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,
