Hello everyone. I am sorry to be late with my next post–I am recovering from an injury to muscles connected to my sacroiliac joint (low back– right hip area). I am gradually off of pain medication but I am spending most of my hours laying here on my left side.
It was quite a shock last thurs. a.m., after a sleepless night, when the pain was so excruciating I had to go to the Emergency Room and there received two doses of morphine because the first dose was not enough! Now, after lots of vicodin which helped me to rest I am now weaned off of it completely and am able to walk without severe pain for a whole 5 minutes!
Needless to say progress has been slow but now it should speed up as I am under the care of a wonderful holistic chiropractor who has helped me much this week treating and relaxing the muscles and the healing has now speeded up. “Pain is a teacher” he says as I complain about the pain ha ha.
He has now reassured me that I will fully recover–of course I will–I know this! But I also realized I had some deep-seated irrational fears that I will be in such a dependent and debilitating state forever. Some childhood wounds came up to the surface to be acknowledged. This happening to me perhaps is healing those last unconscious fear remnants once and for all.
So what is the lesson in this happening to me? Plenty! I will be writing all about it in my next post. As a highly sensitive person, my recovery is slower, my pain more deeply felt, but my resolve and appreciation for all things in life is raised to new heights! My post will be about HSPs and the body, the importance of exercise and core strength, and this “awakening” that will forever change my habits of not listening well enough to the cues from my body and how this relates to emotional healing.
I just want all of you to know I am still here, I am thinking of you, I care and I will get to your emails, comments, and back to my coaching as soon as possible. All is well and wonderful. Life is even richer now as I contemplate the activities that I took for granted but never will again! Pain relief is my immediate goal and it is getting better each day. I am so fortunate to have my loving husband waiting on me hand and foot 🙂 and my son and daughter of course have been wonderful as well.
Life is still good!
