I have continued to make good progress in the last three days. My biggest complaints are still pressure behind the nose/eyes, visual disturbances, and not sleeping well at night. I have cut out my daily naps in hopes to help make me tired at night and we are still working on the melatonin combination to help regulate sleep. My appetite comes in shifts. One minute I feel like I might be sick and the next I feel like I could eat a whole buffet. I have increased my walking and physical activity the past few days. I drove for the first time in eight weeks yesterday! It was only a short distance with my mom as a passenger but it was so exciting. I still set goals each day because I know that I see the most progress on days that I set goals for my self and work hard to achieve them. The goals are small like going to lunch with my family, walking further distances than the day before, etc. Pushing myself just enough to where I see results but do not over doing things. Today has been a bit more painful than the others but I am working hard to overcome the pain. Although today has been painful, the pain is no where near to what it was before surgery or two weeks ago. It is manageable! Walking, ice compressions, and minimal stimulation seem to be the best combination.
Emotionally, the past few days have been hard. This week has been rush week at the University of Alabama and I hate to be missing it but I am counting down the days till I am back in Tuscaloosa with all of my sorority sisters. Tomorrow is Bid Day and although I am not physically there, I am there in spirit! I cannot wait to see all of the beautiful new additions to Alpha Gamma Delta Psi Chapter.
I am also working hard to prepare all of my school stuff for classes start this upcoming Wednesday. I will be taking all online classes. This is a first for me as well!
I have tried spacing out my blog posts to every two to three days since there is not too much to report! Remember, if you would like specific updates or have any questions you can always email me at email@example.com!
