i started.

step one. make it to the pain management centers.

 

i was late. but that's okay.

 

occupational therapy 1:1.

 

day one.

 

then group spirituality.

 

physical therapy 1:1.

 

lunch.

 

education group.

 

and mental health therapy 1:1.

 

It was a long day. Exhausting. Sore. But it was good.

 

Moving, stretching. The beginning of rebuilding my core.

 

Having to re-tell some of my story. I know there's more of that to come.

 

"how did you get to this point?"

 

"you're too young"

 

people looking at me like i'm a victim.

 

i hate that.

 

don't look at me like i'm dying.

 

even if it's true.

 

don't look at me like i'm already dead.

 

cause it's not true.

 

i'm still here.

 

and i'm still worth it.

 

and this is day one,

 

and my quality of life is getting better,

 

2 days a week for 8 weeks.

 

yoga, massage, and so much more,

 

all at my pace.

 

it'll all be okay.

 

it'll all be okay.

 

it'll all,

 

be okay.
