More things I have learnt from physio - mainly notes to self. I suspect [personal profile] hagar_972 and [personal profile] taennyn may have useful experience here, where I'm just starting out on the same journey they've already been on.

Muscles in the thigh - VMO, lateralis, the big quad one, the sartorius one across, adductors on the inside, abductors on the outside. VMO needs extra strengthening due to hypermobility. The small stabilising muscles tend to give up, then the big muscles compensate, and that's why my hamstrings get tight all the time. Then the hip/bum ones like glute max and glute mede also need help, particularly the latter.

Making sure things activate in the right order is hard. If the lateralis activates before the VMO instead of at the same time, then my kneecap slides sideways and that's one of the reasons it hurts. Trying to activate the VMO first will retrain it so they both go at the same time.

I really, really need to not watch let's plays of 3D open world games, omfg. /o\ Don't ask me why, but they make me SO DIZZY, it's horrible. I'm fine if I'm the one playing them, assuming I have a controller. If I have to try and play with a mouse, though, nope, same problem. Though actually I think she was playing keyboard-and-mouse style, so maybe it's just mouse-controlled cameras that are the problem. Anyway, I need to NOT DO THAT, because the kinda dizziness that comes with it DOESN'T GO AWAY unlike, say, motion sickness, so yeaaaah. Ugh.

In other news, my Cunning Plan to relocate shoes has worked. Definitely need some kinda dividers, because they don't stack as-is, but yes. Progress!! It feels weird, though, when I look at it. I'm hoping that will fade as I get used to it Being Different.

Tomorrow is be clean barfroom day, and hopefully also getting this freaking sorting-out-old-papers stuff done day, I didn't work on it today because reasons. And by reasons I mean I went op-shopping with Mama because she needed a thing, which is super draining. (Not that Mama BELIEVES me when I tell her this, but. Small steps. Small.)

I threw out something like two kilos of paper today. THAT IS A LOT OF PAPER OKAY?? Just. Wow. SO MUCH CRAP. Still have to organise the stuff I'm keeping, but yeah. It's a thing.

Also there's a hot dog event on the pet site, draw a hot dog custom and get it uploaded for free, and even though I don't like hot dogs and wasn't planning on doing one, well...

I have two large piles and a small pile on my floor right now. Recycling, binders/folders/etc that are now empty, and the stuff I'm keeping, in that order. Mama's getting very ARGH about it, because for whatever reason she's fairly invested in my room being tidy, but I've still got about a third to go, so yeaaaaah.

Still. A LOOOOT of stuff going out! Which means I have more room for things, so HOPEFULLY I'll be able to get some stuff more organised! Haven't 100% decided what I'm going to move into that space, there's a bunch of possibilities. Might move my tech stuff? But I have hopes that I can rearrange my desk so that it both fits on here and is easily accessible, so maybe not... *ponders* May have to play around with things until I find something I'm happy with, honestly.

Though I just Had An Idea - not for this stuff, but for some other stuff - so I might try that out before I actually go to sleep. Yes. Goal for this break, btw, is to find somewhere to keep my shoes, so they're not in a pile on the floor for another six months, hahaha.
