Beginning To Feel Human Again!


The past two weeks have been uncomfortable, to say the least.  I think the coughing and stuffy/runny nose have bothered me more than anything else.   I am also finding I have interest in what’s going on around me again; before now all I was noticing was what part of me was being more uncomfortable that day.  I am also very grateful and thankful for my wonderful husband because he has done everything while I have been miserable.  Unfortunately, I gave him part of my stuff, so he is uncomfortable as well.  But he soldiers on and doesn’t give the stuff much space if he can help it.

I am so tired of coughing, not sleeping very well at night.  I went to see my acupuncturist on Thursday for treatment, I have another appointment today.  Cindy has help me tame the cough a couple of times before and I decided not to wait 4 to 6 weeks before going to see her.  I may have to go Tuesday and possibly Thursday – we’ll see what develops.

Eddie and I are sleeping in different rooms because we don’t want to keep passing this stuff back and forth.  I have been sleeping somewhat propped up, seems to make things more comfortable.  Since I don’t have Eddie with me, Bunny has been sleeping with me – it almost feels like rehab again.

 I spent a lot of time cooped up in the house and finding how little energy I had.  This last week has been better, though halfway through Breakfast Club I had John take over – I could only cough when I wanted to say something.  I came straight home afterwards.

I have had two adjustments with Dr. Cheryl – she barely has a voice and is conserving it as much as possible – she lost her voice for 6 weeks once and has no interest in doing it again.  I have been feeling better with adjustments and now the acupuncture, I hope it won’t be too long before I am feeling back to “normal” – what ever normal is for me.

I noticed Wednesday when I came home from Breakfast Club, I started researching for a new client – I haven’t had any interest in anything lately.  It felt good to work on it for a bit.  Thursday I had a call from a new client and all the while I was sick, I was doing an order by 3 way email.  Thankfully the orders are in and I think they will make it on time.

Friday I went to see Mom; the last time was 2 weeks ago when Eddie came back from Toronto.  I have been concerned about giving her the stuff, I also didn’t want her to think I had abandoned her.  I brought her chocolates and cookies, the chocolates are from Ellen.  She was quite pleased with both and she was also glad to see me.

They have been having her sit in a recliner to make sure her feet are up to help with the swelling.  Judy says if she is in the wheelchair all the time, she will forget how to walk, so they switch with the walker and wheelchair so she will still be somewhat mobile.  She fights standing up for the walker, but it is important to have her walk as long as possible.

I read some more of the D.E. Stevenson book to her – Fern was also at the table and she said she enjoyed hearing me read.  As soon as we finish this book, I will start Candy’s new book  “Finding Serenity In Seasons of Stress”.  Mom enjoyed hearing Candy’s other book “The Translucent Heart” and knowing this new one is Candy’s book will make even more special.

We have been having a lot of wind and rain the past few days, couple of mornings we had heavy frost.  Otherwise it has been in the 40’s during the day and high 30’s at night.  I know so many parts of the country have been in the deep freeze and are now reaching the 40’s and 50’s – heat wave.  I remember ice storms, snow storms, humidity and heat, hurricane warnings, thunder and lightning storms – I am glad I experienced it but very happy to live here where it is fairly mild.  Good things I enjoy rain!

As my attention span and energy come back, I will be writing again – boy, do I miss it!

    I’m glad to hear you are starting to come out of this. Some days, though, it does seem like two steps forward and one back, doesn’t it?! I think my cold/sinus thing is close to done, too, but the other night I took a bad spill, which has not helped much! Have some very colorful bruises now, but the worst was, I think I gave myself a minor concussion, so I’ve been really being careful since then.

      Thank You for your comment – it is still a bit of up and down but I hope the acupuncture will help the cough. I’m tired of coughing and I am sure Eddie is sick of hearing me. Maybe now we can possibly start planning for an outing soon.
