How can one truly express the horrors of deep physical pain?
There's so much I want to do in my mind, but my body just won't cooperate. Pain is very humbling to someone who has always done everything alone. I commit myself to "Sparkpeople" and here I am on my first real day and I can barely move. I choose not to think of this as a set back, just a more profound reason I need to fight this body with good health and exercise.
I've learned by past experiences that if I push through the pain, the pain will only get worse. I never had the time to listen to my body before, I'd push right through it and I ended up in a mess. I went through months of constant, excruciating pain and was totally incapable of doing anything. Thank the Lord that He's finally taught me to listen to this body He created.
It's just a matter of time where I'll be back on my feet again.
