I think yesterday’s ITB increase has achieved a critical point. I slept until 11 am this morning. Frankly, I think I could probably sleep another 4 or 5 hours. I have been having a fair amount of rigidity since Saturday. It is now Tuesday. I fill slight rigidity in my arms, lower back, calves and my forward thighs above the knees, but nothing like I have been experiencing for the last several days.
My pain level is back within acceptable levels. I would have to say probably a 2. I consider anything less than a 5 negligible/tolerable. I seem to be able to think a bit more clear. I am fatigued and starving. I fixed me a sandwich and consumed it in about 10 seconds flat. Yesterday, I wasn’t able to fix me a sandwich. My muscles hurt too bad to open the back the meat was in. So, I had apples for lunch. Thank God for Mother Nature and her apples.
Since Saturday, I have been feeling similar to the way I did back before the reset. And now, after the increase, my body is reacting similar. I am exhausted and need rest. If the cycle is the same, then I should feel like a million bucks tonight or tomorrow. In the past, this would be followed by my foolishness causing me to overexert myself, triggering the progress of a severe spasmodic event. We are now armed with a cocktail against my stupidity and over-exertion. It will be interesting to see how the progression effaces and how effective our combat is.
I have sent in my registration for a seminar hosted by EDoLa on January 20th. It will be the first time that I attend something that last more than an hour away from home. I pray that I can make it. We have the tools. I think we have the knowledge to extend my viability as a human away from home. I need peer interaction and information input. I feel my brain is becoming a hungry desert.
My lovely wife is going to provide the transportation and hang-out in NOLA shopping for the duration. I hope she has a marvelous time. She deserves so much better than what I am giving her, and yet she is a constant.
My tolerance for BS on FB has all but been destroyed. My tolerance for racial slurs and negative unfounded comments about different populations on the globe has faded. We are all human. We are all flawed. Populations of people want to kill other populations of people. It has always been that way, and unfortunately, likely always will, until we learn to live with one another and respect one-another and our diversities. Eventually, I hope, we will lean not only respect for our diversities, but embrace our diversities and understand that this is what makes us human.
Thanks for reading, and God Bless,
