There’s always something.

As some of you already know, I’ve been mostly walking since this past summer. I was diagnosed with sciatica and along with walking being good for mental health, it also helps alleviate the sciatica pain.
Well, I underwent a MRI test last week and learned yesterday that I have 2 herniated discs. I’m extremely disappointed, frustrated, sad, tired of the pain, etc. for many reasons. Is there anyone else out there who has a similar issue and still exercises? I’m trying my damndest to not say “f*** this” and give up altogether, but it seems like 1 step forward and 10 steps back when it comes to my health.
On a “positive” note (I guess 😒), my cholesterol levels are great and no longer in the danger zone, thanks to diet and physical activity (mostly walking). I’ve also lost a few pounds; not exactly sure how many, though, because I rarely track it.
