He is young but very sharp and also understands that telling me to rest won't work. <BR> <BR> He diagnosed my leg pain as an overuse injury and my hi-tops may be the culprit. They may be too motion controlled for lateral movement. He wants me to rest as much as possible and take my meds until I feel better. I can do that, <BR> <BR> Later in the day we took a ride to the Atlantic county Harley Davidson hot rods and ...

We made it through so that was good <BR> <BR> I had my last PT session for my back. I wanted to ask about my leg but realize that they won't diagnose so I did some research. Hope resting and some pain ointments help. I need to check with the doctor for a refill. <BR> <BR> Watching the last Orphan Black of the season.

Thu, 16 Jun 2016 22:44:43 EST Wednesday night...a bit more relaxed http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6183667 The best cure for me when I am sad is being in the presence of friends. Wednesday morning coffee club was in full effect. Lots of laughter and silliness.. <BR> <BR> Ran lots of errands and finally ended up at home. I did get a little rest to make up for the broken sleep from the night before and dinner was easy as I cooked it the night before. <BR> <BR> So I am icing my right leg pain and enjoying the next to the last episode of Person of Interest. <BR> <BR> Just looking for reasons for sm...

But my heart is still aching as I am sure many are. I choose to celebrate the lives of these people that I didn't know and what I learn of them, makes them a part of my world. Little missing pieces that somehow belong to us all. <BR> <BR> No dancing today but time spent with a good friend and a quiet evening at home ended the day well. <BR> <BR> Thank you for your kind words and thoughts.

Too many people showing their true colors. I am blessed to know a lot of kind people. <BR> <BR> My day overall was good.
