Battling On

Monday, May 27, 2013

Like my very dear friend Cheri--I too tend to battle against the odds and like her am practical enough to accept the inevitable--in this case The Body is winning so far!!Despite the Physiotherapy and the Vitamin D3 Sachets the pain is still bad at times--because according to the Physiotherapist I'm suffering from a combination ? of 3 ailments--the onset of Pelvic OsteoArthritis+lower Lumbar Spondioloisis and Sciatica---all rolled into The Body together.The pain is a combined product of all three together.Well so be it--I CAN and I WILL beat this too!!
The loss of Sudhir's physical support is more poignant than ever--I miss him being there terribly---but I'm learning to reach him in the depths of my mind and through my wishful dreams.The first step to dealing with this is accepting a temporary defeat--I may have lost the Battle but I will not lose the War!!I have made suitable changes in my Diet--for if I'm to turn into a temporary Couch Potato I wouldn't want my weight to bludgeon further at all!!So thanks to the Internet I've got myself a list of what I should eat---more specifically mainly a list of stuff readily available in India!!As the Monsoons draw nearer each day the prospect of subsisting mainly on various Soups and Multigrain Toasts on a daily basis does gain immense appeal!!I am looking forward to the coolness in the Air---though on the flip side the Damp may affect the Body adversely.Maybe the intensely sultry Heat too may affecting all of us adversely--for Lord knows that there are many folks suffering due to it!!
Last but not the least,I have drawn upon my inner reserves of strength to combat this as The Almighty and I are again playing a Game together and though handicapped by the loss of Sudhir's physical presence I will surmount this too!!I and not The Body shall win the War!!

    As we age, the battle continues. I'm sure in retrospect, many of us would do things differently when we were younger if we had really thought about what the outcome would be. I have always loved working in the yard and at times put my body through a lot completing one of my projects. I am paying the price now but will continue to work in the yard....much slower I might add.

I too know that if I could get the weight down, it would help and I continue to work at it. Not going as well as I would like but I won't give up.

Hope that your pain lessens.

hugs, my friend....Mary Anne
