Quick Note To Stay In Touch
So much has been going on lately I don't know where to begin. My son is going to therapy twice a week. We haven't started to see much progress yet. Well, none, actually so far. It's hard to be patient. I think I've talked both my husband and my son into doing some family counselling around this as well. We're all involved, right?
I had a confrontation with my therapist and we had a bit of a therapeutic impasse going for a while. I think we can get through it...around it...over it, but it will take a lot of work. Since she's the only expert in dissociative disorders around here, I'm highly motivated to make it work. We've just both got to do the work, that's all. She did get an outside consultation about our situation. I appreciated her effort and caring in doing so. I'll update about that later.
Probably the thing that is affecting my blogging the most lately is this diagnosis I recently got of Thoracic Outlet Syndrome. As some of you know, I've had this problem of my arms falling asleep for years. The doctor I consulted in Illinois years ago wanted to do surgery. I said, "No thanks, bye bye."
Now, I'm going to a D.O. who is a neuromusculoskeletal specialist. He's been helping my husband avoid a second back surgery and I thought he could help me as well. Unfortunately, I have a very difficult time using the mouse with my computer lately. I get this weird, "pins and needles" sensation and my arm and right hand go really numb and cold. I apologize for not getting around to blogs much lately. I have my second appointment with this D.O. this week. Keep your fingers crossed for me, will ya? Thanks! Thinking of you all!
It helped SO SO much. Thought I'd throw this out so you could ask your therapist and see if it would help.
I'll sure be thinking of you as you go to your doctor appointment. Boy, it's always something, isn't it?
Please keep in touch!
As for you and your therapists there are great benefits to sticking it out and working out the impasse. I know you can do this :)
I hope your arm starts getting better soon
peace and blessings
