See that ^? That is the text equivalent to utter frustration. The last few weeks I have been making progress. I was sure I would be paying for it physically at some point or another. I started work on the entry way and painted a bit. I was a little sore but nothing major. I've been Walking it out on the Wii with some mild discomfort but nothing more. I've even lost a few pounds. Life was good and I was feeling somewhat normal. As close to normal that I can possible get at this point. I won't lie it felt good.
And then I walked into a bench. I totally and completely forgot it was there and walked my left leg right into it. Then I tensed up. The first thing I worried about was my neck. Because of the Chiari, my neck is on the sensitive side. I gave it two hours and thought I was fine. I was pretty happy that I wasn't as fragile as I thought I was. Only to wake up in the morning in pain. The pain was what woke me up. My neck and my shoulders were killing me. I conceded to my body and spend the day on the couch. Clover was really good while I rested.
Today there is some improvement but I am still pretty sore. I just feel frustrated because a bench took me out. I will have to wait a few days before normal activities can resume and a few more after that to resume extra activities. For now all I can do is listen to my body and not push myself. As much as I want to get back to normal. Whatever normal is.
