Rest

I’ve been quiet on this space thanks to a hydrops flareup last week. The past week has involved lots of pillows to help prop my head up at a comfortable angle and has meant that my computer time has been precious. Things are better than last week, but it’s been slow progress.

Long month

Well, I’ve titled this post Long month which is a fitting follow-up to my previous post at the beginning of the month titled Long day. The nasty cold and cough I mentioned then continued to get worse and about halfway through the month it turned into bronchitis, so I gave up and got antibiotics. I…

A quiet week

I’ve been pretty quiet as I’ve been dealing with hydrops this past week. It is discouraging, but it could be so much worse. My highlight of the week was going to the rodeo. It was a good distraction and was nice to get out of the house! Last Wednesday was also the first Functional Neurology…

Turbulance

I haven’t posted about my balance in much detail for a while. No news is good news, as they say. For the most part everything has been fairly ho-hum. I’ve cut back my appointments to the Functional Neurologist to twice a month. I tried going to once a month, but that was way too long.…

Sickness struck

Sorry I’ve been MIA around here. I’ve been dealing with some wierd nausea flu bug that’s slowing me down. Praying that it doesn’t come around tomorrow as I have a final and papers to write! I’m not quite sure how it’s all going to happen. Praying that it does.

Eyes working, essay posted

Today was fairly slow paced. Mostly me just working on school at a slug’s pace this afternoon, trying to ignore the gorgeous weather outside.  I did attempt to get to my evening class early to go over my homework with the teacher and then eat my dinner afterwards. Well, errands took longer than I expected…

Gardening, a slow re-introduction 

One of my goals the past month or so was to try to spend a little time outside each day gardening. While most days I fail in getting outside as Homework! Dinner! Cleaning! all yell with more urgent voices, I have managed to slowly mulch almost all of the flower beds around the house. Most…

Benefits of listening to your body

Last week, I talked about how to listen to your body, which perhaps was a rather backwards way to go about it, as maybe I should have first talked about the benefits of listening to your body. Here are just a few reasons to fine tune the skill of listening to your body. Track minuscule…

Listening to your body

I realized on Monday that I forgot all about Weekend Links and Updates. The past two weeks have been crazy, and last weekend was the craziest. I think my brain was so exhausted by Sunday that it went into survival mode. I’m sad I missed it, as I had lots to share, but next weekend I’ll be…
