Not alarming, but disappointing. Seems I have a problem that may significantly limit my mobility in years to come. Then again it may not. All indicators say it will and should be already. The unknown has been rattling around in my head all day.
This is not my first disappointment in life. Far from it. Yet I am still impacted by it. Today was a tough day. I exercised as much of my healthy thinking as possible which certainly made the day far better than it would have been at the trough of my worst thinking habits years ago.
The Doctor did say that he was amazed that I could be as active as I am given my condition. And the fact that the condition was only accidentally discovered in an x-ray of something else, was indication that although it didn’t look good, the condition has not impacted my health or mobility much yet.
And there is every chance that the damage can be held at the level it currently is and not deteriorate further. But there are not guarantees. I have to admit, I am a little scared. I am not going all-in on he fear thing, but it is malingering.
So my question is this, “what would you do with disappointing medical news”? News that threatens some of your activities you enjoy a great deal and hoped to continue for years to come? News that threatens some of your dreams for the future?
I know what I would do… and I am doing it and getting positive results. But that is me. I am interested in learning more ways to deal with life’s issues. What would you do?
