Setbacks from my Accident

Thursday, July 06, 2017

Last July today i was on a high, I had just finished physical therapy for my SI Joint and i was getting active,dropping weight and feeling great. Then the worst possible thing happened on July 7 to give me a major setback - I was in a car accident which left me with two fractured vertebrae and in a back brace from July to November. I gained 20 lbs and it took me months to recover my strength, till I was able to get back to normal activity and not feel tired and achy every day. I still need to get the weight off and when i tried my class doing exercises down on the mat i was met with intense pain ( I did have an emotional breakdown briefly- I just hate being that vulnerable and feeling that kind of pain after I worked so hard to overcome). I don't want to seem like a baby and not be able to do much and I just want to lose this weight I gained and be normal again. Right now I'm feeling depressed this whole accident changed my life for the worse and yes I am improved by alot but I got all this weight that I gained and i can't seem to lose it, I'm stuck at 20-30 lbs on the machines and anytime i try something new or to push myself I end up in pain its like I can't seem to win. Sorry for this being so long I'm just dealing with all this and I guess I pushed it aside trying not to get depressed this last year as I focused on recover and now that I'm healed all the emotional stuff is coming up.

    So sorry about your back pain. Look up exercises that helps back injuries on the internet. Maybe you can find something that don't hurt. You can do this! I have 3 herniated disc. Never do floor exercises any more. I walk or do standing routines.
