Well my physio was this afternoon and I spent 30 minutes walking there, 30 minutes waiting for them to call me because they were running late, 30 minute having them work on my shoulder doing some heat and ice treatments, exercises and ultra sound on it. It turns out that I have a lot of scare tissue where my injuries is and that is the reason for me to be in so much pain.
I was also told not to wear a bra or any type of top with thin straps on it because the straps are digging into my shoulder where the damages in. I am also told to move my shoulders is small movements. No lifting at all, no heavy workouts or housework.
Before I left to walk back home the armed me with literature and exercises to do for the next 4 to 6 weeks because they know I won't be coming back at $40.00 a session. My claim will not be reopened. They are saying this is a new injury, so a new report goes it.
So now that I have all the stuff needed I will do my own physio at home 3 to 5 times a week. I can get my brother and BF to help me as I do them. Making sure my form is correct and I have someone there supporting me.
So walking home took me about 40 minutes. I had to stop and do some window shopping and stop to get a coffee at Tim's. I was good though I didn't buy a donut, just the coffee.
Home to make a salad with baked ham, fresh mushrooms, low fat cottage cheese and water. Man o man was that ever good and filling.
That was over 3 hours ago and I am still full and this is normally the time that I have a 100 calorie snack cause I am hungry. Well not tonight.
I will just have my last glass of water before I go and have a hot bubble bath and then to bed.
I even manage to do 2 hours of hand sewing my mom's sweater and that didn't even hurt my shoulder at all.
I still have the sleeves to set in and sew and finish the collar, then I can give it to my mom. Who by the way keeps asking me when she's going to get it and why isn't it finished yet. I just laugh and remind her of my shoulder and that I am working on it as much as I can.
So I will leave you all tonight and a good note. I got a new prescription again for sleeping pills, actually the doctor gave a couple pack of samples to try. Saving me some money. I will take them after my bath. LOL!
Can't wait to get in at least 7 or 8 or even more hours of sleep. Last night I got in 3 short hours. Still having bad dreams due to stress and being in pain.
Have a wonderful night my friends.
Hopefully soon I can share some more pictures.
