I Did It

I cleaned off my car and went shopping. Without hurting my back. Though I did go to the edge. I'll wait a little while before I get the last 2000 steps. Right now I have 2960. I only need 40 steps for 3000. I'll have that walking out the door or before since I'm eating lunch at my desk. I want to step up the goal to 6000, but it might be too soon, even though I did get over that yesterday. While I was in the store, PT called and I have an appointment for this afternoon already. So that will be good. Baby steps. I'm doing my best to get everything I need done without needing to ask for help. I know there's one person here that would be more than willing to help if I needed it. She took me to the store a couple of days ago. For now, all is good. I'm going to take care of the notifications and then I think it will be time to leave. Have you accomplished something that became difficult that wasn't before? Thanks for reading. The image belongs to me. This is a cute setting on the table in the hallway.

So glad you made it safely back home. You will be ready for your PT appointment later. I have tackled many hurdles in my life and I know the feeling when you are successful. The table looks nice.

Thank you. Yes, I will. I hope it won't be too painful. I know those PT guys and gals, they don't go easy on you. I admire that table every time I walk past it.

@CarolDM I'm sure it will. It didn't seem to be hard on the body, but when I got ready to leave, I had a slight limp. So the once-a-week therapy changed to twice a week.

@just4him PT should make you feel better. I have a similar lamp in what I call my blue Eeyore bedroom.

I love that setting it looks nice, I am glad your back is better and you could do all those steps, SInce the cold weather in Florida my sciatica started hurting again but I found that now since it is warmer and the sun is out if I walk slowly to the closest store and back my sciatica is starting to feel better,

I'm glad it's feeling better. My therapist told me today that motion is lotion. So walking is helping. Thank you. I think it's cute. I wonder how much longer it will be there since they put up all the Valentine's decorations now.

Cutting my toenails is becoming more and more difficult. I hope I can manage it for myself for a bit longer.

Please be careful. Not asking for help is no badge of accomplishment...Ask for help if you need it. However, I am not big on asking for help either.

I do when it becomes necessary. Or I wait until I can do it myself.

Yes, baby steps. It's so nice that you have someone to help if needed. You're a tough broad. Having found ways to keep my mood stable is something I am proud of doing.

Baby steps are the best, then you feel like you can accomplish more than you thought. Glad you got your car cleared without causing yourself more pain. Hope the PT went well for you. I know sometimes they seem to be adding pain to a person instead of taking it away, but it is all part of the process.

Thank you. No pain getting the car cleared. PT went well. The pain wasn't bad when all was said and done. I was limping a little, so I'll be going twice a week.

That's good you were able to do those things without hurting your back! I can never clean my car off without hurting my back in general. That's good you got that call too. Sometimes waiting on calls like that can take some time.

I'm glad you're making progress, but you have to be careful. I have to start training these days. I always leave the beginning.
