I’m sitting…ok lying here after PT trying to get my body to move but not having much luck. I guess that is to be expected with my first PT session after prolo. I did surprisingly well during therapy but I am definitely feeling it now.
On the Dysautonomia POTS FB page this morning, this status caught my eye:
“It is important that you recognize your progress and take pride in your accomplishments. Share your achievements with others. Brag a little. The recognition and support of those around you is nurturing.” ~Rosemarie Rossetti
This quote was very timely today. For some reason, I have been getting a little down on myself lately. Sometimes, I have to remind myself I didn’t ask for this and it’s not my fault. Every once in a while I find everything catching up to me and taking it’s toll. I desperately want answers to the “big stuff” like going back to work and having kids, and those concrete answers just aren’t there right now. I saw Larry on Tuesday and we talked about the importance of constantly setting smaller goals to help me work towards the bigger goals, so that is what I am working hard on.
That FB status got me thinking. If I had to choose an achievement for today, it would be that I did an hour straight of therapy. This hour allowed me to work all muscles groups while sitting and STANDING. I walked out of therapy on my own two legs to my car that was not parked in a handicap spot. I then stopped at Walgreens to pick a few things up without sitting in a wheelchair. So there you have it~That is my bragging for the day.
Hard work, no wheelchair, and endorphins pumping…. The sun shining through our living room window as I type….The people I have in my life who ARE so nurturing and supportive. I am blessed. It is a great day to be alive.
