Dystonia Diary

This is what it's like to have cervical dystonia - the good, the bad, and the ugly. Actually, there's nothing good about it.

What a mess

So I'm sitting at Starbucks, drinking their coffee, using their free (with purchase) WiFi, and wondering why my Dr still can't get my Botox right after 5 years! My neck is a mess - so much weakness in the back of my neck that I have trouble holding my head up (especially when I'm working), too much weakness on the right side of my neck (my head droops to the left in addition to being pulled back and to the left), and not enough weakness on the left side of my neck to stop the constant pulling. I'm actually worse now, and it's interfering with my ability to do my job. My next follow-up should be interesting.

I wish I had internet service at home. Going to Starbucks every time I want to get online isn't cheap, and I only work part-time.

BTW, I still haven't been able to watch the video that was posted in a past comment. :( Don't know if it's a problem with my netbook or the WiFi. O_o

A little off-topic

I've been getting several comments that appear as symbols. Unfortunately, I can't read them or translate them, so I have no idea what they say. Does anyone know what they say, or is there a way to have them translated? Thanks in advance. :)

Since Botox takes about 2 weeks to take full effect, I'll post about my shots then.
