Stenosis triggers… like a Turkish bath after…

My body is starting to cool down again… for as long as I can remember and I know this issue started before I was 8 years old… with the culmination of spinal cord injuries… the spinal stenosis started real early in life…

Do I need the neurologist to tell which or what I have… nope…

There are two general types of spinal stenosis, Foraminal Stenosis also called Lateral stenosis, which involves compress or inflammation of a spinal nerve… we know all mine were involved…

The other one is Central Canal Stenosis, which involves compression or inflammation of the spinal cord… we know I have that too…

The last one is Cervical stenosis of the neck… that involves weakness, numbness, reduced fine motor skills, changes in walking, neck pain or stiffness, nerve pain, incontinence for the bladder an bowel… don’t ask how many surgeries I’ve had on the bladder or rectum… sigh….

So the above tells you what I have dealt with since I was a toddler… all of those issues… it really shows how lousy the Air Force was with health care and the VA, was just as bad…

Anyway, I was in the kitchen fixing veggies for future tempura meals and it hit… the heat… like a hot flash, an it came from my back… it reminded me of a childhood memory after a beating…

Last night in bed, I laid on my back trying to find a comfortable spot an it hit… the memory of when I quit sleeping on my back, because of the bunk beds… she couldn’t walk me across the bed from underneath if I wasn’t flat… I knew what she was doing… christian, child of god… worse sister on the planet…

I’m remembering… just doing simple tasks are triggering memories… so, I got a feeling… anything could show up in my headlights… this ride is just getting interesting….

But if you read the blog, when I was going through the worse of it… my fine motor skills went on a hike… they aren’t great now either… but taking the thyroid drug out of my system, gave some of that back and the exercise, should help make that better… playing my piano will help, help me learn more music too…

As for writing the book, I’m in a lot of pain, just typing this… I think I’ll be investing in a dictation program… I know Dragon is pretty good… but yea… this computer time… not going to work for writing the book…

Beautiful cool day, with rain off an on… new gate gets here next week and we get more privacy… hubby said the young woman was back… I hate to say it, but it’s the same girl my PT kid talks about and I think she is the daughter of that property owner or ex owner… I knew these people pimped out their kids, but to see it in real life… wow… we are watching an if the opportunity arises for intervention, we will let the authorities know… but she is using our corner to pick up tricks… I hope I’m wrong, but hubby is the one out in the property and sees them all the time… I don’t leave the house, except to do my chores and work out…

That just made me very sad….

Toodles…

Adorable Spite…
