First of all, I really really want to say from the bottom of my heart, how much I appreciate all of your beautiful well wishes, messages and words of encouragement and strength...they really have made it so much easier to bear this incredibly miserable journey, these past 8 weeks!!!
Thank you all so much!!!
Honestly and openly...I will never take my bed for granted ever again LOL, I miss it so much
8 weeks and counting since I've actually gotten to lay down, but I am gaining hope a little each day, thankfully! I went for physio therapy yesterday for the first time, because I was in so much pain I wasn't able too before, and for the fact, I couldn't drive there either. Anyway, it went well although I was scared I might set myself backwards but no, it went well! I'm a bit sore today, but managed to sleep well in the chair
More therapy next week
Hey, if anybody wants a great tip if they have neck problems and cannot lie down, but can only sleep sitting up...I got a neck brace from the doctor quite early on but I wasn't able to use it because it pressed on the nerve, and made things worse! HOWEVER, Jim bought me one of those travel pillows you put around your neck in the plane and although I couldn't use it at the back of my neck, I put it in the front of my neck and it sits on my shoulders. It stabilises my neck from dropping to each side, as it often does when you're sleeping sitting up...and its been a godsend!! I also use a pillow shaped like a boomerang and rest my arms on it, which in turn relaxes my shoulders...great idea Jim, thanks hon!! xoxo
Anyway, enough of me...I hope you guys are all doing well, although I know some of you that have been keeping in contact with me have been going through some things too
and I want to send all my HUGS
