Day 19 of Giving Thanks


Day 19 of a month of giving thanks............

.............today I am thankful for a healthy body.

Last year at this time, I was dealing with a bulging disc in my lower back and with it, a horrible case of sciatica. I had never felt such pain. It dragged on for 8 weeks (the sciatica) and the back pain was present for 12 weeks.  I thank the Lord for good quality chiropractic care that incorporated physical therapy, life style changes (adding certain foods to reduce inflammation, working out on a fitness ball, learning core exercises) and now I am having no issues!!

I never want to take my health for granted.

Thanking Him for giving me good health and a stronger back and the wisdom to know what I can and cannot do regarding lifting things, certain movements, etc.

What are you thankful for  today??

I'm glad that you are now able to live pain free, Faith! I think sometimes we do take our health for granted. I know I have in the past.

Today I am thankful for food. Oh...and I am curious...what foods did you add to your diet to reduce inflammation?

Glad you're feeling better. I can't wait to be pain free some day. Maybe that won't happen til Heaven. I am currently going to physical therapy, they think it's a hip problem causing my left leg to be longer and the hip thing also is pressing against nerves. I can't sit or stand for too long or walk without pain. I have meds, muscle relaxers and physical therapy which REALLY seems to be helping so I am thankful for my Physical Therapist.
