How sweet of you to post this for me:)
I am actually doing very well right now..I have decided to only try and get some type of health insurance or part time disability...(still working out details)...instead of doing full disability as my Dr. had first suggested...
He is on board with this new plan and is always willing to work with me on living the best life possible with pain.
The last few years I had been going down hill emotionally/mentally in reference to my life ahead, my divorce, and knowing that my pain is most likely permanent...So I was kind of just 'giving up' per say by staying inside a lot, not seeing friends as much, and just getting by each day..
But in the last months..as I have been eating all organic, exercising daily (up to an hour..with 30 minute walks with my dog in am/pm)...doing yoga, acupuncture, etc. I have been gaining so much energy and motivation..
I did move in with my mom for the time being, which along with helping her with things as her health is not very good..I decided to just cherish this time with her and take some of the stress about money off my shoulders for a bit as that will stretch the money that I do have farther.
I have been getting out more with friends/family as well as doing things that I truly enjoy, which then in turn releases all those lovely endorphins..and that makes my pain much easier to deal with..
And being in my 40's, I am now back down to my healthy weight as I was in my 20's!! and strengthened my muscles in my core and other areas which all helps me stay stronger and recover faster from the days I do too much..
So, my emotional well being has been so wonderful and I am excited about looking for a part time job (no way to handle doing anything for 8 hours straight) doing something that I enjoy..
I have been praying daily for those on this board and hope to be coming around more often..I know that many of you all have been going through tough times and I hope that I can offer my support whenever needed..
Thank you again for this post..you are a sweetheart!!
