What I planned to write…

Told ya, sometimes they come back around and sometimes they hit that part of the brain that has damage and it goes in a black hole… really a bummer, when I have something good to write about with this damage to my body….

What I have noticed, this time around with PT… with the PT kids I’m seeing now, who saw me 2 years ago the change from……

I was struggling to walk, without tipping over…

Every turn of my head, sent me into dizzy tail spins and the stomach, holy moley my stomach… I wanted to hurl on a daily basis, every morning after coffee, I wanted to give the coffee back…

Not any more…

Even though I didn’t do the exercises they gave me two years ago daily… I still did them… an I got on the elliptical… I just didn’t work hard at it… I didn’t embrace it… an I still haven’t… but I have the motivation to keep me moving and not quit…

Dementia….

Once I understood what the neurologist told me on my last appointment and I digested all the test results… I knew dementia was always in my radar… I wrote that early on, in this goofy blog…. because of that possibility of dementia, that’s my motivation to do the workout, daily… not skip, not pass…

But, get up off my ass an do them…. and after 3 straight months of just that…

I actually feel better… not great, but the stomach is starting to settle down and night time munching seems to be a thing of the past…

I’m still having severe spasms when I eat and that is the autonomic neuropathy rearing it’s ugly head and that will probably never go away…

As for the tachycardia that was in over drive, that too has settled down, it doesn’t even happen when I get my cardio up… so, yep, it was the pinched nerve causing the irregular heart beat….

My pain up both sides of my neck has backed off an I can turn my head, almost as good as I could before El Paso VA hurt me… so, it’s getting there… but I can feel the instability of my neck and will always have it forefront on how easy it is to herniate it….

The strength training is working, the PT stuff for dealing with the injuries are working and sleep, as long as Freda stays out of my life, sleep, seems to be hunky dory and after decades of nightmares… I am so enjoying these nights, even the hot ones…

Hubby is doing better and we both feel better… we just know, we will always be vulnerable to illness and disease… and each morning we wake up, just means we are doing what is needed for a healthy body and mind….

I’ve done my cardio, or at least one of them, set that elliptical on tension 5, working up to 6, after I get to 10… it’s elevate and do mountain hiking… build up for our hikes when it gets cooler…

I got a strap work out to do and floor, so have a good one, stay safe and wear a mask for humanity’s sake or you are just a Trumpite…

Sgt. USAF DAV I remember… Margie…

Wear a mask or you are a traitor to America’s recovery…
