It’s been quite a while since I’ve had a good chance to blog! Summer’s been busy (probably not in healthy-people standards), but things should be easing up now. That being said I can’t believe how quickly time feels like it’s passing. I will be blogging a bit more about this summer, hopefully soon.
I’ve been having quite a bit of trouble with my hip dislocating and subluxating. It’s becoming a frequent and unpleasant problem now. Right now it’s the worst it’s ever been and I’m feeling a bit lost as to what to do about it. I’ve gotten so used to dealing with these particular problems on my own – I cope with and manage the pain until whatever joint it happens to be goes back into place. With my hip it’s a bit more difficult. The movement required with walking, even with a crutch is painful and when I twist it the wrong way which I unintentionally do it’s agonizing. I could hardly move while I was trying to sleep, and normally I have to switch positions constantly for various pain related issues.
Mom’s off to the store to get me a cane. I’ve been using a crutch for the time being but it’s hard on my shoulder and it doesn’t seem to let me shift the weight in a semi-comfortable way. Maybe a cane will be better. If it is I’m definitely bedazzling it with zebra duct tape. If you’re going to hobble, hobble in style.
Not much of an update, I know. But I’m hoping to pick this up again more regularly now.
