Voluntary Best Friends

Voluntary Best Friends

I am still dealing with all the little things, but I’m not as down as I was writing Monday’s blog. I can report that there is still areas I’m making improvements. Tuesday I was actually able to get up from sitting on the toilet seat. It was a “dry run” exercise with my occupational therapist. I was actually able to get up twice. I didn’t even use that seat that goes over the bowl to raise you up. I was…

Occupational therapy vs Physical Therapy

Occupational therapy vs Physical Therapy

Happy hump day. Another day, another week. This week was a little different for me because my daughter is home for a visit. I love having her home. I love her energy in the house. I love how she climbs into my bed when she wakes up and is always in my bed before I go to sleep. I miss her when she leaves until I get use to her being gone again. Right now I get to enjoy her…

Happy Monday

Happy Monday

Good morning, happy Monday to all. Hopefully everyone had a lovely weekend. I had a great visit with my sister, niece and nephew on Saturday. My dogs enjoyed the visit too. It’s nice to see a 9 and 10 year olds energy around two dogs. The dogs exhausted before they did. Sunday was Formula 1 and it was the only race in the United States. Next season they added a second track in the US, Miami. The big difference in…

Physical therapy 1st appointment

Physical therapy 1st appointment

I can’t say enough good things about this guy. He is just a person size package of warmth and healing. It is nice to be the only one the therapist is focused on during an hour session as well. Even though my occupational therapist was from the same company, he was no where near the caliber of my physical therapist. My hour session were never an hour more like 30-40 minutes at best. I wasn’t complaining. He was more like…

What’s happening in Multiple Experiences world

What’s happening in Multiple Experiences world

I’m doing a lot better with my new wheelchair now. I don’t love everything about the chair but I am consistently using it now. It turns horribly, I hate that. It is also difficult if you maneuver wrong and hit a wall. You can’t just do a simple correction. You have to move forward or back still hitting the wall to maneuver yourself off the wall, if that makes sense. The wheels that move this chair are in the middle…

I’m going out…my wheelchair evaluation

I’m going out…my wheelchair evaluation

I’m going out into the zombie apocalypse tomorrow. Wish me luck. It will be my first time out in almost two weeks. I’ve been very good at hiding myself away to keep safe but now I must make an appearance. I finally got an appointment for a wheelchair evaluation at my physical therapy office. I’ve waited four months to be seen. I couldn’t decide to not go. They assured me that the staff is in masks and the gym is…

PT like it or not…

PT like it or not…

This might be brief. I just got home from my double therapy sessions. I am wiped out as expected. OT was challenging and PT was hard as expected. I can’t say I dislike my new PT therapist she knows what she is doing but makes me work. She is more focused on my exercises, all of them. Today she had me doing the leg press from the chair. I’ve done this a million times in therapy and found it to…

Not liking physical therapy

Not liking physical therapy

So after a second day of consuming a regiment of oregano oil and using Doterra Breathe, I got into bed sneezed once and never sneezed again. Achoo-ing through the night. Woke up fine. So strange!!!! I’m doing much better with the Provigil. I’m so happy to report. I am no longer waking up exhausted as if I never slept. That has been such a huge difference that I’ve been able to get back to my life. I have still been…

Physical therapy, physically exhausting

Physical therapy, physically exhausting

I had my first physical therapy appointment of the year yesterday after my occupational therapy. I knew I’d be exhausted after but I completely underestimated how exhausted I’d actually be. It took me hours to be able to move out of my chair when I got home. Hours!!!! I’m working with a new therapist. She is very nice but she is going to be tough. No different then the other girls I’ve worked with but the difference is she is…

Les Millis Bodyjam Workout

Les Millis Bodyjam Workout

I’m setting up my blog the night before because tomorrow I start my double therapy sessions. First day back in physical therapy so I’m a little scared. Scared because I know it will be hard. On another note, I am always looking for fun new workouts that I can revise to work for me in a chair. I love dance workouts like Cize or Rockin Abs both from Shaun T on Beachbody. I have figured out how to bop in…
