How many of you would like an out of body experience?

Written By: JoJoisms - Apr• 04•18

So the other day I was going through some of the JoJoisms I’d written a while back to see if I had any I felt strongly about making into a visual version.  This one stuck out.

I’m not saying I’m all that old, though my kids would have you believe otherwise.  I’m just saying that on the road through chronic illness, there’s some rest stops along the way that make you feel old.

I was recently taken off my beloved muscle relaxer due to a rapid heart rate and jitters/tremors.  I’m still jittery and my hands shake, but it’s not as bad as it was.  Unfortunately, my dr wants me off the muscle relaxer until I see her again this month.

I’m not happy as I’m not sleeping as well…some days are worse than others. And I’m in more pain during the days. So I FEEL older than I think I should at 55.

I’m over six months past my last (and hopefully FINAL) surgery–this time on my ankle.  I had wanted to start my new exercise program which looks easy and fun and has all the earmarks of something not that difficult for someone whose muscles have grown weak from all the couch potato-ing I’ve been doing. However, just starting the first day of my CD rom, was exhausting.  I’ve tried it twice now and I get fatigued closer to “let’s begin” than I’d like to admit.

I’m going to wait until I see my dr again and see what can be done. In the meantime, I remain your humble, purple, and tired corespondent…who feels like she’d like an out of body experience.
