I am happy that things continue to keep on improving, in my health. I think the progress might seem just a little and very slow in coming, but the truth is that things are improving tremendously, considering how sick I was and how much it was effecting my mobility, my pain levels, and my ability to be actively involved in my life. I haven’t used any pain meds in over a month, though I really think it is okay to use them, but I just haven’t been. I think that I will talk to my doctor about it in the next month or two, but I would then have to go to a pain management place. As a matter of fact I will have to do that before August if I want to get on the list for the stronger marijuana oil use for chronic pain, as that is the soonest that my state is going to allow it’s use.
The great progress news is:
I don’t use my cane in my apartment anymore. I don’t have to use it to get out of bed! When I go over to a relative’s house, I don’t have to use my cane in their homes either. I even have one instance of walking down two flights of stairs and down two hallways and back upstairs, about 550 steps, without using my cane. This is huge, cause I haven’t done that in over 18 months. Still, most of the time I do use my cane in the hallways and when going out, but I have started to not use it for a few steps at a time, and that too is huge for me. I have been doing a lot of exercises for my legs and my core and my stomach muscles while laying down and that is going great. I have started walking around my apartment building more and that is going good as well.
I am very much looking forward to spring. 🙂
Good and healing thoughts to you all.
