, not my New Year Resolution, but I know it is one for many …

Christmas Eve Eve

Not feeling very Christmassy these days.   I don’t know why exactly. I was jealous of my sister heading to my parent’s house today.  As I watched the photos of the long drive tick by and saw then more photos of my nephews enjoying the house and my parents, i felt kind of left out. …

Moving right a long.

Monday. I woke up with what I think was pretty good sensation in my right foot. The sensation of rubber bands  stuck around my toes seems to be decreased.  BUT I am also really analyzing each sensation for possible recovery. My body is still sore from Saturday’s excitement. In addition, I seem to have a …

And that’s a wrap!

I have FINALLY finished the Virtual Half Marathon that I started after the injury. I am very excited to get my medal in the mail. Though I am a bit concerned as I see some folks have gotten theirs already. When I started the virtual half, my first session was for a tenth of a …

Fatigue

Saturday….

Saturday… Despite the Drama of Friday…Saturday was a pretty good day. I continued my taper of the Neurontin.  I’m at about half the dose, I can tell because my foot and calf are somewhat tingly and that’s unpleasant, but it does tell me that there is still a problem, which is important. I took the …

Freaky Friday

Oh man.  I feel like Job.  I really can not catch a break. On Friday I just for whatever reason did not want to go to work, even though I was to be at a different hospital, with one of my Co-workers who I adore. So I got a late start and I was anxious …

Thursday fun

Well. To jazz up this post I’d love to post a photo of the new beautiful daughter of my Coach. She is PERFECT. I am not biased. All that said, it’s not really the thing to do, she’s not my kid after all.  She is making me smile a lot though. I’m still going through …

Fingers Crossed

I am unsure but…I believe I am seeing some improvement in my symptoms for real. I am noting that gradually over the weekend and yesterday and this morning that I am moving a little bit more intuitively and naturally. I still have a lot of Nerve symptoms.  My right calf burns rather all the time. …
