Week 1 - Day 2/Day 3

Day 2 was the first day of the warm salt water therapy pool.  It felt nice.  I have to tell ya I was really tired after 45 minutes of moving though.  Getting dressed took me FOREVER!  Gee I am slow!  Then it was time to bounce on a ball.  I think I might be the only person that can have super bad posture on an exercise ball.  I was about to roll right off that thing.  LUNCH TIME!!  Then it was topic time.  Our topic today... Values.  Interesting.  We learned that values are usually never reached but are ongoing.  It is usually what you want to be remembered for.  What is depressing for someone with chronic pain is THAT can often become (seem what someone may) remember someone for.  That's all I got for now.  Then it was more learning about relaxation then relaxing but that's ok.  There was a cute video about pain from Australia.

Day 3 - Today was the a LOOONG day.  I am just going to need to face this program as my new normal.  Pain along with exercise, fatigue and ignoring how I feel... Weeee!  At least that is how I left feeling today.  I think that this is still going to a be a beneficial program, but I get so tired of pulling myself up by my bootstraps.  When one looks at the big picture, that is what life is all about.... falling down and getting back up until you fall down for that one last time.  It really does no good complaining about ones pain or discomfort.  Someone will always have it worse, we all know that.  We logically know we don't want to be them.  4 days until Monday.
