Since the accident, the doctors say no strength training. It has been 5 months. They will tell me when it is OK to start again. I am sad to gain 20 pounds after the hard work of the months before, but I am very happy to be alive and able to write here again.

I started yoga a few days after the accident -- very mild poses. I was unable to walk for a few months, but now I can walk again. I am taking public transit and walking to all the appointments. I am doing the physical therapy exercises at home. I am doing my best to heal.

I'm keeping track of nutrition, water and sleep. I hope this will help the healing process.

    It seems to take forever to recover from a severe injury but it sounds like you are doing all the right things. I imagine you often find it discouraging because of the loss of physical tone and the gaining of weight but you can get back to goos health. It sounds to me like you are doing all the right things and have the right attitutde. Your doing so well, just don't rush it.

    God Bless.
