Since finally getting a diagnosis I could actually work with, my pain levels have been significantly reduced.
My son and his girlfriend were here over Christmas and wanted to go downhill skiing. They begged me to go with them, but I'm always hesitant...one fall could set me back for weeks or months, and I just can't afford that. In the end, it was a nice day, the runs were groomed and the sun came out, so I couldn't say no.
I managed to do five or six runs (with hot chocolate breaks in between, of course!!) and came home....it was awesome!!! It was a couple of hours I would not have been able to spend with my hubby and the kids, so it was the highlight of my Christmas holiday!! Yesterday was a tough day....lots of ice, heat and breakthrough meds, but I DID IT. It won't happen every weekend, but it's such a good feeling to do something that you have your heart set on!!
