Stopping it before more damage…

I knew last night would be rough, trying to go to sleep, already worn out an ready and 3 hours later, it’s up and down after crawling in the bed… there are times, I would like to light that bed on fire… just to pay it back for torturing me… and in reality… it’s the brain and body revolting….

Doing some reading yesterday, in between the blurry eye issue and come across some text about what not to do with spinal and cervical stenosis and that aha moment happened…

I like stretching, it feels good, it loosens me up and it feels ever so good…

When I was in the Air Force back in the 70’s the doc said, quit doing back bends, they are hurting you and I quit… I didn’t know why they were hurting me and with the way things got covered up at Vance AFB… I forgot lots they told me… because, they were right…. and 4 decades later, I’m finding that out…

Gravity… gravity has always been my enemy and one of my chief complaints was how heavy my head felt and they did nuclear bone scans and found my bone was modeling all over my body and they didn’t know why… because when I asked mommy about injuries, she said…”nothing happened to you as a child but normal illness”…. well we know that to be a lie…

So what’s heavy head got to do with stretching… well my reading said any stretching I do, should be on the floor and in a laying or sitting position, to take the stress off my neck and spine… I don’t quite get all this yet, we are talking gravity… It takes time to read all the medical information, take what applies to me and filter it out for stuff that doesn’t apply to me… you can tell how much help from health care I’m getting on this…

But the PT kid did tell me no more back wards leaning stretches and recommended other things for me to do, to stretch out the constricted and knotted vessels and supporting tissue… yep this isn’t fun…

When I woke up, I could tell I slept in a fetal position, my neck is very unhappy with me today….

So I have to give it to that flight surgeon I saw at Vance that was a Osteopath… he was on the right track… he told me to sleep with a pillow between my legs in 1977 and I have done that ever since, to take pressure off my spine… he also told me, before my last year, no more running and the Air Force made me do my mile and half run with a three mile walk instead… come to find out, that walk wasn’t any smarter with my injuries… but I did it and walk a few miles every week, sometimes… I use the elliptical mainly in the house…

No, the last couple of years, seeing the PT kids and learning all the things I should have never done and did and know, not to do them ever again, like getting on a Zip Line…

No my days of adventure are over… I’m now the sedate little lady of the house and protector of that house from all an the bangers… have been ever so quiet… love it when a neighbor jumps on board for the sake of the law….

Today will be a long one… exercise to help undo last nights sleep… struggle to keep last night dinner down, till it’s full digested… which so explains the mal nourished look in those pictures… an that just means spinal cord injury before the age of 6… an the vagus nerve became my worse nightmare… yep I’m learning….

Just thought of the write from last night… “They dropped their head in shame”… yep, the worse I ever did to my kid, was slap my oldest when he was 16 years old…. an I’m a bad parent, because I said, lies and cheating were not acceptable… oh well… they be so called men, maybe more like christians than I thought… you never know… haven’t had contact with them for a few years…

Well the day is started, it’s going to be so hot again and no trades, so AC an hide inside again… and work on little projects….

I have a day of reviewing what I dreamed and so far, I’m not pissed, mad or angry… and that tells me… I got nada last night… except for a headache where those last 3 teeth are… so over these headaches…

Toodles…

Adorable Spite… watching christians and Trump implode...
