I went to my cudendero, who is trained in hueseros and sabaderos…sort of a holistic massage therapist/chiropractor. I really feel much better. Now, while I HAVE gone to a bruja blanca at a botanica when my children were little, this guy is not a bruja.
He just gave me a deep muscle massage and managed to get my hips level, my jaw fixed (TMJ) and yanked my head around. I feel so much better….and I got an unexpected shot today.
Dr. Migraine explained to me that my headaches are so severe (wow! what a surprise!!) that the pain scale doesn’t work for me. He took my pain assessment and is going to do an overlay to see if he (well, probably someone who works there who knows how to program this) can see how the blood pressure (which is the only thing I am personally worried about) correlates with how bad I hurt. And a 1-10 scale falls far short of my own personal headaches.
However, I am sure that either Dr. Migraine or mi cudendero or a combination of the two can fix me. I have a LOT of things planned and a stroke isn’t one of them.
On the up side, the kitchen cupboards have all be scrubbed and reorganized (Boy-o’s doing). The whole house has bee vacuumed and dusted. I have bookcase almost done…it is a LOT more involved that I thought it was…I have LOT of books! Even by bagging up my ‘not best” books…I want to keep them but they just fall short of my display books, I have a ton.
And I still have the office…..and the tax paperwork….and my closet…..all for another day.
