Well, today I had quite an intense 2 hours of therapy. My old therapist was back from working at the hospital an she totally figured out why one day I could walk and the next day I couldn't. I have a pinched nerve in my neck, which explains why when I look up I get violently dizzy. Now we just have to figure out what to do about it. I refuse to go to a chriropractor. One caused my friend's strokes and hubby has seen to many lives messed up by them. I get violently ill whenever someone even touches my neck. It is a response that I can't control. I am going to try a new pillow and hubby is going to try to work on my neck after I take my sleeping medicine. It is both a relief to know why I can't walk but also somewhat scary because they think that is where the strokes started. It is also kind of frustrating to know why but not be able to fix it. I still have to use my wheelchair. But, it is relieving to know that it isn't phycological. My legs from the knee down just won't work at all.
On an up note, I made my own cup of tea this afternoon. I always have a cup of green tea in the afternoon, and my daughter usually makes it, but she was in the garage cleaning out the car so I decided to try. This is a big thing because it involves hot liquid and my hand is so unsteady. I still had to use a special cup that hubby found, but I was able to make it for myself. That is the first time since my strokes on April 15 (another reason to hate that day). It may be a simple cup of tea, but it sure was good.
