No Torture At PT - Praise God!

PRAISE GOD!!!!!!!!!!!!  PT was not torture yesterday.  I am so thankful for the pain medication Dr. Modlinski gave me for therapy.  I still felt some pain, but it was SOOOOOOO much easier.  Brian was able to do what he needed to without me fighting him.  I was also not so emotionally drained either.  I am feeling some muscle soreness today, which is to be expected.  Thank you God!

Set up my appointment with Dr. Robertson this morning.  I will see him on April 21.  I am so thankful  for only having to wait 1.5 weeks to get in.  Specialist often take much longer for a new patient appt. 

I did not share my story for a long time.  I really thought I was dealing with whiplash symptoms from the wreck - I did not want to seem like a wimp.  I was trying to go on with my life, in pain, without complaining (except to my family and a few teacher friends).  Now I have found out I have something unique (I like that word better than rare).  There is very little out there from patients who are going through this.  I completely understand. There are not many of us out there. TOS wears you out.  Therapy hurts and makes you even more tired.  Pain meds help with the pain, but mess with your sleeping patterns (that is why I was up at 3 a.m. this morning).  Using a mouse or finger pad makes weak muscles very tired if you use them too much.  Typing too long makes the nerve pain worse.  God is teaching me that I can share for His Glory what is going on.  I may have to do it a little at a time, but I can do it.  It all comes back to slowing down, and this time I am listening to Him.  It is like this post today, I have typed for a few minutes - now I will rest, drink a cup of coffee, and spend some quiet time with the Lord.  Nothing better than that!  Then God will help me through whatever today holds. 

Blessing to you all!
