One Vaxxed Nurse Tonight is the last night that I’ll hug my kids goodnight or kiss my husband until god knows when.
Community spread is now confirmed in my area and being an ER nurse means that the odds of being exposed over and over again are now a 100% guarantee. So I just wanted to talk to everyone stuck at home with your family, bored out of your mind and itching to get out. A little perspective is sometimes all you need to feel grateful for the things you have that others don’t.
Starting with my shift tomorrow, I’ll come home from work through my laundry room door that leads to the outside. I’ll strip naked including shoes and put everything straight into the washing machine on sanitize mode. Ill use a Clorox wipe to clean anything I touched in the process. I’ll then take the towel that my husband has left for me and use it to walk to my master bedroom covered up. In there, a room that nobody else is allowed to enter after today, I’ll shower on hot. After my shower I’ll sanitize everything I touched again, then hand sanitize and get dressed.
When I’m done with this process I’ll be able to sit in the family room 6 feet away from everyone I love, but not touch anyone- I’ll know I’ve been exposed. I’ll have been using the same single disposable face mask for minimum of an entire shift and I can’t be sure that the moisture from my breath didn’t render the mask ineffective. So I must treat myself as though I have it and am contagious.
I’ll get to talk to my husband and kids from a safe distance, but I won’t get to touch anyone I love. I’m not a hugger, but I anticipate that the next few weeks are likely to bring days where I could really use a hug. I won’t be able to have one. It’s the only way I can protect them.
If I’m hungry I’ll have someone fix me something on disposable dinnerware so that the worry of improperly sterilizing my utensils isn’t an issue. I’ll probably-scratch that, definitely- have wine out of a red solo cup as I answer a barrage of questions from my kids and try to ignore the look on my husbands face. I’ll probably have to assure my youngest for the millionth time, that mommy will stay safe. When that’s done, I’ll give the kids air hugs and wish them goodnight. When the kids go to bed I’ll be able to unload a little less censured to my husband- but the truth is, depending how bad it gets, I’ll probably lie a little. When exhaustion hits I’ll go to bed.....alone. In a room that nobody else can enter.
This will be my life, every day. Even my days off (until those are no more) because I could be contagious before showing symptoms. So until this thing is gone, my reality will look a lot different. I’ll probably hug my co-workers because they are just as dirty as me, but at a time of heaviness, I won’t be able to receive the human touch of love from the people who love me most. For weeks, for months, who knows- that part is in the hands of the American public.
So my ask of you is this, as you sit at home with your children on your laps snuggled up watching a movie- please end this thing quickly by not going out unless absolutely necessary. My arms stay empty every day that you don’t. I go to bed alone every day that community spread is still a thing. Stay home. Hug your children, sleep with your spouse, eat on porcelain plates, sip wine from a long stemmed glass and give thanks for the things that you can still do that some of us can’t. I’m doing my part. Please do yours.

In reflexology it really helps with blood flow and relaxation to open everything up to give some relief. Feel free to call me or text me if you want to see about giving reflexology a try. 805.245.2408 NEUROPATHY BREAKTHROUGH THERAPY: San Luis Obispo, CA —The most common method doctors will recommend to treat neuropathy is with prescription drugs that may temporarily reduce symptoms. These drugs have names such as Gabapentin/Neurotin, Lyrica, and Cymbalta and are primarily antidepressant or anti-seizure drugs. These drugs may cause discomfort and have a variety of harmful side effects. Neuropathy is a result of damage to the nerves often causing weakness, discomfort, numbness, tingling, and the most debilitating balance problems. This damage is commonly caused by a lack of blood flow to the nerves in the hands and feet which causes the nerves to begin to degenerate due to lack of nutrient flow. As the blood vessels that surround the nerves become diseased they shrivel up which causes the nerves to not get the nutrients to continue to survive. When these nerves begin to “die” they cause balance problems, discomfort numbness, tingling, burning, and many additional symptoms. The main problem is that doctors tell patients to just live with the problem or try the drugs which individuals don’t like taking because they may cause discomfort. There is now a facility right here in the central coast that offers hope without taking those endless drugs with serious side effects. In order to effectively treat neuropathy three factors must be determined: 1) What is the underlying cause? 2) How Much Nerve Damage Has Been Sustained. NOTE: Once 85% nerve loss has been sustained, there is likely nothing that we can do. 3) How much treatment will be required? The treatment we provide has three main goals: 1) Increase blood flow 2) Stimulate small fiber nerves 3) Decrease brain-based discomfort One treatment to increase blood flow utilizes a specialized Laser Therapy (FDA cleared) using this advanced powerful technology. This technology was originally developed by NASA to assist in increasing blood flow. Laser Therapy is like watering a plant. The light therapy will allow the blood vessels to grow back around the peripheral nerves and provide them with the proper nutrients to heal and repair. It’s like adding water to a plant and seeing the roots grow deeper and deeper. UPDATE: Numerous patients graduate from care with little to no discomfort from neuropathy. They can sleep without discomfort walk further, enjoy their time with grandkids and even go on vacations without neuropathy discomfort. Recovery is possible. Many have even spoken with their doctors and either reduced or completely eliminated their medications. The amount of treatment needed to allow the nerves to fully recover varies from person to person and can only be determined after a detailed neurological and vascular evaluation. As long as at least 85% nerve damage has not been sustained there is hope! We are proud to bring the these therapies to the Central Coast. Dr. Spurlock D.C. will do a neuropathy severity examination to determine the extent of the nerve damage for $37 (normally $250). This neuropathy severity examination will consist of a detailed history review & sensory evaluation, peripheral vascular testing, and a detailed analysis of the findings. Please call (805)-540-2010 Note: We are in San Luis Obispo CA at 628 California Blvd. Suite E, in the California Medical Center. We are located across the street from the C.H.P.
