Four years post op today!
It’s been a rough couple of months for me. I’ve been dealing with a back injury that, on top of being very painful, has kept me out of the gym. This, consequently, has brought on a heaping plate of dysphoria. This type of dysphoria is something I really thought I’d overcome, so it’s been unexpected and unpleasant to have it rear its head again.
I’ve been trying my best to go to gratitude though, because I know I still have a lot to be thankful for.
The back pain and dysphoria have been reminding me how I felt before surgery, and reaffirming how absolutely necessary it was for me.
I’m extremely lucky not only to have had access to surgery, but to be able to choose the surgeon I wanted.
Medical interventions aren’t for everyone, but I’m glad I realized this was something I needed.
Even if I’ve lost a lot of muscle mass, I’m thankful every day for this chest.
