Relatively Pain Free! ... oh, unless I move.

I woke up this morning and thought, "Wow. What's this? I feel pretty good!" Then I rolled over. Oh. Well, if I don't move, I feel pretty good.

I've been filling out my little coloring body pain picture thing from the vantage of sitting still. LOL. Guess I had better figure out how to do it in the course of a "normal" day. Duh. It still seems like a negative exercise to me, although when I told my doctor I'm using the CatchMyPain app, she said "Good."

I got a referral to PT, but haven't set it up yet. That's going to mean moving, on purpose, in ways that are going to hurt and cause soreness, but ultimately it does help and it does generate energy for some reason. Maybe it's endorphins. It'll take me another week to get around to it, but I'm going to go for it.

Might as well face it, I'm addicted to life.

Lol Grandma, I like your outlook! πŸ‘ I've been through 12 weeks of PT on various areas of my body, since January. I have to admit it has helped me to not be as study. However, I have also learned there's a limit to how long I can do something: 15 minutes and then that body part starts screaming in pain. Then when I stop it takes 30+ minutes to recuperate. I'm suppose to walk 30 minutes a day but I've yet to make it past 12, because my feet start hurting, then my knees, followed by my hips and back. At least I'm trying every day, right? Hugs& prayers it gets easier as time goes! πŸ™‚πŸŒΌπŸ’•πŸ™

Silver, that's what PT said, but the treadmill was free. πŸ‘
