I have achieved what I thought was impossible at this time. I have actively sat in a chair for almost 3 hours (a couple short breaks) and my back is not hurting. Miracle of miracles. Physical Therapy has helped some, but the real credit has to go to Flexeril. But truly, I do not care how I am sitting without pain, I just want to let the world know that I can now sit without pain. Happy Hectic.
I ran a high fever on Thursday, the day I was supposed to go to mental therapy. Almost high enough to contact my cancer doc and probably be admitted to the hospital. Luckily over a lot of hours, 6 Tylenol got rid of the fever. But I did not make it to therapy obviously. We rescheduled for this Wednesday at 11am. I don’t normally make morning appointments cuz I take a Flexeril in the morning and it normally knocks me out til after noon. I am testing it today, I did not take a Flexeril this morning, gonna try not to take one until noon and then take a Flexeril nap. So far so good, I am awake and functional.
I am thinking of buying a record player from amazon. I have all these records and nothing to play them on. The player I found does mp3s, cds, Bluetooth, etc… as well as plays records. The thing is, its 120 bucks and we are supposed to be saving. I have amazon gift card money saved up though, it has no other use as of now. I guess I will have to run it by Teresa.
My mother and brother are at the Feast of the Hunter’s Moon in Lafayette, Indiana. Wish I was there too. I haven’t been for many years, but memories of it still stand in my head. It was fun when I was a kid. Now that I am older, it would probably be a different kind of fun. Oh well, I how Jim and Mom have a good time. Maybe next year I will find a way to go with you guys.
D&D games won’t be resuming next week as I had hoped. Got too much going on next week. The week after looks much more mellow. Besides, I need some time to changed up what I was going to do in both the high level and low level games. Still wish someone else would run a game I could be a player in, either online or in person. But online everyone seems to want to use roll20 which I do not care for. And in person is being really difficult to find. I have to get down to Mayhem on a Wednesday night to see if any groups have an opening on a day or night that I have free.
It really sounds like we will be going to Disneyworld next February or so. I priced out Disneyworld and Disneyland. For EXACTLY the same trip, just the different destinations, World was like 1000 dollars cheaper. Airfare being the HUGE difference. Flying out of Des Moines is expensive. And flying to Ontario, CA from Des Moines cost over double the price of flying from Des Moines to Orlando. We could fly into LA and rent a car and drive to Anaheim, but that would be more expensive too.
Heh, my shrink put me on 2 clonazepam a day 6 months or so ago. I can physically only take one a day if I want to be awake at all. I haven’t seen my shrink in all that time to tell him to cut the prescription down to 1, so we have a ton of extra klonnies. Guess I will save them for if I get a real bad run of insomnia again.
This year I am not certain if I am going to do the Light the Night walk for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. I know I am not collecting funds for it. But I am not sure I want to go walk it again this year. They moved it later in the year cuz last year was ridiculously hot. That is a good thing. Right now, I just don’t feel up to it. I am gonna get my free t-shirt though, the one that says SURVIVOR on the back. I will contact the local LLS chapter and arrange to pick one up before the event. They are cool people, they’ll let me.
OK, at 3 1/2 hours of sitting, I have a small little pain spot on my back. Not even really pain, just a little ache to remind me that my back is messed up. This spot is located right at the trigger point that started this whole mess with my back.
I think YouTube has every video (well except the NSFW ones) ever recorded on it. I just looked up The Fools, World Dance Party. And I’ll be damned if someone hadn’t uploaded it. Anyhow, I enjoyed it, so now you can too.
