I know it’s been a long time since I have written anything, so I will try to update you as best as I can.
First of all, I need to find a new spine specialist because my current doctor makes me feel unbelievably worthless. I hated physical therapy and felt like it did absolutely nothing for me and he keeps wanting me to go back. They basically wanted me to work on my core strength and I can do that at home, by myself. (It’s so expensive too).
I also decided to stop taking my birth control when I am through with my current pack of pills. I feel as though I have been on them for too long and just want to give my body a break from all of the hormones. Either way, that should be an interesting journey.
On top of all of that, last week I noticed that I have something weird going on with my ankles. They kind of fold inwards? (It reminds me of when you are ice skating and they don’t fit perfect so your ankles turn in). It’s super weird. I have also noticed that I am more comfortable standing on the outside of my feet rather than on them the normal way.
I received my first ring splint as well. I wore it for a long, long time but within the recent weeks my fingers have been too swollen and it hurts. (The ring is some awful plastic).
I am going to try to update more often. Keeping track of everything I am going through is important to me. <3.
