Okay, I am the first to admit that I knew pretty much nothing about severe to minor head injuries before I started trying to read up on it the last week or so. From what I have been reading, I don’t think really anyone knows that much about them either. I think that each and every person that has an brain injury has their own issues that the medical society can probably only scratch the surface of.
I am not getting better. Worse is more like it. I have slept over 4 hours two nights straight now, but after I wake, I am pretty pitiful and it takes a hour or two to just get bearable. And that doesn’t really even happen.
I have an eye doctors appointment this afternoon. Then an appointment with a neurosurgeon tomorrow. Neither of those appointments are going to help me currently. Maybe down the road, but not now. Not unless I get a new prescription to another medicine that might help me with severe headaches. I’ve been lucky throughout my life, of not having headache issues. Now I’m on a new level, which I can’t stay on for much longer. Or maybe I can. I’ve pretty much surprised myself on a ton of different subjects the past three weeks. Not in a good way.
I did do 10 pushups yesterday. It wasn’t so easy. I am trying not to increase any blood pressure to my head. I think I might try to do 10 a day, but it probably isn’t something a doctor would recommend. But, I doubt doctors would be recommending much of anything I’m doing nowadays.
I also sold most of all the stock I own. And I’m gonna sell the rest today. The stock market and our presidential election isn’t going to work that well together this next week. Mainly if Trump wins, which seems to be coming closer to a real chance more and more as the days pass.
Tonight is the final game of the World Series. Like I posted yesterday, Trudi is from Chicago, so she is pretty into it. I’m thinking the Cubs have a pretty good shot at winning tonight. Final game, 7th game, pretty good baseball so far. It should be a good game.
I was supposed to be flying out to LA to ride the Mike Nosco ride on Thursday. I’ve done the ride every year since inception. The ride is great and the people doing it are real reasons I ride bikes. Mike’s brother Jack, conceived the ride, and I’m going to miss seeing him. If you have the smallest chance being in LA on Thursday, please consider doing the ride. I guarantee you won’t regret it.
Okay, sorry about the same old post. I’m hoping to turn a corner soon. Or better yet, just do a u-turn and leave this head injury loop I’m in. I’m not really doing anything other than listening to NPR and laying around with my eyes shut.
Tucker is laying around with me, so that is nice. I feel like he needs to go out and run, but he seems to just want to snuggle up with me all day. I really appreciate it. I just want to feel better enough soon, so that I can take him out to the country and let him do his dog things. He is going to be turning 11 months old next weekend. He likes colder weather, which is slow to come this year. Yesterday it was in the 80’s again. Pretty hot for the first of November.
