I am so grateful for this moment.
My pain level in my lower back has been at a constant 6 with my up/down pain in the 8-9 range for weeks. Every step is a struggle. Getting seated or getting up comes with an insane amount of pain. There's a point when your mind just adjusts to the new normal and you go on.
I awoke today with a new level of pain coming from just about every joint in my tired body. And my lower back was screaming.
