I know this is long, but if you have a chance to watch it, please do. It just might help someone. As I watched, I could not get over all of the the similarities between her story and mine. I laughed when she said “Why not me” because that is what I say too. Awareness, awareness, awareness. I can’t say it enough.

I know, I know, I am late…My excuse is I have been in Georgia, got home yesterday, and had enough energy left to watch the Modern Family finale, and pass out on the couch. After a full night’s sleep, I am moving slow, but back in action.
1. Medical Stuff:
- 1 day of PT
- 2 Days of Home Rehab
- Monthly appointment with Larry.
- Was given a prescription for waist high compression stockings.
I had my monthly Larry appointment today. At my April appointment, Larry graded my Apollo 13 homework assignment he had given me after I spent my March appointment with him in serious meltdown mode tears about life in general. After I received my A++, Larry gave me another assignment, which was due today. My assignment was to show some kind of scale that represented things I COULD do on a 0%, 25%, 50%, 75%, and 100% energy day.
This assignment was meant to help me reframe my thoughts. So instead of getting upset and saying something like, “Oh my goodness, it’s a 25% energy day and I can’t dust the house,” I could instead look at it as, “It may be a 25% energy day but I CAN do a load of laundry, some floor exercises, and post on my blog.”
