Done! done! And done! What’s that you ask? Not my physical therapy program just yet (yup, the ‘eeesh’ continues…) but below you’ll see that after searching the virtual world, I can write ‘done!’ on my to do list having found my visual motivation for the next 6 weeks! Is this something that you do too? I encourage you to try it! There’s so much beauty in the search - not to mention inspiration! At times I can hardly narrow it down! Not knowing whether to go with words or an image for this particular program, I went with a mix of both to arrive at this:
On a more personal level, your incredibly thoughtful comments, tweets, and emails really inspired me to wake up and chase the hope that my dream of relief is soon to become a reality. PLEASE keep the communication coming!
I’m not gonna lie to you, I was horribly sore (not to mention more than a little grumpy - sorry, Debs!) when woken this morning. Moreover, I was most certainly not in the mood to continue ‘barreling through’ on this 6 week physical therapy program for my furious nerves to be put back in their place!
Over breakfast however, I opened my computer and almost immediately teared up at your many words of encouragement. WOW! Overwhelming to say the least! It’s amazing to feel such a genuine sense of support and strong connection from many who are, for the most part, strangers. It’s just… wow!!! I mean, had you told me before my accident how kind so many in this world are capable of being, I almost don’t think I would have believed you.
It’s a bizarre blessing that often comes when faced with trauma, not to mention a horrifying & incurable medical diagnosis (for example: CRPS/RSD) - but I’ve been ‘fortunate enough’ to learn the important lesson that there is indeed both joy and beauty in every-teeny-tiny-little-moment, oddly enough… even in the struggles. Obviously, I regret that I had to figure this out in somewhat of a hard way! But, how lucky that I was given the opportunity early on in life to realize that I must not waste a moment of time while I’m feeling well, and that I must always be appreciative.
Anyways! THANK YOU!!! I no longer feel so alone in my struggle, especially with this new, challenging treatment. We’re together in this now - and with the strength of your backing, of course, I’m chasing down that dream of relief, and crossing the winning line first :)
I sincerely hope you’re all having a great & pain free day! - Danielle xx
