Daily Massage – Dee’s Journey Day 18

Day 18 Feeling okay today except for a bit of a headache – I think I’m a bit dehydrated. Every day they tell me to drink a lot but some days I do better than others. When I woke up – before I even got out of bed – my lower leg and foot didn’t […]

Daily Massage – Dee’s Journey Day 17

Day 17 I’ve had a day off – the first since we started this experiment; did a lot of sitting in a class yesterday. Other than getting stiff from sitting I didn’t notice a difference from missing a day. Anna worked on my shin today. I don’t think it hurt as much as when Vanessa […]

Daily Massage – Dee’s Journey Day 16

Day 16 Did the same crazy thing again last night – saw LOTS of meteors. Even in the middle of the night I do not have any more discomfort than if I sleep all night. Got a nap before meeting with Vanessa and felt the same – good – when I got up. Light burning […]

Daily Massage – Dee’s Journey Day 15

Day 15 Up very early to see if I could catch part of a meteor shower so I’ve had a few hours sleep. My leg/foot are relaxed and low level burning. My arm has some stabling but not bad. My neck and collar bone are the most bothersome right now. Lots of stabbing and burning. […]

Daily Massage – Dee’s Journey Day 14

Day 14 I had those two days of waking up with headaches and have had none since. I had thought maybe they were a result of the massage work but I guess not. Everything else is changing so why not that? Awake and energetic this morning. Assorted little stabbings in my arm but the burning […]

Daily Massage – Dee’s Journey Day 13

Day 13 Things are good this morning. Rested well. No headache or extra pain. As with most mornings, my right side is relaxed and has less pain than it does after using it all day. Vanessa used a lot of her tools today. It’s interesting how they not only feel different from each other, but […]

Daily Massage – Dee’s Journey Day 12

Day 12 Feeling good this morning. I was so very tired yesterday. Sleep is a wonderful thing. I still have the usual burning on my right side, but my foot seems to be burning less while my upper body burns more. I realized yesterday that the intense stabbing I’ve felt beneath my collar bone and […]

Daily Massage – Dee’s Journey Day 11

Day 11 It’s Anna’s day to set my foot on fire! It’s a good thing I know that Anna and Vanessa are professionals who both want to help – otherwise – I don’t think I’d be doing this. Work with Anna today. She used a lot of lotion (comparatively – it used to be too […]

Daily Massage – Dee’s Journey Day 10

Day 10 No headache, no overwhelming fatigue. Feeling braver this morning than yesterday. Yes, there are downsides to this process but it makes me wonder if I had pushed back at the pain three years ago if I would have had less during that time. I’ll never know but I do wonder. Saw Vanessa – […]

Daily Massage – Dee’s Journey Day 9

Day 9 Feeling fine today – no headache not tired. Nice. Occasional twingey (slightly painful tingles – I’m making up words! I’m also finding myself rather boring.) in my calf overnight. A bit stiff on the right side – unusual for after a night’s rest. I’m finding that I need about two hours of down-time/rest […]
