Had some different weather the past couple of weeks, had snow for the first time, fortunately didn't plant any new flowers before that. Had a feeling snow was on the agenda before spring was over.was in the 80's the week before it fell, today is a beautiful day after much rain this morning, knocked down the pollen, very happy about that!
Finally got myself back in physical therapy as Medicaide gave me the month of April, twice a week and it's getting me back to working hard at recovery again.
Being a semi healthy fella of 45 years, I had a companion over the weekend and to keep it light, I couldn't take care of business,this has never happened and it was my first attempt since stroke 1 1/2 years ago, I felt like I went into a panic attack and that was it for me. I like this gal and have known her since we were teens, just not too sure I'm attracted to her sexually which might be some of the problem,or I can blame it on medication! Guess I need to talk to my doc and see what we got g
Have found some people that are nice but aren;t who they claim to be. Anyway I'm getting good sleep which is more important than finding a activity pal! Now that I feel more active no pal:) Spent alot of years scouring the bar scene and met most of my female pals that way, now my social life is pretty much the Moose lodge, not a place to find a mate! But alot of friends there and it's close to home. Gotta have something to look forward to at the end of the week
Got my regular botox injecti
Finally got the answer to my constant tiredness 3 weeks ago during a sleep study,severe apnea.The answer was a CPAP, machine to keep the throat open during sleep, no more snoring and stopping of the breathiing,much more restful sleep and a new attitude in the morning,what had become a very depressing everyday ritual of no energy during the day has been solved, yippy,feeling so good got out found me a new gal and things are looking gooder for the first time in quite a while:) More botox in a week
Looks like 3 days of wind and rain headed my way here in Virginia. as long as it doesn't mess with the Yankees playoffs games, and doesn't cancel the Giants,Redskins(yikes) game or the Nascar race I'll be fine this weekend!
went to my regular doc the other day and had a good report,BP really good and cholesteral dropped a bit.Wants me to do a sleep study to see if I have apnea causing me to be tired all the time,hope I don't have that! Then off to a new ortho pedic doc for cortisone for my le
Feels like mountain weather,my favorite kinda day,seems to make me more upbeat for the day! Cold front went thru last night with a little needed rain for my flowers,temps low 60's so I see yardwork on the agenda this morning, lots of oak branches from past winds to cut up and get in trash cans, good therapy holding and clipping , remember when I couldn't use both hands at the same time or I'd drop whatever I had in my affected hand! Still happens occasionally but the more I do it the better it g
We've gone from drought to flooding here in Williamsburg,va. Flood seems to be localized in my poorly drained backyard,my rental neighbors decided to build a shed in the drainage ditch below my property and the city says tough, I say what about my yard and all the mosquitos after heavy rain? Ernesto dumped 8 inches of rain and threw some 40 mph winds at us.Thank goodness it wasn't a hurricane! After a week of record breaking heat it certainly was nice to wake up with 59 degree temps outside at 4
Been alot of bad and good since my last post. I had to have my dear friend Buck(german shepherd) put to sleep last Friday,hardest decision I've ever made in my life! He was 16 and was having trouble and needed help:(
The good part of the past week is I went to my aunts house 50 miles from here,drove by myself and went swimming in her pool which I didn't think I'd be able to accomplish.Practically grew up in a pool and was pleasantly surprised to be able to swim!So far the best rehab and exer
I'm Bill from williamsburg.va. I'm a few days past one year post stroke. I'm 45 years old and disabled.Never thought I'd say that!Bbut there are pluses. When I had my stroke I was told I'd never be able to live alone again.oh yea?I didn't lisen very good apparently, Alot of hard work and lifestyle change and I'm home with my 2 doggies!My gripe is always being tired,I blame the huge amount of pills I have to take, I walka few times a day and that provides no perk,neither does my half caffiene cof
