Not A Bad Night.
Not a bad night slept until early morning, when I woke up suddenly feeling all the pain again, as soon as I was conscious called out to Richie for some THC.
It worked well and I drifted back off to sleep again waking 3 hours later feeling better for the extra sleep.
Immediately felt all my pain again so Richie got me THC after two lots of THC vapour the pain started to recede into the background.
My pain is not gone, just manageable, the THC helps me to relax, these days I no longer get high like I used to, seems the THC just goes to alleviating my pain.
Yesterday there had not been enough time after my shower to do my leg exercises before my physiotherapist got here so Richie put me back to bed.
After the session noticed my legs were going mad, one horrible spasm after the other with hardly a let up, wondered if it was the effects of the hot sticky weather.
Later on Richie hoisted me into the shower chair and placed me in front of the Motomed, strapped my legs in and I did 40 minutes of leg exercises.
Four lots of 10 minutes after that got put back to bed and did not have other leg spasms, which was good.
Had got quite concerned as my spasms were very powerful, banging against the table over my bed and making my laptop move.
Every spasm got me holding onto the laptop scared it would fall off the table, really glad the Motomed stopped them.
Glad we got the Motomed it is invaluable for me, it was quite expensive but well worth every penny as I use it every day.
Wonder what today will be like hope pleasant despite feeling very floppy and having limited hand function.
Oh well could be worse, glad it is not, yesterday clarified for me once again, that living in the moment was the best way for me.
Have now totally stopped predicting and worrying about what if, doing this makes life much easier and more pleasant for my darling Richie and I.
