Trying to overcome.

Trying to overcome! Now how many of us have tried to overcome something in our life time? For me, murphy's law, it seems life is a challenge almost weekly. I stopped asking the question, what next because I kind of think I was bringing on my own bad luck. I never ask why me, because I know everything happens for a reason. Though I may not understand that reason now, one day I will. I always tell my children what doesn't keep us down or kill us only makes us stronger and wiser.

My murphy's law seems to have stayed with me for sometime now when it comes to my back. I fell back on Feb 13th 2008 when walking into work and my back injury seems to have decided to stay from that fall. I am trying so hard to overcome my daily pain, my struggle to walk while in pain and also to over come my fear of falling which for a while seemed to be a weekly event. Overcoming this has been difficult, I do not have insurance, but I am a lucky one because my local hospital does offer a free charity program which is helping me. Yes this is embarrassing to have to get charity help but my life and well being is so much more important then what any person may say about me.

My challenge to overcome this daily pain has me receiving pain shots in my back...which haven't helped so far. I receive therapy 3 times a week which is helping a little. Therapy has taught me excerises to help strengthen my lower back and abdomin. It has helped me over come my fear of falling...only fell once since starting therapy. It is slowly giving me some relief in my back as long as I keep up with it and with my medications. Overcoming this has been difficult and a very long road, I have my steps forward and my steps backwards, but I am determined to feel better once again.

If you have something to over come whether it would be your health,pain, life and or addiction, anything, do not give up you can overcome it. Time, patience and determination is what it takes. I will over come all of my set backs and health issues because I will not give up.

Determination - the act of coming to a decision or of fixing or settling a purpose decided;
settled; resolved.

Overcome - to get the better of in a struggle or conflict; conquer; defeat to prevail over

When I was researching a name for my blog, I thought of "Such is Life". When I looked it up I found this as the meaning, "An acceptance of the unpredictable fortunes of existence, often spoken with an air of weary resignation". I couldn't help but think yup, that's how life seems to be! But I also like the old "When God closes a door, he open a window" thing too! Being positive is also sooo important--you're doing great!

My dad used to say "such is life" all the time!

Overcoming pain or other health problems is really hard, but you have a great attitude! Stay positive!
