I have been in pain for months. The doctor said he thinks I have a pinched nerve in my back. After two previous appointments, yesterday he finally said that if it were serious, I would get cortisone shots. If it is not serious, he said, then I would just go back to therapy.
Therapy has taught me many things, but how to be pain-free is not one of them.
so I got an MRI today finally, after months and months of hobbling around and being in lots of paint. I get up this morning and nothing hurts, nothing is inflamed, and I feel normal again. so I think nothing of it.
I go and do the scan, and I get a call a few hours later from my physical therapist, saying that they had gotten a script for me to go back to therapy.
My dilemma is…. Why should I go back to therapy if I’m not learning how to get myself out of pain?
So many things have happened this summer so far. I took a trip to Michigan to see K-salty with some friends, and it was a lot of fun. I’ve been working at the chicken coop all summer. I can’t wait to get back to Purdue!
Missing my friends and my Boilermaker family, especially at St. Tom’s, and all of my friends in the Photo dept.
Online shopping is my new hobby. also, moving into a new apartment. GET PUMPED!!
Life is such a wonderful, beautiful thing. Sometimes I think we let the things that are overwhelming or sad take control and keep us from remembering all the joy and wonderful things that life has to offer.
