Going AMA

ok… look.  This is killing me.  I’m gaining weight.  I’m miserable.  I’m unhappy.

I know the doctor said don’t run… and I won’t.  I know the doctor said don’t walk.  And I won’t… much.

I’ve still got another two weeks before I can go see the doctor.  That will put me at 8 weeks since the diagnosis.  Even the doctor said “Don’t run or walk for exercise for 6 weeks”.  So I actually DID follow his advice… right?  He didn’t say “Or until your next appointment”… right?  I can’t help it if he’s busy and can’t see me at the right time…  right?


I guess if I had a cast on my foot to drag around like Quasimodo I would feel better because I would have something physical to remind me what my problem is.  But you can’t put a cast on a pelvis (at least not where mine is broken…).  So, in general, I walk, talk and act normal (I use that term loosely), I just can’t run without getting that “kicked in the groin” feeling.


It IS getting better.  I can cough and sneeze without holding on to something now.  I feel like I might be able to start doing a few situps again soon.  I went for a walk in the woods yesterday with my son.  Nothing strenuous, just a wander around our property and, although I was “muscle weary” in THAT area, I am none the worse for wear this morning.  I didn’t walk with the intention of exercise, just to spend some time with my son.  But the steep hills we live on were tiring.  Which is sad…

Anyway, today I am volunteering at a local 5K race which, hopefully, will lift my spirits a bit.  Seeing old friends, barking encouragement, yelling out mile splits… it should be fun.

BTW:  AMA means “Against Medical Advice”…
