Life seems to be flying by. It has been real rough around here. My heart is heavy for family. I hurt my back more than a month ago and have been going to constant doctor appointments to get better. I walked 2 hours today. I am getting back to my usual activities. Gun shy, as my doctor puts it, due to the severity of the injury to my back. I am getting there and feeling encouraged finally. I never want that to happen again! Worst pain I have EVER felt! I put on ALOT of weight. I am getting my mind in order to sensibly work that weight off. Walking is #1. #2 stretching carefully! I am still healing with discomfort so slow but go is my motto. I am making a conscious effort to walk to gently work those muscles and ligaments to help strengthen my back, sides and front. I found some gentle balancing exercises I want to try when I'm feeling more confident. Hubby has been great at stepping into my shoes and I notice he's more than happy I am doing more. I think he was taken off guard how much I did/do. I still need him for things like carrying stuff and bending, but I'm doing much better. I admit I need to work on eating right. Depression, anxiety, anger and frustration piloted me for awhile now. I still feel some of that but it is all circumstantial. I am working on getting my mind back on track. It is going to be rough roads ahead. Family physical health, mental health and cooperation is weighing heavy. Very heavy. Everything and everyone seems out of control. I ask the Lord walk with us and hold each person who needs it.

    I am sending you hugs and prayers. I have lived for 18 years allowing my hubs to do a lot of things I feel I should be doing. I have MS. Just this week we have had a resurgence of old symptoms due to stress and exhaustion. You can do it! Keep sparkin

    Wow, we sound similar. I can read your words and feel like you are speaking my life! My back is a lot better, as is my attitude (more positive) and anxiety is less. Now time to work on the weight for me. I am hopeful for you!!!
