It’s been all of two days of revision for my Pilates Instructor Course theory exams and it’s already driving me mad. The Heart And Circulatory Systems and The Musculoskeletal System make some sense, although there’s a lot to learn, some of it complicated, but I have no idea how I’m going to remember all the muscles of the body, where they attach and what they do. Have made a start on The Muscles Of The Shoulder Joint, Shoulder Girdle and Rotator Cuff Muscles.
Also, my breathing isn’t good. Went up a couple of small inclines with Dolly and struggled to breathe. So am very concerned that the cancer is growing in my lungs. Will find out at seven o’clock tomorrow evening. Thoughts and prayers welcome.
Am lying on my bed. The panther lies on the bed next to me, resting his head on my back. He is very heavy.
Walk Dolly this morning. She’s so pleased to see me and rugby tackles me a couple of times which she’s not allowed to do. Here she is:
And here we are together:
This ceanothus lives near Dolly:
It’s a warm sunny day and we end up taking off our sweaters. The ground is cracked and dry: presumably there’s been no rain for weeks.
I’m not sure whether my health anxiety is massively increased by the presence of the panther. Am wondering whether maybe there is a psychological component to my breathing issues. Let’s hope so. Of course, if I turn out to be dying there is no point in stressing about the muscles of the shoulder girdle. Maybe anxiety about my exam is making me worry so much about my breathing. All will be revealed in Thursday’s blog anyway.
Fluffball has come in so am going to find him and cuddle him. Also need bath.
Happy Tuesday everyone!
