Minor Setback

Saturday, January 12, 2013

I've sunk into a mild state of depression. My back is messed up again and after two trips to the chiropractor this week, I'm not feeling much relief from the pain. The pain is comparable to the initial injury I had this summer, only this time pain meds aren't helping as I've developed a tolerance. I'm headed to get a massage here in a few minutes and I hope it brings me some relief. On Monday I have a consultation with a new chiropractor. His reputation is that he knows his stuff. On top of that, he's also a personal trainer. I'm told that he's good about prescribing exercises to help with the ailment. Plus, I'm hoping he'll be able to tell me what I should and should not be doing in the gym.

I was on such a roll with exercising and eating right that I'm super bummed that all I can do right now is lay on the couch. Sitting, standing, and walking are all uncomfortable and often painful. I had registered to walk a 5K this morning with coworkers which I, unfortunately, had to bail out on.

That's really all I've got for now. I hope your weekends are great. Hopefully, this massage will give me some relief and let me enjoy the second half of my weekend.

    Hopefully you'll get some relief soon. Hope the new chiropracter is as good as he sounds. Meantime lots of fluids and keep the carbs low. It might help to mentally work on a gratitude list to help lift that depression. You have many things in your life to be thankful for; this is just a bump in the road. Be well. Hugs.

Watch your eating and you won't have to worry about a gain to go with the set-back! (just a hopefully helpful hint, which you probably already knew about)
