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 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 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 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 […]

Daily Massage – Dee’s Journey Day 8

Day 8 Feeling good today. Overall, the burning in my foot and lower leg is less and there aren’t any new stabbing pains. Vanessa worked on my foot today. She tried several of the different textures on my foot. A really soft silicon basting brush caused all kinds of weird tingles, twitches and burning. I […]

Daily Massage – Dee’s Journey Day 7

Day 7 – Daily Massage Headache and neck stiffness again today, tired.  Feeling more in my foot and lower leg than a week ago. It’s hard to believe that it’s only been a week. Lots of pain and lots of massage. The changes in my every-day and the amount of pressure required to feel pain […]

Daily Massage – Dee’s Journey Day 5

Day 5 Today I see Anna again. Oh joy, this is fun and we’re having it. She caused me more intentional pain yesterday than I’ve had since childbirth and abscessed teeth. And I volunteered for those in only a distant way. The good news: my lower leg is burning but not as much as before […]

Daily Massage – Dee’s Journey Day 4

Daily Massage for Health Day 4 Feeling fine today. Wide awake and ready to go. I’m a morning person (duh!). Feeling about the same as when I gave up and went to bed last night (or this morning as the case may be). Some burning in my foot but not as much as there was […]

Daily Massage – Dee’s Journey Day 3

Daily Massage for Health Day 3 Another day of improvement. Though yesterday’s massage was not comfortable (to say the least), it wasn’t as painful as the day before (it’s me – not Vanessa). Though the burning spread and became more intense during her work, it dissipated quickly and I had less burning than the day […]

Daily Massage – Dee’s Journey Day 2

Daily Massage for Health Day 2 Felt fine this morning; all the usual burning and stabbing bits that I’ve lived with for three years.  I keep moving my toes around just to feel them. They are still burning but I feel more than I’ve felt in a long time. Feeling temperature and the tingling on […]
