PT wiped me out
I woke up around 0630 to pee and never went back to sleep. I didn’t take a nap in the afternoon. I just been going. I am running out of half and half so will need to go to the store tomorrow. I tried getting some at the pharmacy but it was expired by three days. I dropped some film after PT and got my meds that I needed.
PT had me working on two machines. I was tired afterwards. My back started cramping up so she gave me a tennis ball to work it out after she massaged it for me. She said it was so tight no wonder it hurts. She is thinking of dry needling it the next time she sees me. I wouldn’t mind that.
The Sox had a day game. My cousin kept texting me the score. We won 15-1 and swept the series. This is the 7th game in a row that we have won. This is the 51st game they have won this season. I am so happy for my team.
The uro NP got back to me today. She asked some questions and I answered then asked some more. She decided that she would answer them tomorrow when we meet. I wrote down my questions so I wouldn’t forget what I wrote her. I had already forgot what the questions were so I am glad I looked it up.
My foot and ankle are hurting. The humidity has gone up even though the temps are in the 70s right now. I already took a breakthrough med because my neck and back were hurting. I feel like shit with my neck and shoulder, back, ankle, and foot hurting me all at once, all different kinds of pain. Yay me. I am so tired. I am glad the Sox played a day game. I can go to bed early. Tomorrow starts the west coast games so I will be up late paying attention to those games.
It’s 92 right now and it’s not even 1pm yet. It was like 84 around 9 this morning when I had my first cup of coffee. The house is hot as hell. I am cool in my room because I have the AC on. I would be dying if I didn’t. I need to shower and shave but the bathroom is so damn hot and just shaving my face flared up my back. I had to get the whiskers off as it just felt gross with the sweat and humidity.
I tried writing some in the memoir that I am working on. I think I wrote like 100 words and couldn’t write anymore. I have no idea where I am going with this and I am just narrating the history of my being trans. I want to write at least 200 pages but it is slow work because it is so personal and hits on feelings.
I wanted to go grocery shopping today but it is too hot out. It is going to be cooler the end of the week so I might go then. I want to get lemonade flavored Gatorade. I really like it. I might get some chicken and lemon so I can make chicken lemon on the grill. I like the way my sister makes it.
My mother just came home from the doctor’s office and her sugar dropped. I had to give her juice and make sure she got hydrated because the house is hotter than hell. She was sweating when she came home. I called her once she felt better to make sure her sugar was up in the normal range and she called me “madam”.
Ankle has flared up pretty good with all the stair climbing up and down. I haven’t eaten that much today so was starving come dinner time. I couldn’t go down right away because I was hurting so bad. My left ankle hurt and then my right calf cramped up, I became confused for the first time. I guess with the heat and everything I became disoriented for about a half hour. I drank some Gatorade to try and stay hydrated. I also took some magnesium pills for the cramps. Some random freak told me to take some supplements for anti inflammatory. That isn’t my issue. I am really tired of these idiots giving random advice when it is not asked for. Pain just peaked. Area around my ankle bone is hurting so damn bad and my neck is hurting from the stress. I want to take a Zanaflex but I know I will be sleepy if I do and won’t be able to avoid a nap like I am trying to do right now. I am so sleepy from the heat.
Listening to a make up game. Sox are playing the Marlins and just scored a run. Sox now leading 2-0. Marlins have a rookie on the mound. Brian Daubach was just on the radio. The boys interviewed him. He used to be one of my favorite players. Now 5-1 Sox and I missed how they scored because I went to the bathroom. It is the 5th inning. I have a good feeling about this game.
Listening to Taylor Swift all day
I finally was able to get Fearless (Taylor’s version) on my phone. It took nearly a week for the amazon app to get it on my device. I am so glad I finally have this music. Right now I am listening to Evermore and then I will switch to Fearless.
I am sort of in a brain fog so I don’t think this will be long. I am still feeling so wicked tired from the Covid. I had coffee and something to eat with it. I plan on having some more of my pad Thai that I ordered yesterday. I was able to eat a quarter of it along with the appetizer I bought with it. I don’t have an appetite today so I don’t know if I will eat.
I am so fricken cold. It is 67 degrees in my room and 50 outside. The wind is making everything colder. I wanted to go out but I keep on getting cold sweats. I think I am over the worst of it but this fatigue is really bad. I need to go to the pharmacy to pick up my meds but only one is ready and I rather have two than one. I contacted my doctor because I think who ever handles it thought, again, that I was requesting the same medication twice. I wish they would spell out the damn abbreviations so it would be easier to know one is immediate release and the other is extended release. Drives me crazy that I have to go through this every couple of months.
Sox are on fire, though they are down by two runs right now. I am not listening to the game like I should. I just don’t have the brain power to listen. I am feeling lightheaded. My blood pressure is low so I am dehydrated. I just got some soup from my sister so I can increase my fluids. I really been craving Lipton soup but we don’t have any. I put it on my grocery list. It is the only soup I like when I am sick. I just pulled a hoodie on because I am freezing. No fever though.
Cold cloudy Sunday
The temp dropped during the night and I woke up freezing around 0230. I was in pain and been taking pain meds throughout the night. Mostly been taking Zanaflex, Tylenol, and my breakthrough med. My whole left arm is hurting for some reason, from the shoulder to my hand. I haven’t lifted anything heavy in the last few days so I don’t know why it is bothering me. I just put on a long sleeve shirt because it is 64 degrees in my room. brrrrr
Four days till Opening Day at Fenway! I am very excited we are getting 162 days of baseball. Last year just sucked with 60 games. I don’t know if they will have the games broadcasted on the radio app this year or not. I hope they do so I can listen anywhere. My favorite pitcher got scratched for starting opening day due to dead arm. I really wanted to see him start off the season at home.
I am so tired so I just plan on staying in bed today. Only thing I have to do is my meds for the week. I should get rid of my recycle that has accumulated on my bed. I have empty Gatorade bottles at the foot of my bed. For some reason I can really suck down a 20 oz bottle faster than a 32 oz. I need to start preparing for changing my sheets again. I think I am going to wash the new sheets I have and then use them on my bed.
My neck is starting to hurt again. I need to put heat on my shoulders and neck. I haven’t done it in a few days because my neck wrap is on my bed and I keep forgetting to bring it down when I go downstairs. I’ve been wanting to make a cup of tea for a while now. I just haven’t had the patience to make a cup. I just want to stay on my bed all the time.
WordPress changed the way they set up blogs. I don’t like it because you got to write out the tags and categories instead of just clicking on them like before. Pain in the ass. What normally took me 10 minutes to do now takes 20. Sucks. I hate the change. I knew it was going to happen when they had two ways of creating a blog. It was just a matter of time before they gave you the option you didn’t like.
I have therapy tomorrow. This week for appointments aren’t too bad. I have PT and I see my psychiatrist. I can’t wait to see my PT because my shoulder is so bad. I have been trying to decrease the time I spend on my phone but it has been difficult. I was waiting for a book to come yesterday but it won’t be in until next week. I am so bummed. It’s a baseball history book that one of the baseball people I follow on Twitter recommended to me. I think it is what I am looking for in the history of team names and such.
