Okay everyone this might be a long post but I needed to tell you all about my first milestone!
The last ten days have been HORRIBLE! So much pain down my legs....in my back....shooting down to my toes. It's been terrible and I have been feeling so sorry for myself that I have stayed inside for most of it. Well the biggest reason is because I got out of the tub and tripped over my yellow lab three days ago and it hurt like heck and really messed up my back.
Anyway, I woke up yesterday morning and the pain had resided a bit so I rested and rested all day just to make sure the worst was over with. Well this morning I woke up and was down to a 6!!!!! Holy cows talk about wonderful!!!
Well, I got ready to head for the store....headed outside and locked the door. I got this urge to suddenly walk to the store. Yes I said WALK! It was a nice morning here in KS and the heat had not begun quite yet so I decided to take a little walk. The grocery store is only 3 blocks from us and I figured I'd take it slow and easy and if the pain really started to pick up I could just turn around and walk back to the house and grab the truck.
I made it all the way to the grocery store on foot!!!!!!!! WOW! Then I walked back to the house!! Man talk about feeling like I have acomplished something!!!!! I feel great that I got; One: some fresh air and Two: Excersize!!
I am now sitting in my chair and am so tickled with myself that I'm in a great mood LOL. There is something about doing something good that its great to feel that you've made some accomplishment. Even the little steps are so great to know that you have done them.
But, now I am sitting here and the pain has flared a bit. Might have done to much. I'll take it easy for the rest of the day and see how I feel tomorrow. This just might be a routine thing LOL.
Anyway just wanted to share my accomplishment with all my friends. I hope each of your pain is low today.
What doesn't kill us only makes us fight back harder! :P
