Today I am feeling better. Whatever Dr. Whittaker did is allowing me to stretch my hips and quads where I was unable to before. As the day progresses, I am feeling less of a pinch in the hip socket…a huge relief.
On the one hand, I’m so happy I could kiss a sunset pig, as Joni Mitchell would say, but part of me is a little reluctant to get excited. I have a goal to be able to run by the new year, and that very well could happen now.
When something has been sore for so long, it gets hard to imagine that it would just suddenly clear up. You hope and hope that it will, but chronic pain doesn’t naturally inspire that sort of optimism.
But why couldn’t it just miraculously heal? Maybe it can. Maybe it is.
I’m just happy to see some results.
