Brain Fog

I’ve got two shoots today and an appointment to workout with Baby Face.

It’s going to be a crazy, chaotic, fun, exhausting, day!

I worked so long and intensely yesterday, my brain hurt by the end of the day.

It reminded me of how it felt after I took the SAT exam years ago.

(And also the time I took a three hour physics exam.  I’m definitely NOT a physics person.)

Brain Fog.

I was editing and formatting photos for various sizes and print mediums most of yesterday.

The photos I was working on are for an office building in L.A. County.

I’m an extreme perfectionist with my prints.

I spend a lot of time on every tiny detail prior to okaying them for print.

It will be very exciting to see the finished product(s) once the prints are all “living” together in their final destination.

Every once in awhile I take short computer breaks for fresh air.

I like to visit the hummingbirds in my backyard.

Isn’t that the fattest hummingbird you’ve ever seen?

“My” hummingbirds are very friendly.

They know I’m the one who feeds them so they’re fearless around me.

I had an early morning visit with Dr. Painless yesterday also.

He and I continue to modify this and that with my pain medications so I can truly live my life.

Sheesh – I was sure in bad shape when I first met him.

He’s helped me so much and I’m forever grateful.

I’ve come so far.

I need to remind myself of exactly that on the days I feel frustrated by pain and/or the things I can’t do.

Every day is another day for a tiny baby step forward.

Sometimes I get stuck,

And sometimes I regress for awhile.

(I’m really not  nice  happy when I regress!)

But …?

I’ve got this awesome network of medical people helping me along.

When I think about where I WAS (curled up in a ball sobbing in pain with no use of my arm),

And what I’m able to do now  (take photos!  smile!   laugh!  use my arm a little bit sometimes/sort of!)  –

Well, it’s practically a miracle, isn’t it?

    In my view it’s not a miracle, it’s science and will power and endurance, which is even more marvellous because of the human input required. I’m so glad things are so much better for you now.

      Yep – and sheer stubbornness too!
