I have read some of your posts to try and catch up a little but I sure hope some of you are feeling better.
For those who know, I made my trip to England and spent quality time with my mum who was diagnosed with lung cancer. I celebrated with my grandad on his 90th birthday and he is such an inspiration to me.
I am now back at work and I do feel the pressures of work taking its toll on me. I have recovered well from the hysterectomy, but my back continues to bother me. I saw my surgeon about 2 weeks ago and I have made some good improvement, but he told me I will continue to have low back pain due to the fact that my back is degenarating and because of the curvature of my spine.
I was handling it until I went back to work and just the leaning and bending and pushing and pulling has created quite a bit of pain and the pain has returned down my leg, so I come home and ice every day and just pray it gets better. I know I must try to exercise more to strengthen my back and hopefully that will reduce some of the pain. I have to say I am really disappointed because I felt it was a successful surgery until this last week!! I don't want anyone at work to know I am hurting since I had to take time off at the end of last school year for the surgery.
I know its been a rough few months from my personal trauma and 2 surgeries, I get very tired....but I try so hard to keep up with everything.....sometimes it just gets me down. Hopefully as I continue on this road to recovery it will get better and I will adjust to being back to work. I hope all the teachers out there are having a good week. Take care everyone,
