Tough stretch after injuries plus emotional stress

Thursday, July 12, 2018

emoticon I am struggling...I fell in May and haven't been for a run ever since, damaged a hamstring and exacerbated a long-standing knee injury, also dealing with osteoarthritis in my right great toe. On top of my physical injuries from a fall, my back has been spasming for 2 days now. I am dealing with emotional stress, as well, from school and family issues.

Can I have a few tips on how to get through and over this hump? I realize that life has a tendency to throw us some curveballs.

Thank you!

    Life most certainly can be hard at times.
    I am so sorry you are dealing with all this physical and emotional turmoil.
    There is a team her for exercising with limitations (or something like that) ...maybe you can get some ideas from them.
    Any exercise you can tolerate, even chair yoga or Tai Chi or modified easy yoga should help you physically and emotionally.
    Have you tried meditation for dealing with stress?
    Even 5-10 minutes helps.
    There are many guided meditations on YouTube.
    Please nurture yourself in healthy ways through this rough patch.
    And, always, rock yourself in the cradle of loving kindness (the Buddha).
