After a fall that came so quickly with no chance to protect myself; recovery? No clue what to expect.
My sleep is different that is for sure. I cycle in sleep for an hour or 2, up 2 hours, maybe 3 and back to sleep, because I am so tired and my head hurts.
I have extremely reduced screen time and as a writer this is hard. I have all my devices set to warm background colour so as not to annoy my head. But I can only view for 10 minutes at a time. My hearing since I am listening to music and podcasts feels amplified. I hear everything!
It is 12:30 a.m. and I just awoke because my cat was trying to open the kitchen cupboards. My husband bounds up from the couch thinking the noise is coming from outside. I tell him it is the cat. He goes to the kitchen and the cat; smart gal, comes and curls up in the spot he just left on the couch! Did she do that on purpose?
No TV, I cannot read books as I get dizzy and so it is music and podcasts. I listened to a few today about managing your finances, finding your purpose, and one about science. They cannot be longer than an hour as I fall asleep or I realize I am not following after a bit and the headache starts…
My left shoulder throbs, the right arm at the bend is black and blue and sore where the IV was.
I did remember something my grandmother taught me though; cool witch- hazel compresses. Soothes and the swelling went down, and the black and blue seems to be better.
I am restless as I cannot do much and no exercise except to do some stretches and shoulder rolls for my left shoulder.
Okay, screen time over… head is beginning to ache.
