I was inspired to post when I read someone sharing about being afraid.
My THR was 10/2/16 and I was TERRIFIED. Totally stuck and consumed with fear of the unknown and what felt like a death sentence of a doctor prescribed sedentary lifestyle and the end of my youth.
I was thrilled to find this site before my surgery and get a glimpse of hope.
The reality is 10 months in i’m probably in the best shape of my life.
I got focused on health and started to regain the things I thought were lost.
I was in constant pain, consumed with fear and basically hopeless about the future.
In the last few months I swam a 4.2 mile open water race, ran a 6:05 mile, and jumped tall buildings in a single bound… maybe not buildings but some tall boxes.
The black cloud of fear is gone.
Its hard to tell anyone not to be afraid, but speaking from experience…. Don’t be afraid.
You can do anything you set your mind to.
You’ve got this !
