Another day of forced rest. It’s easy to get into a negative mode with the pain. Most of the thoughts that wander around in my head have to do with the question ” Will I ever be able to run any distance without these sudden screeching brakes?” It seems like I slide back 3 steps for every 2 forward.
Frustration, exasperation and at times despair. These are the very feelings that feed the pain and keep the vicious cycle going. Thankfully, I was able to keep it real and deal with what is immediate. Besides, there are people with worse problems who overcome all obstacles.
I spent a lot of the day in a woozy zone. I dislike muscle relaxants for this reason but decided to go with the doctor’s prescription because I want to get back sooner than later.
