Today is the day I start my three month journey through spinal therapy. A lot of people have asked what exactly that consists of, so I want to take the time to explain a bit.
Basically, just like physical therapy, my therapists will use release tactics, pressure point therapy, etc. and will also supervise me "working out" (if you want to call it that) on machines that will specifically strengthen my spine.
I've been experiencing a lot of anxiety over today and the next 6-8 weeks, at least. My doctor said that they tend to be painful. In other words, things have to get worse before they can get better.
Honestly, those are NOT the words that are going to make me want to try something. I definitely think it would be awesome to have this pain go away completely... On its own. ;) But, because that's not realistic, I'm going to fight through these next weeks and I'm going to do it with a smile on my face and hope in my heart.
I'm holding onto what God has said about health and I'm taking hold of the courage and confidence I have in my faith...
2 Timothy 1:7~ For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline.
Joshua 1:9~ Be strong and courageous; do not be frightened or dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.
Hebrews 15:5~ For the Lord has said, "Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you."
Jeremiah 30:17~ "For I will restore you to health," declares the Lord, "of your wounds I will heal you."
I'm focusing on thriving, not just surviving.
