Well, unfortunately physical therapy hasn’t turned out to be a quick, magical cure for all the pain I’ve been feeling. After Tuesday last week when I was feeling pretty okay, I’ve been on a sharp decline ever since. Last night I didn’t sleep for more than 20 minutes or so all together and today the pain feels just as bad as it did a few weeks ago when I was climbing hills at Washington State.
It’s a real bummer getting your hopes up over and over and over.
My physical therapist (who is WONDERFUL by the way, if you ever need physical therapy go to the Clinic. I’ve gone to two therapists there who are both so sweet, attentive, and genuinely invested in your recovery. That’s not very easy to come by I’ve found) told me that if I’m not starting to see some forward progress by next week I should probably consult with a surgeon. I wasn’t really scared by her saying that. At this point I will do anything it takes to quit feeling like this. It’s really exhausting.
Sorry that this is kind of a downer post. Maybe it’s the lack of sleep, I’m just having trouble being funny or positive about this anymore. Hope your day is going better than mine 🙂
