Hi and welcome back to me!
i am sooo sorry. It’s been such a busy time. Summer is quickly coming to an end and I am trying to get a lot of things done with my daughter before she goes back to school.
First I will tell you about some exciting news! on Day 76, I went to the beach with my daughter. It has been almost 3 years since I last went swimming in the cold pacific ocean. The water temperature would send my CRPS arm into spasms and pain! Well Saturday was an unusually HOT day in California. about 97 degrees & I didnt bring an umbrella. Anyway, it got very warm, so I decided I would do my best to keep my arm out of the water and get wet to cool off. Well, I fell into the water and got my arm wet. Cringing, and waiting for the inevitable pain… that NEVER came… I was SHOCKED!! I ended up swimming and playing in the waves with my daughter and her 2 friends for about 30-40 minutes until a very large wave tumbled me and I hit my head. Still no PAIN!
Ok… just realized the time. I will try to finish these last 2 weeks later tonight!
Let me try to get you all caught up.
Not only did I swim in the cold waters of the Pacific Ocean, but I also have been spending time in our pool. Something I haven’t done without an insane amount of pain since I broke my arm (& developed CRPS). I still can’t wrap my head around it. It doesnt make any sense to me that a “Brain Health Supplement” has given more more than I ever believed possible.
I also had a Girls Day Out… with a limo ride, mani/pedi (without pain) and laughter at a bar. I dont … rather I didnt get to do this very much. Before CRPS I spent every other Friday Country Dancing at a place called the Ranch in Anaheim. After… I just couldn’t stand anyone touching my arm. It took everything I had to keep tears from streaming down my face from someone brushing by me, let alone grabbing my arm or hitting me on the dance floor. I think I should try to do it again. I have a hankering! LOL
Most importantly is waking up in the morning isn’t such a struggle, nor is falling asleep at night. I used to toss and turn as I couldn’t find a way to fall asleep without my arm burning, freezing or having pins and needles. I tossed and turned until I could no longer fight it and finally passed out. Usually about 2:30-3:00 a.m. Now I am in bed by 10 and asleep by 11. No tossing, or turning. Just a few minutes to find that comfortable position and … lights out! I sleep so soundly. Its wonderful. I wake about 6, just before my alarm goes off and feel refreshed! No need to stumble to the kitchen for coffee or drive through Starbucks on my way to work. Don’t get me wrong I still LOVE COFFEE… it’s just a treat now instead of a necessity.
I wish I could send each and every one of you a sample so you could see for yourself what EHT can do.
