Hello Blender Peeps!
I just finished my second to last week of physical therapy. It realy has done so much for me and I really have learned so much about my body. As I have said the biggest thing I need to do is take things slowly and go little by little.
Something I will say is that I don't have fibromyalgia or arthritis. I don't have a lot of the symptoms that most people have maybe little very few but not much. I still don't necessarily have a diagnosis but still trying to figure it out. I'm going to talk to the "specialist" I went to who recommended physical therapy for me and see if he can help me out and do more for whatever condition I may have. Physical therapy has done wonders and way more than I thought. It's helped me learn so much and I have been able to do more than when I first started. It's a baby step in the right direction which is good but I'm going to need to do more. My therapist says I NEED to advocate for myself and figure out what's wrong and either fix it or work with it to keel moving in life. That's what I plan on doing and hopefully I can find more people (like her) who are helping me go in the right direction. If any of you guys have any tips, advice, recommendations, experiences like this or similar or know anyone who has please feel free to share. I feel like I could use all the help I can get. My life is going to be on pause for quite a bit longer. It's better that than it gets worse which it isn't so that's good.
Well anyway enough about that. I just had to get all that off my chest. I really do want my body to get as better as it can get to the point where I'm not too limited and can do things to as where I was before all this. I'm still learning what I can and still need to figure out who to go to. It's a little frustrating but as I said physical therapy is the best thing that's happened for me so far thank GOD.
Today I have improved even more. My balance has gotten better especially on my right leg. My therapist was really proud of the progress I have been making. She said I was doing so well that she needed to make it harder. So I got to balance on another thing I've never used before. A...a...uhh...🤔...I can't exactly remember what it's called. I think it's called a Bosu Ball. It was difficult balancing on that thing let me tell you. The challenge was fun though.
I even used a I think it's called a "Twist-and-Grip Flexi Bar". I would put a picture but my phone isn't letting me. Hopefully some of you know what I'm talking about. It always feel like I'm riding a motorcycle using it. I hold it in front of me with both hands and twist it forward and backward. I'm going to try and by myself one to keep my wrists strengthened.
I'm planning on trying out another workout tomorrow. So hopefully that goes well. I'm going to modify as needed.
Thank you for reading and apologies if my thoughts are all over the place.
Have a Blessed night/day (it's nighttime where I am)!
