In Light of Recent Events – http://wp.me/pl6bP-1KW
This is a really well-written, intelligent, compassionate, and sensible post about the recent Supreme Court decisions. Well worth the read. You don’t have to be religious (I’m not) to appreciate what he says.
On the health side, went to physical therapy. The warm-up guy was ready for me not to be able to do everything, and set things up for me that I could do. I had not mentioned anything to him last week, so I was surprised and pleased. The woman who sees me through the machines had adjusted things slightly to decrease the odds of me having a bad pain reaction like last week, and even had me skip a machine that I had some difficulties with last week. I was still very tired after, unlike last week, and having some pain already. The only reason they even knew I’d had the pain was because I had to cancel Thursday’s session. I cancelled the next two Thursday sessions today, just in case I have the same pain reaction.
It occurs to me that I am not actually recovered from last week, and made me wonder about the cumulative effect of not being recovered each week. Will it get to the point I can’t do this because of the overlap just making me worse and worse. Not explaining this as well as I’d like.
I’m really glad I was able to go, though. Commitments are always iffy til practically the last minute. I’ve showered, dressed, put on my coat and got my keys, put my hand on the doorknob and realized I had to go back to bed right that minute or collapse. So no guarantees I’ll ever show up for anything. I was also really impressed that the staff noticed and took steps to help with my issues. That doesn’t always happen. It was another good day, and positive reinforcement that I actually can do some things and work towards getting some small semblance of my old life back. Hooray!
