Life After My Shot

I’ve now been on ice half of the day. My shot this morning went as smoothly as possible. In fact, it was the least painful procedure I can recall. I’ve just gotta keep icing often and resting properly. It’s not easy to stay lying down. But, I know the next 48 hours I have to let my body heal.

My doctor said today he could tell my diet was really reducing my inflammation. That if I continued on this path I won’t need a shot every three months. So, it was encouraging to heat his feedback. He said there’s just too much evidence out there. That there are inflammatory foods and non-inflammatory foods. He said people just don’t realize that the wrong diet fuels their pain. I told him I’ve definitely learned this is so true.

Not being able to use heat or the tub has been difficult. However, these shots have knocked me down way more in the past. I’m not where I want to be, but I’m not where I used to be. Every area of my life has progressed forward. I’ve just got to keep take one step at a time.

“I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” Philippians 4:13
