Home Again

Thursday, June 14, 2012

Well, I didn't go to work this morning. I really wanted to but I can't look over my left shoulder. I don't want to drive if I can't see right. All I need is to wreck the rental. Change my name to "Ford Killer" (our rental is a fiesta).

I had 3 walks yesterday and I real think it helped my legs. I'm still extremely sore where they came up into the dash but I'm moving ok. I am hoping I can get hubby to walk with me. I want to do a few miles today.

My neck, upper back, shoulders, and eyes are still hurting. I'm going to try stretching out the muscles today. I'm hoping it will help. I'm also going to try sitting on my exercise ball. The couch makes my back worst and I'm afraid my a$$ is becoming one with the floor.

I won't do any ST until the pain is gone. Nothing more than walking and stretching. Hopefully that will help. I hate feeling helpless/useless. I have to understand the whole accident thing and the need for recovery. I don't have to like it.

Well, I'm going to go watch the Thing snack on some Norwegians and then maybe John Carpenter's classic. I might as well have fun as I turn to lime jello!

If I have anything to report, I'll post later.

    I'm glad you're taking it slow! You'll be back at it a million miles an hour in no time. For now, try to enjoy the lime jello brain.

    You are one smart Kitty. Good for you for taking care of yourself! So what's the deal with your eyes? Are they going to improve? I understand you got the chemicals from the airbags in there, but how long does it take for your eyes to recover?

    Hope you are less sore today! emoticon

    Whenever I'm sore, walking and stretching seems to help me feel better. I hope that's how it works for you too, Kitty. You deserve a break.

    Feel better.

    Glad you are taking it slow and letting your body heal.

    BTW, I usually have TNT channel on during the day. Reruns of Supernatural, Charmed, the Closer, etc. emoticon

    Take it as you can, even if you can't like the process.

    Hang in there Kitty and glad that you're listening to your body. Don't worry, you'll be right as rain before your a@@ becomes one with the floor.

    Day time TV is successfully turning my brain into JELLO!

    I'm really glad to read that you decided not to drive and go into work. Give it time even though I know it is very hard to do.

    Yes, please continue to listen to your body and try to not over do it! You will not turn to any flavor of Jello that quickly, so rest and recover! You had that bod of yours strengthened and toned and it will stay that way as you heal! Be good to yourself!

    Yep. It really jolts the neck when you're in a collision. That's the thing you have to be most careful about the first few days. Try getting some Arnica gel for the bruises. It helps a little with the pain and helps the bruises clear up faster. Walking probably is good as long as some one is with you the next day or two, then it's just dealing with the soreness.

    Meanwhile, the Horror movie marathon sounds good. Think I'll go make some lime jello now. You just reminded me we had some!

    *gentle hugs* I know it's hard to take it easy when you want to be active, but I'm proud of you for listening to your body! Take care sis.
