I have a TENS machine that I use for some muscle/tendon issues.
On Sunday I woke up with a headache, mostly due to the huge amount of pollen from being in a flowering park for eight hours on Saturday. I popped a tylenol and decided to try the TENS machine for the headache. First – a TENS machine works by shooting small electrical pulses into you. Most of the time it causes uncontrollable movements.
I curled up on the couch in a semi-fetal position put two of the pads on the back of my neck and just tried to relax for 30 minutes while it did it’s work. You could not see the TENS machine or pads if you were standing up. So there I am laying on the couch at 11 in the morning which is very unusual, with my eyes closed, and my shoulders, arms & head making involuntary movements, twitches and shrugs and shaking. I can tell you that when my son came through he was quite worried about my apparent seizure and later my husband had a very similar reaction. It was very amusing in a lowkey kind of way. It did a great job on my headache! Something to remember, but if you’re going to try it, please remember to warn your family.
Cleaned off my cell phone camera.
Last week I went to a Networking Reception. It was held at Costco. They make a room by moving pallets of things to form walls. It was interesting. The room, not reception. I met our mayor. He was not impressed with me as evidenced by the way he kept looking over my head and not acknowledging me. I liked everything he had to say and I believed he was sincere but I dislike being dismissed. Probably because I did not look important. I was dressed in my summer casual instead of business black.

Costco provided a lot of tasty looking food.
My husband and I picked up the cakes the morning of the weddings. These are the bakery people literally scratching their heads trying to figure out what to do when they realized they had no way to pack the cakes. Stuff was missing that they usually have to pack things securely.
We ended up with an assortment of trays and boxes and drove very very slowly.
Went to pick up some flowers and there was an unexpected carnival in the parking lot!
Spent the day with Katy before her wedding.
This bench is at the park the wedding was held. I just love it.
I wish I knew how to improve my depth of sleep. Maybe I’ll try a white noise machine. Does anyone use one? Tonight I’m going to try ear plugs. I’m also considering ordering this thing on Amazon. It’s a soft wrap-around headband thingy with speakers. I could do white noise, or whatever.
Today I had a physical therapy appointment. Wednesday I am having the indestructable wart surgically removed. They’ve been treating it for three years with no luck. Not looking forward to that pain. Friday is checkup at the oncologist. Then, next week is foot doctor and physical therapy. Week after that is ear doctor. Then done for at least a week. Geesh.
