Wonderful and Horrible At The Same Time

Hello everyone. I appreciate your patience during this long gap with no post. What? Oh no, I haven't given up on blogging, I have just been too busy mentally to think of anything to write about. I have had to focus my attention on classes. Oh, you thought that chair killed me? No, lol, it is still tucked away in the corner, well out of the path I walk.

Anyways, I have two bits of news that are both wonderful and horrible at the same time. *Grins* First off, school. Only 2 weeks left of this term. This is wonderful because I am almost done with this icky politics class, but horrible because the last 2 weeks always seem to take forever. I want to be done with it NOW! I am hate this class. Next term, however, looks to be more interesting, with 2 accounting classes, and the 3rd being Sociology. I am really hoping that 3rd class is interesting. It is so much easier to do the writing when the material intrigues me.

Ok, enough with school stuff, you say. I agree, listening to me complain about classes is probably boring for you. On to the second bit of news then. My back pain. No, it hasn't gone away, but the doctor I have been seeing has done more than just toss a prescription at me for the pain. She sent me for x-rays to see if there was a problem there. Turns our my bones look great. She said there are no signs of osteoporosis and no fractures. There were a few minor spurs on my spine that could develop a bit of arthritis in the future, but no problems that are causing my pain now. So she says that means it is muscular. She referred me to physical therapy. That is wonderful as maybe with some proper exercises my back will get straightened out and the pain will go away eventually. But at the same time it is horrible, because they are gonna make me stretch in ways I haven't moved in a long time, and that is gonna hurt like hell for awhile.

Personally, I still think the pain is from nerve damage, but I would be delighted to be proven wrong. If this physical therapy doesn't work, I have no idea what the next step will be.

That is pretty much all that is going on with me at the moment. I do plan to get back into posting daily or at least 3 or 4 times a week as soon as this term is over. So if you can hang around for another 2 weeks, there will be more regular posts after that.

As long as you keep a positive mind to both challenges, you'll be able to conquer anything.
So never give up, and always look for the positives in both situations... Or any situation that you may come across, and the possibilities will be endless.
Never give up on anything you want to accomplish.
In a sense, you're a great inspiration, and a one of a kind hero!!

Spwee! Go Ruburt! xD
Congrats on everything! You've succeeded lots of things others have failed at. It's great to hear that you're doing really good in your classes and that you are going to get some therapy in.
Therapy sounds like it would really suck, but it looks like it would help you move around easier of you do it. The more you stretch your muscles out, the better I think you will be able to get around with lesser pain than before. That's by my point of view though.
I'm VERY glad that you've gotten this far. I'll do my best to get a 4.0 GPA in college as you have done. Something both of my brothers haven't been able to do, but one got really close with one B. xD
I wouldn't be surprised if you were everyone's role model. You are the nicest and smartest person that I have ever known, you'll always be in my prayers every night. Heck why not, I'll pray the Nine Day Novena for you. :) And I might get some roses from it...
Yeah, you can tell this is a long comment. Well, since Ru posted a longer one this time, I guess I should match that with a long comment as well. =D

Ru said...

Ru, you're the reason I feel comfortable with going back to school! If you can do it, I can do it, too, right? Thanks for being you, honestly =D

Bluerose said...

I am so glad to hear that you are finally having something done for your back. You have suffered long enough and I am praying the therapy will work. It may feel like, you can't go on with the therapy, if it hurts too bad, just don't give up!

Also Congrat's on your school work!

Sweetie said...

Heck why not, I'll pray the Nine Day Novena for you.

o.O Kimmeh whats that?! XD

Ru is a role model! Me and you will be like her in another few years..hopefully xD If we dont go off the rails ;D

Dizz said...

O.O Ru, for your sake, I hope you get proven wrong too. XD I'd like nothing better then to see you free of that pain. I've had therapy myself, but it was for joint issues. It did help, so I hope it helps you in your endevours.

As for college, you wouldn't happen to have some notes laying around that dear old dizz could gander at, now would you? lol. Congrats on your work. I know it's not easy. Ru Rocks. That's all there is to it. ^^
