One thought on “Mood.

  1. I don’t know you. I don’t really know how I found your site, but I thought I’d post, because I know what going into surgery with a chance to change your life feels like.

    My story is a little bit like yours: high school and college athlete, but my big stop sign came much later in life. I hurt my back in my 30’s, and can no longer run or swim or bike – I can’t sit or stand in one position for more than 15-20 minutes. If I’m in a place where there are no seats, like a museum or an SRO concert, I use a wheelchair. My life is changed, and not for the better.

    I’ve had surgeries to try to fix my problems; no luck, but backs are a tricky thing. But if a surgeon tells you they can fix you, you jump on it, because, darn it, you want your old life back. You have that chance. Use that focus you developed as a kid, and stick to the plan. You go to sleep not knowing what tomorrow will be like, but you’ve got a good team to support you; always keep that in mind.

    Now you just gotta do it. No way out but through. I’ll be watching this space.
