2017 December 16th, Two Positives

I feel the need to follow up the last entry with two positives.  The first is that my beautiful wife, my daughter and I went run errands mid-day.  After about 3 hours of being out, the on-going cramps finally progressed to spasms.  At our last stop, I stayed in the car and took my cocktail.  That’s been about 30 minutes ago and they are starting to kick in.  The spasms are weakening.

I love that we have found this.  I spend three hours getting a haircut, shopping, eating cheesecake and I’m getting relief laying on the positive #2:  A heated throw.

One of the largest issues I have is getting quality sleep because of all the cramps, spasms and agonizing pain from arthritis and, mostly, the spasticity.  My wife talked to a massage therapist and found out about heated throws.  I’m in love.  I didn’t want to get out of bed this morning.  Normally, I can’t wait to get up and move around.  A heated throw is going to be an incredible addition to our arsenal. I can accuse the blanket of increasing my comfort level.

Note:  I apologize for the negativity of the prior entry.  However, I promised myself that I would be honest in writing this blog.  In eliminating my mentality, I eliminate the truth.  Using a word coined by Michael J. Fox: “The suckitude level is,” very high.

Thanks, and God Bless,
