My back went out on me last week. I’d be a liar if I told you that I wasn’t feeling hopeless when I was on the chiropractor table in pain. In fact, my physical misfortunes are starting to take a toll on me mentally. Although I felt like I was making progress on the Achilles tendon issue, it looks like the pain has traveled to my heel. So I still cannot run because, well, my Achilles hates me. In addition to this, due to my back going out, movements like bending over, twisting to reach for something, and carrying my three-year-old nephew, are all activities that have become challenging.
Is there an end to this season?
I know at this point I should be sharing something positive like how I see a light at the end of the tunnel. The truth is, I’m not sure I do at this point. My physiotherapist and chiropractor assured me that things will eventually get better. I’m sure they are right but until that day comes all I can do is try to keep my body moving and spirits up. I am thankful that I can get out of bed (very slowly) and get myself from A to B. There are people who have more serious conditions or ailments who would love to be in my situation. I try to remember this when I see a runner crossing the street, or when I see people at the gym doing barbell squats, or when I see someone get into a difficult yoga pose like a headstand. Okay, I was never able to do this pose even when I was healthy but I think you get what I mean. Lol.
The point is, I’m still standing y’all, I’m still standing! I’m also hoping to get some classes on the calendar and continue to work on ways to get my classes out to the masses.
Thanks for reading and thank you for your encouragement. This is your girl signing off…
