I had a follow-up appointment at the pain management clinic this morning. My Vitamin D level is incredibly low (measured at 7.5 when the normal range is 30-50 – and do you know how much it pains me to state this without units?!?), so I’ll be taking massive Vitamin D supplements, on top of everything else.
Meanwhile, I have a consultation with a neurologist in three weeks for a full headache work-up, specifically to look at the possibility of a Chiari Malformation. And I just got the call from the genetics clinic at VCU-MCV, for my consultation there to be evaluated for Ehlers Danlos Syndrome.
I see my physical therapist in just over an hour, for his evaluation of my ankle(s) and new exercises to add to my neck/shoulder/upper back regimen. I just know that by January, I’m going to be spending 90 minutes per session at physical therapy again.
This was what I wanted, so why do I feel anxious and afraid? I have a feeling my sleeping isn’t going to get any better for the next few weeks. I’m going to light a candle and hold onto my rosary for a while, letting the beads slip in and out and between my fingers as the words and feelings tumble through my mind.
