The doctor told me to use rice in a sock for heat compressions on my ankles. That sounds smart. The swelling has almost completely gone from me just getting some rest but the left over pain is hard to deal with. I also have to limit my salt and switch blood pressure meds to one that is both a water pill and a blood pressure medication. I need compression stockings as well. She ordered X-rays because the pain is mainly in the ankle bones and they should not be so tender to the touch. I am really glad I went to see her even though she is allergic to smoke and was just recovering from an asthma attack which kept her from working for 4 days. I didn’t know her allergies were that bad so I smoked before I went to see her and she was suffering. Like she was in a room full of smoke but nobody was smoking. I made a joke about it but it really wasn’t funny at all. I can’t really vape or smoke before I go see her because watching her cough like that reminded me of my perfume allergy.
The whole bed rest thing is not fully necessary. I need to limit my activity’s if I notice the swelling coming back. My ankle was swollen back up just from going to the appointment in the first place. I was able to get the boots on but it was hard. Luckily these boots are comfortable. It is a lot of snow expected throughout the week. I need to set up all the test that she wants me to have done. She is a pretty good doctor and so far I like going to see her and it is not that far from my house like some of the other doctors I go to.
I have been catching up on Altered Carbon. I decided not to binge watch it. I kept falling asleep on the talking parts and missing all the action. I have made it half way through the season but my daughters’ father won’t let me watch them without him so I would have watched more. It was getting really good. I haven’t been able to play the game because he is still playing Nioh which is just simply to hard for us to play. Me and my daughter tried to take turns from the beginning but we couldn’t get out the building where you start at. It took him two days just to beat one boss.
Our hair is done for now. I will re braid my hair ASAP and put some oil on my hair and scalp. It will be dry in a few days. I have just been adding a little oil to all the dry looking areas. I need to oil my entire scalp next time. It doesn’t look dingy for now which means the plan worked and so did the products I use. My daughter needs Moisturizer every day no matter what I use on her hair. I just re braided hers. Now it looks dry again. Maybe I need a different product. We will see. All it needs is to be moisturized and combed daily since she has that high pony still. She doesn’t like me to comb her hair but her hair dresser is busy and the other one moved. So I have been doing her hair since then.
This vape pen is perfect for me. Of course I got a cheaper one since it was my first time vaping. He says I spent too much only because he don’t vape. The dispensary had old stuff the first time and it was kinda dry. The next time they had better quality. We were running through it because it wasn’t that potent in the first place. That may be why they had it on sale. I will find out when they are getting some more in that is fresh and see if it works better and taste like it is supposed to. Using the pen right now to try to loosen the muscles and dull some of the pain, plus I am doing the stairs. I needed to do some ankle stretches before I got started. I didn’t do too many because I didn’t want to make things worse. I am feeling better today and I slept well. Time for breakfast.
