Quick update

Hey everyone! I want to say "hi" to all my new followers and I'm glad you're here!

I just wanted to write a quick update, as I haven't posted in a while. I am still having back & leg problems, which causes me immense pain, and makes it hard to sit at the computer desk (as I don't have a laptop), so I haven't really felt like getting online to post. I'm actually trying to do this pretty quickly as my back is starting to bother me as I sit here now. Anyway, I start physical therapy next week and will go twice a week for the next 3-4 weeks. The therapist believes that I will respond well to therapy, and I'm hoping it'll help! I have been diagnosed with severe spinal stenosis, which is a narrowing of the spinal cord, which causes the nerve endings to touch areas that they shouldn't and that in turn causes my pain. I actually have a compression of my L5 & S1 vertebrae so that explains a lot of my symptoms. The therapist is hoping that having me in traction during my appointments will help gently pull open the space where the compression is and allow it to heal normally. I'll keep you all updated! Until next time, I hope you all have a great weekend, and welcome Fall with open arms! :) Take care & stay safe!

Later gators,
