I looked at my chair with the massager on it and realized it's been a very long time since I used it. I used it regularly to address the tension in my back and shoulders. I also had various ways of applying heat to my neck and shoulders. I haven't used those recently either. I haven't needed them. I'm still just as busy. So what's the difference? I think the difference is that Daughter no longer lives with me. I don't have to deal with the drama, and the stress she added to life.
We've had a very pleasant visit this weekend, thanks to the increase in her anti psychotic. I know, though, that there will again be times when the medication is off and she is challenging. For now, I'm grateful for good visits with her and that I don't have to deal with the stress on a daily basis. I'm grateful that I no longer carry so much tension in my neck and shoulders. Very grateful.
