I apologize for dragging you all along on this emotional roller coaster that is my life right now. I, for one, am ready for it to be over. Thanks for “listening” to my whine–I know there’s been an abundance of it.
One thing I am trying to do to keep my spirits up is to focus on my blessings (and there are many). A few things that have made me happy over the last day or so–my running friends. Some of them see the ledge that I am on and are trying to get me off it. One friend has offered to meet me for swimming and water running, another for a glass of wine (or a bottle!), and yet another for a workout, coffee, whatever. Thank you Janelle, Pat and Jess!
Another thing that is making me happy is the improving shape of my feet. Since emancipating them from my shoes/orthotics a few weeks back, they are showing me their gratitude. They are stronger, the toes are more splayed, and I’m enjoying the sensation of walking around barefoot inside and outside (at least in Florida!). When that day finally arrives that I can run again, they will serve me well.
And have I told you that my master bathroom is currently being demolished? The contractors got started yesterday and within a couple of weeks, it will be bigger and better. Can’t wait to use it.
Wednesday I will see my PT again and regroup. In the meantime, I’m trying hard to focus on the positives. Thanks for all the kind words, thoughts and emails while I go through this painful journey!
