I am a survivor of an almost fatal motor vehicle accident while riding as a passenger with my GOD mother, looking back in time I had no idea my life was in jeopardy. The worst scenario ever a semi truck smashed into the passenger door where I was sitting. Today my full-time job is to pray and believe GOD will heal my body and alleviate the chronic insane nerve pain, joint pain, back pain, numbness, deliberating pain the semi truck left me with. Walking with GOD is the only way I can navigate life as I am not strong enough to do this walk without Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior, life is just too difficult to navigate without GOD.
I honestly and transparently share my life experience to help not whine or complain as my husband and I live our life with a grateful attitude to GOD. Everyone has something difficult in their life and we fully understand some people have more trauma and tests than others. I share my blog to give all the credit to Jesus Christ our Lord and savior, provide hope, information and encouragement in the pursuit of health, love, and happiness in this thing called life we all navigate daily. Never give up, never stop working towards excellence in your life as we get no more and no less than the amount of effort “work” placed into our life. Trust GOD for all things.
Living with a humble and grateful attitude:
I am forever grateful to GOD in Jesus Christ name as I know I could have died and almost died after the accident. I understand I could have lost my legs easily as eight ribs broke, lung collapsed, grade V kidney tear, pelvis shattered 3 large screws surgically installed to give me the ability to walk again. Nerve pain is painful and causes sleep deprivation we continue to pray for a complete healing. Honestly my husband and myself could have never endured this pain and suffering and loss without Jesus Christ as our LORD and Savior in combination with the bible for faith and healing.
Exercise is the key to getting well but exercise can cause more pain so our mind says no more. Sitting and not moving causes pain it imperative to get into a physical exercise program now while you are healthy. I was physically fit from riding my horse and mammoth donkey, think of staying healthy as a savings account for your life as exercise is medicine.
Doctors use a pain scale from 1-10 they ask what is your pain today? I have come to accept my full-time job is to try to alleviate pain, get physically strong again, be able to sleep more than five hours a night, smile and laugh more. Pain robs the person inside of us who is full of joy and happiness, as pain is very difficult to talk about, difficult for people to understand and can make life frustrating. No medical device can measure the amount of pain the human or animal is in. We must be able to have empathy and see when a living being is in pain, we must be bold and do our best to stop pain and abuse of humans and animals.
Walking on water (place a float around my waist) seems to be helping with less pain in the water still suffer from extreme pain out of the water mostly at night when trying to sleep. Here is a cute video of a doggie doing physical therapy and playing at the same time. Wondering if water physical therapy can help you or your loved one? Water therapy benefits
Do you have any stories of water physical therapy you would like to share?
GOD bless you and your family two and four-legged!
