I'm Getting Emotionally Stronger

Tuesday, May 19, 2009

I was leafing through my journal this morning and it occurred to me that with introspective study and work, I'm getting emotionally stronger. I can actually see my own progress! emoticon I still have some issues to work through, but I am pleased with how far I've come since January. The items I have chosen to work on for the next few months will be tough ones but I know I can do it. It won't be easy but it is necessary for me in order to grow and achieve a balance in mind body and spirit.

  I was walking around a local pond last week, or the week before. I did one of my usual jogging spurts and it wasn't a painful effort. I had that same kind of experience, this sense of my own progress. Thanx for sharing this!

Today

Monday, May 18, 2009

I slept over 9 hours last night and I would still be sleeping if I didn't have to get up to answer nature's calling. I'm still very tired and groggy and I've been up for 2.5 hours! Today I will take my sister out to lunch for her birthday. It's a milestone birthday and I think she's a bit depressed about it. It also looks like we're going to get some more much needed rain. Hooray! Our grass was dead looking and the bushes in the front yard were brown. Now I see signs of green! I hope it is a sign of good things to come!

Today I will make good choices, stay within my range, drink 8-10 glasses of H2O, eat 5+ servings of fruits and veggies and treat my body with respect!

Day Two Post Procedure

Sunday, May 17, 2009

Today is Sunday and I had my spinal procedure Friday morning. I'm feeling tired but the pain is about 60% gone! Yea! My hubby took me out for breakfast this morning . I was also well enough to walk out to the mailbox twice! It's beautiful outside and that made me feel happy. I'm getting better every day! Let's hear it for modern science!

    WOW, what a difference, Cyndi!! Ahhh...that procedure sounds almost magical, the way it got rid of so much pain! I'm so glad you and your husband were able to enjoy a nice breakfast out, too. Pain has a nasty way of constricting and restricting our lives, I've found. Y'know, I thought of you when we saw a Tempur-Pedic commercial on TV this afternoon :) So happy for you! - Sara emoticon

Feeling better and maybe a bit hopeful

Saturday, May 16, 2009

Today I'm feeling a bit better and seeing some little rays of hope on my horizon! My back is still quite sore and I'm very tired but a bit hopeful for the eventual outcome of my treatments. I'm off to take a little nap and play with the controls on our new bed! (Hey, I may be over 50 but inside there is this little kid who still loves to play!)

Have a Sparkling Saturday!
Cyndi

    I love your attitude, Cyndi! There's that old saying, "Attitude is altitude," and you're a wonderful living example of that. Rest up well in that nice new bed you so wisely purchased. Here's hoping the injections are still continuing to work on your back pain and that tomorrow might be even a little more pain-free for you. You give lots of "Sparkle" to our Saturdays and every other day of the week, and who sez we kids in the over-50 section of the sandbox can't have a great time having fun? All the best, Sara emoticon

Our New Bed Is Great!

Friday, May 15, 2009

I just want to let all of you know that our Temperpedic "Rhapsody" bed is awesome. For the first time in 15 years I slept without any pressure on my trigger points and didn't wake up because of pain! emoticon That is a major accomplishment! My hubby got on the bed and immediately raised his head and foot. Then he turned on the massage feature and went to sleep at 8 p.m.! (I knew he'd use it even though he told me to only get it on my side! - I got it for both sides and I'm glad I did!) He said that it's wonderful and he really likes it. I agree! The first two steps in my campaign against pain have been completed! (I had my first series of 6 shots/blocks today on my lower spine.) Onward ho, here I go!!!!

    Cyndi, those of us with all kinds of physical challenges would do well to keep an eye on your progress! I really love your proactive attitude toward combatting as much pain as you can and am delighted to read how your new bed is helping relieve not only your pain - plus give you better-quality rest - but is helping your husband sleep better, too! You make me want one. And the first in your series of spinal blocks, too! You've definitely taken lots of action toward feeling as good as you possibly can - wonderful! - Sara emoticon
