Can't swim until ear/eustachian tube dysfunction settles down..

Tuesday, August 26, 2014

I was planning to swim today but called the clinic to see if I need to avoid getting water in my ears. I heard what I didn't want to hear.

I am finding that using my cell phone is uncomfortable and talking is, too, so I am trying to be quiet. Hubby is taking a nap, but when he gets up and starts his usual loud talking, I am sure I will have a problem with that. He is deaf without hearing aids and he turns the t.v. up so loud I will have to leave the room as even without my ear problem I am having now I find it quite unnerving to listen to the volume of 50 when I actually can hear it quite well at 25 unless he starts talking. Guess I need to do something other than watching t.v. this evening.

I took today off from work today but will return to work tomorrow and might have to wear earphones to keep out loud noises.

I was wondering what exciting medical problems would come 'round the bend and here it is. I wish I didn't wonder that so loudly I think someone heard me. LOL

signed up for a $900 series of classes on Resiliance Training

Thursday, August 14, 2014

My insurance will cover except for $90 coinsurance (or co-payment). This program includes 2 hours of 1 on 1 dietician consult, 2 hours with an exercise coach and 10 hours of mindfulness training. I have not received all the info yet but it sounds like it may help me focus on what is important in my life and health.

Will report on progress.

Four day weekend almmost over....

Sunday, August 10, 2014

I spent a lot of time sleeping and resting. Did swim on Thursday and Saturday. On Saturday I actually swam 45 minutes and it wasn't hard. I eventually would like to make it up to 1 hour in the pool and more lengths of the crawl as time goes by. Bought anti chlorine shampoo today and hope to get the build up off my hair.

Weighed in today under 240 again and am keeping better track of food and exercise.

Home today after #18 injection for macular degeneration.

Friday, August 08, 2014

It was nice to sleep in and also went to bed early last night and had a nap after doctor appointment.

My eye is minimally uncomfortable today and hope next month I can get by with less time off for injection. Reintal specialist is going to wait 5 weeks for next injection instead of 4 weeks. She said my left eye with dry macular degeneration is staying the same and the right eye with wet disease is actually getting better.

I hope the 5 week wait for eye injection works for me and eventually I might get up to 8 weeks between injections.

I am so thankful my vision is improving. emoticon

    That would be nice so I will cross my fingers that it goes the way you want.

Schlepped around and didn't swim today...

Wednesday, August 06, 2014

I figured out I can swim after work tomorrow, Thursday between doctor visits or before the 9:00 visit, and then on Saturday. This is the sign of a true procrastinator. Perhaps I like (?) causing stress to myself.

    No, you don't like stress. It just happens when you put things off.
