But also for this very reason, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue, to virtue knowledge, to knowledge self-control, to self-control perseverance, to perseverance godliness, to godliness brotherly kindness, and to brotherly kindness love. For if these things are yours and abound, you will be neither barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. 2Peter 1:5-8

A Little Bit Of October
I have put off mentioning this for months because I did not want to whine about pain. I thought I could go to physical therapy and get things well again. Well think again!! This summer my lower back got injured. Like a dummy, I waited weeks to see the doctor. When I finally saw her, she referred me back to physical therapy. I went to my same physical therapist that helped me in the past. We worked at it for a month with little to no improvement. I have a disc bulge at L4-L5. My therapist thinks I need to get an MRI or something to see what is going on. Maybe there is further damage in addition to that bulge? My problem is that I have nerve pain/tingling all day and night down my leg and into my foot. My left foot feels like a block of ice. Sometimes I swear it feels I am standing in a puddle of water. She tells me nerve damage takes a very long time to settle down. So I do my exercises at home daily. I have never stopped doing my SI joint exercises daily either! I also have self back traction exercises now. These are supposed to be done every two hours! And I use my TENS unit. I have a recheck appointment scheduled with my doctor in just over a week to get some diagnostic testing scheduled.
And I still have headaches from the oven heat and sunlight. (Yes, a headache every day.) The insurance said NO for me to receive Botox shots friends. It basically comes down to, I do not have migraines, so I cannot have Botox. They approve Botox for migraines, not my intractable tension headaches. So I have these appeal forms to fill out. I need the doctor's help on this! Thank God it is cool now. I mostly am fine now. :) Praise the Lord!
Junk. Junk. And more Junk. BUT.... Now may the Lord of peace Himself give you peace always in every way. The Lord be with you all. 2Thessalonians 3:16
