Hello, my name is Lexi. I sprained my back in early September of this year while exercising and then ten days later, I tripped getting onto a bus and injured my knee. It took weeks and weeks for my health insurance to OK physical therapy for both my back and knee when it was not getting better. I have had 6 scheduled appointments for physical therapy, 5 of which I was able to attend. Last week, on the day of the appointment, I was ill and had to cancel. Today was the 5th one I attended. My knee is slowly beginning to feel better, but not my back. My Physical Therapist gave me a couple of back exercises that hopefully I can do without more pain resulting. I have 37 days to get rid of all pain and all sickness to enjoy my trip home to NJ for a visit starting say after Christmas (the day I leave). I am determined. I am going either way, but would be nice to be healthy and pain-free for my trip, and for Christmas. I suffer from asthma since I was 11 and also anxiety and my asthma is allergy induced, and I live with my allergies at the moment (a Siberia Husky dog my sister owns, and then outside I'm allergic to pollen), and anxiety has been a problem since an incident back in May...that I'd rather not talk about. But I am getting treatment for all of the above and hoping God will help heal me fully so I'm not miserable or in pain for the holidays or new year coming up. Thanks for taking time to read this.
