Each step I take is searing pain. My abductors are sore, my glutes and piriformis are screaming, and my hip flexor is crying. I don't even get pain relieve from any of the cocktail of medicine I have, but I am still taking my anti-inflammatories for fear that I will get worse if I don't take those.
I need to make some changes so I can feel better. I am taking Wednesdays off of work so I work Monday, Tuesday, then a day off, then Thursday, Friday. I felt really refreshed coming to work on Wednesday, but still in pain.
I have been slacking on stretching. I am only stretching twice a day opposed to 5-7 times a day I was doing and I have not been to the gym in weeks. I just feel so exhausted from the pain, but I know the gym is good for me.
Last weekend I laid in bed the whole weekend, and I still felt painful on Monday. I hope this weekend I can relax.
So these are the changes I need to make:
- Eat healthier (I have been eating a lot of sugar lately)
- Go to the gym
- Stretch more
- Rest whenever I have the chance, even if that means not getting as much done
