Friday’s thoughts 25092020
I went out for the first time since my surgery. My mother needed an errand done and I volunteered to go so I could go to Starbucks. I had a cloud caramel macchiato and a pumpkin scone, which I will have tomorrow morning for breakfast. It took me a while to get home because I had to take two buses but it was great to get out. I am wicked tired from the outing but that is to be expected. I am still not 100% recovered from surgery and I am definitely deconditioned. It is going to take a while for me to recondition myself to things. Tomorrow I am going out with some friends. We will be ordering from a restaurant and then watching a movie. It should be a good hangout session.
I got in touch with my psychiatrist after I wrote to him this morning about the voices being ramped up. He agreed to increase the Invega to 6 mg a day. He then wants to check in early next week. I had a hard time trying to sleep last night because of pain and insomnia. I didn’t go to sleep till 5 am this morning. My mother woke me up with her request to do the errand. It wasn’t until noon time so I had enough sleep. I am really tired after the outing so I think I am going to try and make it an early night tonight. I am not going to listen to the ballgame. That just gets me excited. I listened to last night’s disaster game until the 4th inning. I had to shut it off as the pitching just fell apart. They lost 13-1 last night, their last home game of the season. There are only three games left in the season for the Sox. I am sad that it is over but glad it is because they really sucked this year. They are in last place, again.
I tried making an appointment with PT today but got their voicemail. I left a message but haven’t heard back. I probably will on Monday. I hope to have the cramp decrease this go round with them. That was one of the reasons why I couldn’t sleep last night. I kept on having cramps in my back and pain. Today I am sore and my lower back is hurting but I think that is from all the walking I did today. My ankle isn’t happy with me either. It started up a couple of hours ago and hasn’t settled down. The pain meds helped some but not all of the pain. Nothing ever takes away all the pain.
I am excited to see my friends tomorrow. It has been nearly a year since I last saw them because of this stupid pandemic. I am glad we are ordering from the restaurant rather than having a sit in it. I am kind of paranoid about being in restaurants these days. If we were going to a restaurant, I probably wouldn’t be seeing my friends. I just don’t want to risk getting infected. I just hope my ankle settles down by the time I wake up tomorrow and I get some decent sleep tonight.
