I’m going to be kicking it into gear! My recovery from a brain surgery in late August, 2018 has come to a halt, and I refuse to make this my new normal.
I have quick, sharp headaches, tinnitus, dizziness, eye issues, scar irritation, high anxiety and mild depression.
On top of it, recovering from brain surgery has made me put other parts of my health aside. Body pain has become my everyday life and I refuse to take strong painkillers for it. I need to find a way to live at least relatively pain free!
I have always told my kids, “when you’re feeling down, nothing can bring you back up like helping someone else”, so that is my goal.
I am going to start holding myself accountable, finding new ways to help myself, and hopefully, help others along the way.
Please understand that I am new to this blogging thing, so bear with me as I stumble thru.
Starting tomorrow, I will be talking about my driving plan. I am not doing well driving. Between the dizziness, eye issues, scar rubbing on the back of the seat, bumpy roads, and anxiety, driving has become something I dread. However, I do need to do it. I am safe, I stay in my lane, and am alert, but I am not comfortable at high speeds, and passing sends me into full out panic, so I drive slow, avoid large highways, and leave early for everything incase I need to pull over to get my head back on. Its ridiculous, but I am going to try new things, and track how things go.
Also, let me know some of your issues with driving!
