Scraping my window

Standard

Last year I didn’t have a car at this time, so yesterday when I went to scrap the ice of my window, I didn’t even think of my hands hurting.  As I pushed the scrap on the car, I felt the pain, then instead of stopping, I continued to scrape down and omg PAIN and write now, it actually really hurts to type, so I’m done.

Ouch

well, I wrecked my neck, been going to the chiroprator for about a week now, it’s working but it hurts, I know in time it will get better. But I also know I will always have neck problems because I have osteoarthritis and bone spurs on my c5 and c5 vertebae.  yay me.  I’ve been pretty doped up and in pain for a few weeks.  I bang my head on a pipe, that’s what started all of this.  I have been in bed most of the day, I finally moved to my recliner about an hour ago so I could try to sit up.  It hurts but I’m doing it, the pain pills and muscle relaxer do help but not all the time.  I’m incredibly cranky, just found myself yelling at my dog for no damn reason.

On the upside my friend Mara took me out for a late breakfast yesterday and brought me some pain patches along with a lot of other trinkets.  It’s getting close to her leaving, I told her yesterday how important she is to me, that she is such a caring and empathetic person, for all she goes through, she is such a caring person.  I’m really going to miss her.  We didn’t see each other much, mostly talked over text, email or FB but when we did get together it was always fun, she is just a great person to be around.  I am happy for her though, so Mara if you’re reading this, I’m happy for you that you’re moving and have a great place lined up, please please please, find a RA doc when you get there 🙂

It’s been a while

Standard

I’ve been away from my computer.  Not much has changed with my RA except that it’s getting worse lol My knee and my hands are just not liking me too much.

This cold weather is not helping at all either, it’s like 10 degrees with a windchill of like -14.  Yes it sucks.  I did manage to get a concussion and whiplash by banging my head on a pipe in the basement, I ran right into that sucker.  Apparently I have post concussion syndrome, I go see my NP tomorrow, she’s just going to tell me I need PT.  I’ve had trouble with my neck in the past, it took 6 months of PT to fix it, I have a neck pillow even, usually when my neck hurts, after a nights sleep with that pillow I am fine, but this is not the case.

My friend hasn’t moved yet, not sure when she is moving, I haven’t talked to her in a few days, I think, my memory sucks right now.
