First day of PT

Wow today was a long day. Good is that I really like my new Physical Therapist. Her name is Renee and she is around my age. She was super nice and didn't take everything so seriously. Which helps me because CP sucks it is as simple as that, so I need someone that is able to laugh and be as excited for my little accomplishments, and I think she is perfect for that.

So her idea so far is that I will do a lot of excercises. I will also wear a brace on both feet while I sleep and then I will have braces inside my shoes all the time that will stabalize my ankles. Hopefully this will make me stop falling so much.

My doctor wanted to take me over seizure meds for a little while, since I have not seizure for a while. I went without it for two weeks. Results - seizures return and the pressure in my head is lot more noticable. I am going to start taking it again, because I think it does me more harm to be off of it.

I am reading a new book that I love so I am off to read more...Hope everyone had a good monday :)


  1. So glad you found a PT that you click with. That's so important! We've had to change some therapists for Emma when she didn't click and it really made a difference.
    Do share the book recommendation.....I'm always up for a good read!

  2. Glad you found someone you like. That's important!

  3. Hooray! I'm so glad you like your PT!

  4. Fabulous that you like your PT!! That is always a huge help! So sorry about the seizures-that must not have been any fun...sigh. Now though I am left hanging-what is the name of the book you are liking??!!

  5. The book I was reading was called the girl who stopped swimming by Joshilyn Jackson, its a mystery type book. I finished it yesterday. :)

  6. Yeah I agree CP sucks! But I love your outlook on life! I hope the Braces don't hurt you to much! Glad you like your Physical Therapist. It makes a world of difference when we do! I love my son's ABA therapist and it really does help! Would love to read a book review on the girl who stopped swimming *hint hint* lol!
