I Will Learn...

I have to tell you. Your comments yesterday cracked me up. Hearing about stuff you've done to injure yourself totally made me feel better ;)



You're the best. For real.



My lovely Chiropractor (whom I only visit when I am in a state of debilitation) cracked and twisted and aligned me again. She said by Monday I should feel fine, because youth is on my side.



I wish youth were a little more aware that they should me MORE on my side, because frankly, I still hurt.



My expectations may have been a little high...I wanted to feel completely better immediately. Doesn't work that way. Dang it.



I am, however, taking the maximum dosage of Ibuprofen that the human body can handle ;) Oh I kid...kinda.



The pain has slowed me down and I figured about a few things:


  1. I'm a tad bit crabby when in pain.

  2. I do not like being made by my body to sit and rest.

  3. I've been complaining a lot about running lately...and after the past couple days, I realized that the ability to run is a gift. The ability to live life without pain is a gift. Time to change my thinking.

  4. Back pain is not fun, and now everyone who has it has my complete and utter sympathy.

  5. No more gymnastics for me. Ever again.

Makes me think of a little song I happen to love... :) Some people gotta learn the hard way...


Happy Saturday!

  1. I sure hope it won't take going to prison to make you stop hurting yourself. I have hurt myself so many times I could write a book on what not to do.

  6. Not to mention that there's something about back pain that just makes you feel old, even if you aren't, and you aren't. It's that stiffness and bent-over walking,etc. No fun. Get better soon. You can get better from bad backs; I did.

  7. I'm sorry you got hurt. But it's awesome that you were brave enough to try. Hope you're feeling better soon.

  8. Yeah, Running is a gift. I need to remember that. I felt devistated when my doctor I could not run because of my blood pressure. (Granted my first 5K was just over a week away) Now I can bearly drag myself out the door. I will have to start chanting to myself as I get out the door, "Running is a gift, Running is a gift..."

    Hope you feel better soon!

  12. Well I had to add to the "Wish I Hadn't Done That" files. When I was about 7 months pregnant with our 3rd I tried to use my foot to nudge my puppy out of the kitchen, lost my balance, kicked the fridge and broke my middle toe. I was quite the scene hobbling into urgent care with my 3 year old, 1 year old, huge belly and husband walking a good 10 paces behind me. Then I explained to the doctor I kicked the fridge. He of course wondered why so I explained that I was aiming for my puppy. I am surprised the ASPCA or something wasn't called right then and there.
