Well, on Wednesday morning I was preparing myself to have X-Rays and a MRI per what the receptionist told me when I made my doctor appointment for Tria Orthopedics in Bloomington on Monday.
Good news first:
NO MRIs or X-RAYS!
I was really kind of nervous about it because it started getting my brain reeling about what could possibly be wrong instead of reminding myself it couldn’t be that bad. But we always let our minds get the best of us, right? So after talking to the nurse and doctor, getting poked, prodded, doing lunges, testing the strength of my gluts, legs, knees and so forth, I felt so relieved. I have a problem, but it can be fixed with the aid of a little physical therapy!
So, I have my first appointment on Friday and look forward to reporting back. Overall, I was incredibly pleased with my doctor and appointment. On top of that, when I went to the store after to buy a some inserts of my shoes, the woman working in the store was incredibly helpful and nice.
I thought it would be very smart to try running Wednesday evening, too. It wasn’t. It became painful after a while. I really can’t wait to shed a few pounds. I feel like a giant elephant when I run. I’m fairly convinced people wonder why the “fat girl” is even bothering to run when I do. I realize I am being incredibly down on myself, but it is what it is.
And on the inside now lies…
Check back soon for a report on my first session of physical therapy!
