I feel much better this afternoon and evening. I got into my swimsuit at the gym, showered and made a beeline for the pool which felt great. I stayed in doing exercises and swimming for a full 30 minutes and am so glad. Afterwards I whirlpooled for about 15 minutes and did 10 minutes of exercises in the whirlpool.
Both activities help loosen me up and I got over my aversion to swimming (I actually think I made the right decision not going for the previous 3-4 days as I had spasms in neck and back.) After I shopped and walked around the stores and parking lots for a full hour I went home with my purchases and just as I walked in the front door my right ankle became quite painful and I hobbled around for awhile until I was able to put weight on it without the severe pain I got as I walked through the door. I think I bent the foot and leaned on it with bad form as I was trying to unhook the device that held the door open as hubby brought in groceries.
I just wish I didn't have so many things hurting.... and otherwise causing concern (I had trouble reading the road signs as I drove home from the store, also)....I am not a multitasker and I am feeling a bit of overload today.
I hope this coming week things settle down and I hope I can continue my regular swimming sessions. I definitely am going back to work tomorrow but will call the eye doctor first (of any doctors I want to see) as I just got my first pair of driving glasses about a year ago and they did send a reminder to get another checkup as I have the beginnings of cataracts and macular degeneration (both at a level of 1 out of 10). I am scheduled for a check up regarding my CPAP machine and I think I will ask to try the nose prong type of ventilation as I am afraid I am getting air blown in my eyes at night because I move around a lot at night and the mask leaks mostly around the top near my eyes. (I sure sound like a worry wart, or perhaps a hypochondriac but I want to keep on top of these things so I don't end up with more serious problems than I am having at present.)
