Update


I like to keep you bloggers updated with my concussion status, as many of you are becoming personal friends to me.  The symptoms of my concussion are getting much better.  Headaches and nausea are still coming on at about 3:00 every day.  So, I can almost make it through a full day of work!  Yesterday, I went to the chiropractor because I haven’t been able to move my left shoulder much since the fall.  Well, it was out of place.  One LOUD crack and it was back in.  I have to keep heating it and refrain from exercise that moves it too much, as well as stretching it until she gives me the okay.  I also have to go back to her weekly until she knows the shoulder is healed.  Basically, she told me I was a hot mess from the fall and it would take me awhile to get back to normal health.  She asked me how I was even breathing without being in pain.  I just had to laugh at that because sometimes even that was painful!

I go to the psychiatrist tomorrow to get my medication for depression/anxiety/insomnia evaluated.  I am praying I will not have to undergo a med change.  The last time I did that I had HORRIBLE side effects.  I do NOT want to go back into that weepy state.

In other news….I realized that next month will be a year since my father passed away (can’t believe it’s already been a year without him).  I look at March 31st on my planner like it is doomsday.  A sense of dread automatically fills me as my stomach drops.  Yesterday, I almost looked up tickets to a tropical place for that week because I know I will be triggered hard core.  Since his funeral was a few days after Easter, Easter will trigger me too.  I may have to escape here and travel somewhere.  Just to get away and process.  We shall see.

  1. Concussion???? What did I miss?!??! I’ve been away for a few days; I’m so sorry this happened. I’m glad it’s getting better though.

    Having lost a loved one, myself, there is something about the “date” that sticks to you like glue. It’s something that you’ll never forget, but the only thing that is possible is to realize that date is something else other than just a date of misery – it’s a date of fully realizing how much you love someone too.

    I’d give you a big hug, if I could. 🙂

    1. Yes, I fell down two steps and hit my head on the sidewalk. Had a concussion and had to stay home for a week. Now my body is all out of whack.

      I like your way of looking at the dates. I may have to take that perspective! Thank you! ❤
