Today I woke up and felt like I wanted to DO something. I was able to have a long hot shower without the water on my back causing incredible pain, some pain, but bearable compared to the last two and a half weeks.
I ended up also having a kidney infection that caused a whole new level of pain and ickyness but I think I am on the upside now. I think I'm going to venture outside today and go for a short walk where I normally run. It feels like I have not left the apartment in weeks, which isn't true, I've been out every couple of days mostly to get groceries or go to a doctor appt.
I am off work until the end of next week and the insurance company has approved my claim so that is another worry off my plate.
I've also reconnected with an old friend and that has made my mood lighter and also resolved a lot of issues that had brought me down over the Fall/Winter.
Thank you so much for all your kind comments and emails. It really does help to know so many people care.
