not going down easy...

Dec 03, 2014 9:07 PM

Well, I can be extremely stubborn and I am not going down without a fight. I am paying a price now but its worth it. I have always been extremely active so when my little boy asked me to jog with him my response was hesitant (cause I was already in pain) but I said "let's go"! I must say it made me feel alive again. Running was always my release, my anxiety medicine! Wow it was fun. I knew I was going to pay a price for it.but the strange thing about it is my legs are not too sore, it is my shoulders that are thumping with pain. But that is usually my pain spots. Just wierd. Although nothing is normal anymore.
Just wanted to share my experience. To give hope to someone. We can do this!! (Even if its a bit insane)!

Absolutely awesome!!! I know what you mean... I was dancing even though it is so painful but it was a fun distraction for a while.

The next time your son asks you to run with him, you might want to suggest just walking instead or a nice easy hike. If your son is like most, it probably depends less on the activity than on the quality time together. Just my thoughts, but great job stepping out of your comfort zone, that is where true growth occurs.

It almost scares me to say that I'm almost desperate enough from pain this week to give Arkguy a shot at helping me. He said he like skeptics. I'll have to mull it over.

Glad you think so... Look, I never wrote to say that you are necessarily, for lack of better terminology, a snake oil salesman. It's great that you want to help folks feel better and ease some of their pain. I keep cutting down my meds, take supplements, try to keep myself Mobil, changed my diet radically and I've lost almost 100 pounds and I'm not better, but worse as time passes by. After this horrible week with the weather wreaping havok on many folks, today, it's just way more than I can bear. I have a migraine today that is making me throw up and the pain is so bad in my shoulders and spine that I don't want to move... I wish I could fall asleep. This type of desperation sucks.. Believe me, I DO hope for the folks you work on that they will get some sort of relief. I wish you well with your endeavors.

I was being light hearted Alwayz. Even the person that insinuated that I was, I hold no I'll will for. I want to help people in any capacity that I can, that's why I'm posting things that I think might help. I read a lot and have lots and lots of alternative health books in addition to many classes I have taken and want to share that knowledge and help. I feel like that is my calling on this earth. If i can help one person, it is worth it.
