once i am recovered(god willing) by summer time, i will begin training. thank you everyone for supporting me!
i am thinking about not also blogging my journey but possibly putting it on video and maybe sharing my story and what my day consists of through youtube or something....any thoughts/suggestions/ideas?
im really interested in doing some videos of myself as i recover but im not sure what to do exactly....
A few thoughts pop to mind when I hear your story. I have a lot of questions below and not a lot of answers. The answers are yours to find, not mine to give (nor am I qualified to give them)...
Money aside, what does your weekly medical / management routine look like? Obviously you have a chiro and masseuse and some sort of specialist floating around given that you've had an MRI, plus a shrink in the wings.
Are there ways you can improve on this? Do you need more medical support? At a glance you could need to see a neurologist, rheumatologist, occupational therapist, someone specialising in sports medicine, physiotherapist etc... Do you need less medical support? Are the physicians you're seeing skilled or are they just doing the job and that's about it? If they're not meeting your needs, are you doing enough to source new ones? Do you have your desk ergonomically set up? ie. lowerable, foot rest, keyboard and wrist pads, adjustable screen.
And maybe most importantly, have you had a chance to talk to TLO? His insights would eclipse some of the opinions here. Taking advice from people who are successful at their craft will pay off more than taking it from every Tom, Dick and Harry. FWIW my experience is in psychology but I've been around a tonne of doctors and specialists for the last few years due to family illness, but in no way do I profess to be an expert on this topic.
I'm guessing a lot of the above you've already considered, but if not, I hope there is 1or 2 quality questions in there that might help you on a bit.
I'd wish you luck, but you don't need that. Kick some ass mate!
one a side note pongo, you mentioned your experience is in psychology? are you a psychologist? because i know i tense up alot when my games get intense(tlo had same problem) which puts more unecessary stress on my body. can u adress that in any way?
thanks for the kind words my friend! i appreciate the post.
