Excited about Physical Therapy

hoops & yoyo product off of Hallmark

Ever since getting the puppy 2 weeks ago, it's become apparent that I developed some Serious Back Pain. I know that others get chronic, horrible pain all over their bodies (God bless you) and this is no comparison, but if not for the pain meds, it would be even worse to Me I expect, is what I am saying.

The thing is, meds for a physical disorder don't seem to be doing much.

And more than that, my therapist actually spoke at our last meeting, saying when She gets that sort of thing, rather than suffer for 9 weeks or something (I couldn't suffer that long. That's why I go to the doctor.) she asks for Physical Therapy.

Oh. What a novel thought. (We both have insurance, which makes this kind of thing possible. It wasn't always possible. Thanks to Husband, today it is.:)

So that is what I did and I am SO excited to say: I'm gonna get some!

I have a referral and am waiting til Tuesday to call the Phys. therapist person.

I am carrying 80-100 pounds on the front of me. I won't discuss my bra size but it's not helping either.

I looked in the mirror today and started to cry. How did this happen? I feel like I woke up and There It Is.

I carry it nicely, except I think people think I'm pregnant. No, no, no. I'm not!

I want to be me again. I am very motivated, I just don't have a clue how to take off this weight. And I assume that doing/teaching me how is the goal, and I am soooooooo excited!!!!!!!

More on this subject as it comes along.
