I don't know how it can possibly be 10pm already. It was 4pm just a few seconds ago. Time flies, I know, but this is ridiculous. So today has been busy.
I went to meet the physiotherapist this morning, and that went well. I have a series of exercises to do and will be going to work in their gym, with the physiotherapist, twice a week. Hopefully there will be a real improvement soon. She explained that the nerves in my leg are "on red alert" all the time. ALL the time. And they need to be bamboozled. So I have to use different textured things - say my hand, then cotton wool, then a towel, then a soft brush, and massage the leg now and then. It sounds weird, but I sat there and massaged my leg, and it felt ok, and then 2 minutes later, it felt as though it was on fire. Unbelievable. I could almost hear the nerves thinking - "what was that then? I don't know - PAIN". There is always a delay then the pain kicks in, so the trick is to try to fool the nerves. Hmmm. I wonder who will win this battle then. This is war, people.
Anyway, today has been a mix of friends popping in, grocery shopping, getting the school laptop cleared and ready to hand back tomorrow..... did I mention that my boss is coming to "discuss the medical report" with me tomorrow? I think, no, I am sure I know what is coming, so I am prepared. Cooking supper, making calls and answering emails and the telephone, and suddenly it is 10pm. Chatting on IM and trying to think of how to tidy this house before 2.30pm tomorrow.
I need to topple into bed soon. So, my friends, I am going to leave you all in peace for now and give the brain a rest for a while. Good grief - it just occurred to me. I do not even have control of my own nerves. It is as though I have been invaded by an alien being. That is not an option. I do not do alien encounters. I want my own nerves back where they should be, listening to me. Sigh. I am a mother. I should be used to not being listened to. But my own NERVES?????? That is ridiculous.
So I started on a ridiculous note. And I end on a ridiculous note.
Night Night all.........
