What I intended on doing today (
anyone else automatically hear ‘the road to hell is paved with good intentions’ in a sing-songy voice when they hear the word intended? Just me? 😉) was to post an award response to a recent blog nomination. However, after a good bit of time on the phone with the health insurance company ( I know, fun), trying to figure out just where in the middle of ‘he said, she said’ my wheelchair prescription is being held up, I’m totally tuckered out. If you’re a regular around here, you know I have a wheelchair, but what I don’t talk about is how much it hurts my neck. So, I’m trying to get one that’s maybe fitted to me. I have no idea how it works, but eventually I’m hoping to have less pain in my neck from using the chair to go to things, like doctors’ appointments.
Just in case you think I’m being a wimp, this isn’t like an ouch pain, it’s like a nerve ending, pressure behind the eyes and in the head in general, brain zap pain. If you’ve been through this and have figured out how to fix it, I’d love to hear how! I do have a memory foam seat cushion I sit on, and it does help, but not enough. And in full disclosure this is a pain that I get from sitting incorrectly, trying to lift anything, or reach for things. It’s a pain I live with pretty regularly but the wheelchair sends it through the roof. I’ll let you know, if I’m able to get a new chair, and how or if it helps, just in case you too are having the same issue.
Last week I had a lovely birthday and now post exertional malaise is having its way with me. PEM was not invited to my birthday, and yet it just sauntered in like it owned the place…how rude! 😉 It’ll pass. For now, I’m trying to be gentle with myself, and still adult, and that my friends is the MECFS struggle of the day. With that I must go and conserve what energy is left for today. Thank you for stopping in! I appreciate it!! Next week, I’m catching up with blog awards, which I’ve been meaning to do since June, but I really
pinky swear mean it this time!!
Hoping your day is as kind to you as possible. 🌸
