I had fully intended to write a short piece and participate in MindLoveMisery’s Sunday writing prompt last week. The subject “The Quiet One” intrigued me and I may still write something – it just will not be part of the challenge.
I had my physical almost three weeks ago but had to wait a week to come back for my blood work. I told my doctor I wanted a referral to a physical therapist for my vertigo as nothing was keeping it at bay. He agreed. He suggested some medication for me for another issue, but in the interim I researched and decided the medication might not be the right thing for me so I shelved it until I could go back and talk it through with him.
A week went by without hearing about my referrals (there were three). I called the office to check on the status. It seems they are still sending faxes and the fax appeared to have gone through. After calling again, the referrals were finally in progress and I had two physical therapy sessions last week. I am happy to say I am much improved and cannot believe how quickly it has helped. Even once the vertigo is gone, She will continue to see me because I have altered my posture as a way to protect myself from the vertigo. It will take time to unlearn all that.
All in all, I am pretty healthy. my doctor agreed about the medication and I have some small dietary changes to make, but no medication for which I am thankful. Now to get all my vaccinations taken care of.
It has been terribly hot here – at least for my liking. With the constant vertigo I have not been able to write or watch much television and as a result I have been pretty restless. Our garden is producing tomatoes and peppers, but not much else. We have been enjoying what we do manage to harvest, though.
We are supposed to be going to Florida the end of this week for our granddaughter’s 4th birthday! Of course hubby got called for jury duty – he reports tomorrow – and so much depends on his schedule and how I am progressing with my vertigo and physical therapy.
I am reading a few blogs in moderation and hope to start leaving a few comments. My Physical Therapist has advised against too much screen time so I am heeding her advice.
Hubby is now waiting on the electrician to come and install the electrical panel in the building. Schedules, material, and waiting make this drag out a lot longer than we would like.
The dogwood leaves are changing. They are the heralds of the change in season to come. Of course, we will need to get through the hot months of summer, but nature tells us what is coming. I tried to plant some dill, it it is just way too hot. The dill wilted and died quickly. I will replant in the fall.
That’s it for now. I hope this finds you all well and keeping safe. It is a crazy world we live in.
