When I first got to rehab, I was in so much pain that I could barely walk any distance at all. In fact the first time I tried to walk over to the cafeteria I had to stop half way there due to extreme pain and they had to bring me a wheelchair to get back to my room.
Then little by little and step by step I started walking. Then one day I prayed to my HP and I told myself that I believed in the placebo effect and that it was all mind over matter. I told myself that as long as I stretched and put one foot in front of the other that I could and would be able to walk farther and faster everyday. From that moment on, there was no stopping me. I was walking 2-4 times a day a quarter mile at a time. I still have severe pain but I'm able to better handle it and push through it with stretches and belief in my HP. I'm up to walking a half mile to a mile at a time at 2.5 mph – I'm working hard on increasing those numbers. Please pray for me to have and gain strength as I work on this. Thank you!
Well it's time to go for a walk now – have an awesome weekend!!
