By wizard, I mean my family doc. Yesterday I didn't feel up to par, so I went to see the family doc. I have been suffering from some sort of malady to my left shoulder. He called it bursitis, and now I am going to endure some physical therapy. It is a result of a fall I took almost 5 years ago, and am still suffering the results. It affects the shoulder joint as well as the muscles surrounding it. Then, I found out that a small lesion on my nose might be a common kind of skin cancer, and am having a biopsy on Friday morning. Doc Mc said that it is so common that they don't even report this kind. And, I also have been having trouble sleeping, so he gave me some wonder drug that I am to take a half of a tablet at bedtime. Well, I took one last night, and slept like a baby. It also is helping the "internal tremor" that I have had off and on for years.
Now, it sounds like I am falling apart at the seams, doesn't it? Is this just another sign that I am growing older? Probably, but I plan to take steps to see that my overall health stays on an even keel or perhaps improves. Maybe a little more exercise. Maybe better eating habits. And, definitely getting a better night's sleep. Less stress would help, but I haven't seemed to cure that one yet.
This afternoon I will have that first PT session. We'll see how that goes. Right now, just the thought of it is making me nervous and is worrisome. Like anything new, the anticipation is much worse that the actual happening. I'll let you all know how that goes.
