Weekend Update

Happy Tuesday, folks!  How was your weekend?  Mine was pretty good, actually.  I am still fighting headaches and such, but I am trying to make the best of it.  I'm trying to decide if I should still see my chiropractor.  I am confident in his abilities, but five weeks later and I actually feel worse.  He keeps telling me that I didn't just start getting headaches overnight, so they won't stop right away, but man...it's rough.  We'll see.  I cancelled my appointment yesterday, and I can't decide if I'm going to cancel the rest of this week's appointments or not.  Any advice?

Anyway...on with the weekend!

As I mentioned last week, on Friday I got to meet with Dr. Temple Grandin, published author, Doctor of Animal Sciences, and the most successful adult living with Autism.  She was so insightful and honest (i.e. blunt), and it was fabulous.  We mostly chatted about higher functioning people with Autism, and she said a lot of the things that I believe, but didn't know if it was "ok" to think or say. 




Saturday was awesome!  I went way out of my comfort zone, and invited a friend for a girls' night at a local fitness studio for a "stiletto chair dance" class that taught as a routine start to finish.  Well, I invited a few friends, but apparently only one of them had any kind of an adventurous spirit.  I'm almost to the point where I can say that I only have one good friend, because the rest of them will only hang out with me if it's something they suggest to do, but that's a different rant for a different day.

Anyways...it was fabulous.  There were 20-ish ladies in attendance, and we had some hilarious personalities.  The ladies teaching the class were fun and super talented, and my things burned so much the next day that I could barely walk!  I really hope that they do one of these again, because I am all for it.



Afterwards we went out for cocktails and girl chat, which was sorely needed.  This girl is fabu, and I'm really going to miss her when I move.  She's been a great friend the past year.


Sunday was a whole lotta nothing.  Besides the aforementioned sore legs, I had a pretty crazy headache, and so it was a Netflix on the ouch kind of day.  The dogs sure enjoyed it.  They predicted another snowpocolypse, but we only got maybe two inches.  Fine by me.

Holy crap, you're all kinds of amazing for trying out a stiletto chair dancing class. I can barely stay upright in heels. It's always good to have at least one good friend who's up for anything and everything. Those are the best kinds of friends to have.

Maybe you should see another chiropractor for a second opinion. It's normal to feel worse before you feel better, but that sounds awful. Either way, it'll give you peace of mind to hear from someone else who knows what's what.

:( I am so sorry that you are feeling worse. I think you should get a second opinion, it definitely can't hurt.
