I am SO much more clear-headed since quitting Vicodin cold turkey on Saturday. I woke up and felt like the *pain* was manageable. I’m still on the Motrin for now but that’s just security for the next few days.
The doctor is either psychic or experienced. He promised my recovery would speed up after a week and boy was he right! I even attempted some very mellow yoga stretches last night.
I’ve been to the barn the last two days and am so happy to be getting back to my routine. Still baby steps but at least in the right direction.
Running, swimming and biking along with actually getting on the horse are still a ways out but I can feel it’s going to be possible. I was feeling a little hopeless there for a while, but perhaps some of that was the Vicodin too.
It’s been 11 days since my last workout. Hmmm, I’m either going to really rested or out of shape. Anyone want to take dibs? I’m hoping for rested.
