Occupational therapy in my home

Occupational therapy in my home

There’s been a lot going on this week and I’m not sure where to begin. After being traumatized this weekend, it was hard for me to even focus on everything that was happening, and a lot was happening. My new aide started on Monday, I got an OT evaluation to start that twice a week in the house, and Mikayla left. I’m also going for a urologist appointment on Friday to discuss the Botox in the bladder. I haven’t decided…

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…

My words are my actions

My words are my actions

One thing I can say about myself is I’m not a slacker. If I say I’m going to do something, I’m going to do it. I wrote about my weakness in my legs the other day My muscles are getting weaker. In the blog I realized I had to do something. So I first thought on safety. I can’t fatigue myself to the point I can’t transfer. My daughter has been so helpful when my aid isn’t around but she’s…

My muscles are getting weaker

My muscles are getting weaker

I have to be honest, my legs are super tired by the end of the night. I’ve been having some real issues getting myself into bed. Luckily my daughter has been around to assist and readjust my legs. My original thoughts were why? I’m resting most of the day after I exercise. Then it occurred to me, I’m moving even less now than the little I was moving before. This is bad. The more I’m in hibernation, the weaker I’m…

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…

Occupational therapy evaluation

Occupational therapy evaluation

So I went yesterday for an occupational therapy evaluation at the same place that I’ve been going to therapy for the past four years. However I only participated in OT last year. I never realized I could do both. When my insurance ran out last year I actually took a break for the first time. Normally when my insurance runs out I go on their maintenance program but this time I just decided to continue doing my own exercising at…
