Good Afternoon All~
After sitting basically for 2 years ( third surgery this past Sept)and hurting as badly as I did to start with, I decided to become pro-active in doing something to help..I guess I became angry at the idea that (at my age) I had nothing to look forward to but a life full of pain...that I finally got up and decided to try and find a way to help. I discovered water aeroebics (sp) and started last week. The first time my back locked up in the water and I didn't think I could get out of the pool. I had only been in there for 30 minutes of the hour class and although I couldn't do everything everyone else was doing I felt good just to be there. Well...that was a week ago today-today, I was there the whole hour without any problems...I am so excited and hopeful for the first time in years! Although the pain is excruciating I decided that if I was going to hurt it was going to be for a reason. I am taking it slow and only doing what I am capible of doing..but, I am doing!
