Taco Soup, Roku, and a Warm Blanket

Georgia girls are not used to cold weather, so I am shivering like crazy! I love it though. My house smells of Taco Soup, a blanket up to my chin, and several good movies on Roku.

Yesterday seemed long, but gave me hope. Two doctor visits, one with my new psychiatrist and the other with my therapist. I think I am going really like my new psychiatrist. I felt like a person with him, not a project or a number. He has experience working with DID, and gave me confidence that together our goal would be to reintegrate. I cried happy, real happy tears for myself, the first ones in a long time. I feel like I have a good complete team now to help me and support me.

At therapy I learned circular breathing meditation and received the assignment to practice at least three times daily. She also sent me home we an adorable children’s book called “Moody Cow Meditates”.

Last night I did not have the same struggles and tensions that I generally do on the days after therapy. I know that my husband appreciated it just about as much as I did. I am usually a emotionally raw mess.

Today, this moment, is good. I am very grateful for that.

I Have Often Wondered If I Am God’s Guinea Pig

I know I am a child of God. He’s not a respecter of persons, do you sense the but? Yeah, one is coming, BUT, I have often wondered if I was His science experiment. I know He is not bored with all that is going on in today’s world, so maybe I signed up for some (or all of these crazy health issues).

Found out yesterday that Arther decided to hop on my back. Jeepers, did not even ask for a ride and now he is my constant companion. Hope my husband does not mind that we have Arter in our bed. Not only Arther, they think he might have brought along two friends. They must be kin because they share a last name, Pinched-Nerve. Their names are Cervical and Lumbar. I’m waiting for MRI and nerve conduction study to see about them. Until then I am on Celebrex, hmmmm, sounds like a party. I am not partying.

Today the strangest thing occurred. While working on the desktop computer on my collage for therapy, I started getting extremely cold. Shivering cold. It is 76 in my house. I usually heat to death, that inner child loves playing with matches. I have a really painful knot on the back of my head, feels to high for my lymph nodes, but I do not know. I couldn’t keep my eyes open, I was so sleepy and shivering all of a sudden.

I head back to the bed and snuggled in my warm blanket. I felt achy, so I took my temp. I was shocked when I saw 96.2. I usually run 98.6 – 99.1. I checked it in a few minutes it was 95.9. 95 is hypothermia. I talked to my Mom, and we agreed that I should go out there until Hubby made it home. I did.

It eventually started creeping back up. It was so strange. Maybe I am going to start having cold flashes instead of hot flashes! Living in GA that would be nice. If you are working on that God, I do not mind being your Guinea Pig, but can I sign up my sister and Mother too? You do not go by HIPPA, right?
