At Least I Hit My Word Count

Written by Kodi Wolf at 12:15 PM

July was the opposite of June. I started off barely getting any words written and then managed to hit my word count in the last few days of the month.

My total word count for July was 18,588, which averages out to 600 words per day. My lowest words per day was 51 and my highest was 2,634.

Part of what slowed me down at the beginning of the month was that Corene and I spent the first week cleaning up and organizing the house. With all the medical stuff that's been going on, it was getting pretty bad, but we buckled down and got most of the house picked up. It feels a lot less stressful now, which has been great.

We even repurposed the office to make space for an exercise area, since I've relocated to the recliner couch due to back and neck issues. I now have a space to do some minimal exercising and Corene's inversion table is more accessible without being in the way of everything else. I really like being able to just walk in there and do some quick exercises.

Of course, the medical stuff hasn't stopped. After treating what my doctor thought was ringworm for two months and not getting anywhere, and then having a random breakout of hives all over my legs and arms, I ended up at the dermatologist and had a biopsy taken on my thigh.

Thankfully, it just turned out to be pigmented purpuric dermatoses (yay, a new diagnosis, just what I wanted... not). It's sort of like my body just decides to randomly form bruises in large patches all over my legs and arms. There's nothing they can really do about it, but it doesn't hurt, it's not contagious, and it isn't linked to anything more dire, so at least there's that. :)

Oh, and I don't think I mentioned it before because I was getting tired of writing about even more medical crap, but I've been dealing with wrist issues for several months now. The doctors wanted to do an MRI with contrast, but that seemed really invasive to me, so I just stuck with doing some exercises and happened on one that seems to have been really effective: traction.

All I've been doing is grabbing on to the refrigerator door handle and pulling from the side so it doesn't open for a couple sets of 10 seconds each and that seems to have made a huge improvement on my pain and mobility. Way better than the exercises I was given, which were actually increasing my pain.

Well, I'm working on a site update, so let me get back to that and see if I can get that up in the next couple hours.
