Today is kind of a big deal for me! Sort of. I don’t really talk about it on the internet but around two years ago this February, my body started hurting. Real bad kind of hurting. I was diagnosed with a muscle pain syndrome had to take a medical leave from work and basically spent about 8 months flat on my back feeling quite sorry for myself and watching Power Rangers (ok, that last part isn’t pivitol to the story, but it is to me in a way). I used to be very physically active; running and kick-boxing and such, so being taken down to the point where I could barely walk without curling into a little sad heap from pain was very difficult for me.
Well, two years later many, many improvements have happened. We’ve gone from not knowing how to fix it to being on the mend. My body was severely difficient in many vitamins due to a stomach problem I may have had all my life, and that kind of lack of nutrients can make your body do awful things to itself! It’s going to take a long time and a lot of vitamin pounding and nurtricional watch doging.. but I am happy to say I am finally at the point where I can do things again. I can jump and roll around and work hard at my computer and take long walks and ride my bike. Today my big step was rejoining the gym, where I will start running again. I’m so happy and proud. Big thank you’s to my awesome friends, family, and everyone who has supported me through what had been a really dark time for me personally. Whenever I layed in the bathrub sobbing, someone was always there to pull me out, rub my back, and stuff a york peppermint patty in my mouf.
I’m so grateful to be alive and be here and do things. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
