Coping with Chronic/Debilitating Injuries and Health

Dealing with chronic and debilitating injuries and health is one of the most demoralizing things a person can experience. 

Being able to walk up the stairs, push in the clutch, hold a cup or lift up a basket of laundry can become nearly insurmountable tasks and the ubiquitous presence of the tasks in daily routine makes it so that we can’t ignore our injuries. We feel broken and for some of us, we might even begin to be defined by our peers as broken. Our identity shifts.

For some of us, as soon as we’re robbed of our freedom to move, our freedom to do, we knowledge seek and work away at the problem with painstaking determination.

But, some of us don’t even have a place to start.

It’s not about laziness or a lack of motivation; it’s about not knowing.

Knowing that we can do something about our health, and having enough knowledge to seek out answers as to what it is exactly that we can do, is a tremendous blessing.

Regardless of who you are: don’t be afraid to take on knowledge from different spheres. Try it on, discard what doesn’t work for you, and search out new sources of data.

You are, of course, welcome to accept your limitations and your body as it is.

But, if any of you rejects the limitations that you’re facing, don’t be afraid to reach out.

We’re all here, wanting to help you be the you that you want to be.
