I am so down right now. Went to see the doctor today and we are going to try an Epidural shot in my lower back again to see if it will relieve the pain. I can't bend over or squat down right now. Two weeks after the shot I am to call him and see if it helped. He said that he is sure in time I will have to have surgery but want to put off as long as possible.

So that means no Zumba, which I love and look forward too. I am going to try to keep walking outside and on the threadmill, it just might not be as long. Being so depressed right now I am going to have to really watch my eating. Food is my comfort and I have to break that habit.

I feel I need to write something inspirational but right now that isn't possible. I will get back to my old self, just give me time to regroup. God doesn't throw anything at us that we can't handle. The Golden Years are getting on my nerves. (LOL)

    So sorry to read you are struggling right now. Your back pain is putting a damper on a lot of things right now. Glad to see you're going to keep walking as you're able - hope that will help both with the physical and emotional symptoms.
Good luck with the epidural treatment. I'll be thinking of and praying for you.

    I'm so sorry for you. That is not the news I was hoping for as I'm sure you were not either. It is so hard sometimes but we just have to try to accept what the good Lord deals us. I know you can be strong and that you will do whatever you are able as far as fitness, but please don't injure yourself further. At least it is fresh fruit and veggie season so those will be plentiful. Hopefully you can stay away from other temptations. We will be rooting for you and praying for a quick recovery. emoticon
