Slow Day, Health Stuff

So my man is at work again today. The house is incred­i­bly qui­et with him gone and the girl still sleeping.

Get­ting shad­owkatt back on to a day­time sched­ule isn’t going so well. She’s had migraines twice in the morn­ing. When she sleeps so late, of course, she has prob­lems get­ting to sleep that night! I real­ly thought it would be fair­ly easy after Girl Scout camp, but she’s been noc­tur­nal for most of her life.

Oh—did I men­tion that curiousmay9 treat­ed me to a vis­it with her mir­a­cle-work­ing chiropractor/kinesiologist, Eric, a cou­ple of weeks back? He is incred­i­ble. I’ve nev­er had such gen­tle adjust­ments before, and I’ve been sleep­ing so well! He gave me a tem­po­rary splint that I wear at night to stop grind­ing my teeth and had me start wear­ing those ugly BreatheRight Nasal Strips. They look sil­ly, but I wake up feel­ing so much bet­ter that I don’t care. (Since sam­bear wears them too, we match now.)

When I have health insur­ance again, I need to go see about get­ting a real splint and doing some­thing about the chron­i­cal­ly blocked sinuses.

My right shoul­der and the right side of my neck have had con­stant, hor­ri­ble knots for years now. A pre­vi­ous chi­ro­prac­tor told me I had dam­age there from some sort of trau­ma, and I’d just have to deal with the pain.

Eric watched me walk, then did some chi qung (sp?) on my low­er back. The knots were GONE. They haven’t been near­ly as bad since then, but I’m going back tomor­row. He said my tail­bone has been out of place for years, prob­a­bly since my preg­nan­cy in 1990.

Eric said that IF he could legal­ly do so, he’d tell me to just stop tak­ing all of my meds. I’m a bit wary of doing that, but I’m con­sid­er­ing taper­ing off on them to see what happens.

I want to see him reg­u­lar­ly, but the $60/visit could be a bit dif­fi­cult. I want to take Katie to him, too.
