Back in April I was in a car accident that jacked my right shoulder up. I was given the run around for a few weeks and was eventually sent to physical therapy. I've started it. The therapist is great. She's really sweet and nice to talk to. But the therapy hurts. I have compressed nerves in my neck, which has led to partial sensation loss in my arm. My pectoral muscle is rock hard from tension, and the muscles surrounding my shoulder were strained and are now weakened. I'm in pain. But more than that, I'm restless. When I can't do my normal workouts (which I've been yelled at for doing and I'm not cleared for yet) I tend to lose overall motivation. Not just workout stuff, but life motivation. I fell behind in school. My house got a little more messy than normal. And holy crap, my attitude lately sucks. I'm very grumpy!
I'm just not sure what to do about all of this. I'm doing the required daily exercises for my shoulder, which hurts. But it doesn't feel like I'm really working out, or accomplishing anything. I've hit a mental wall and I can't seem to get past. Something has to give before I end up regretting how far behind on everything I am. Can someone come dig me out of the hole that I'm in??
