Day 309: 365 Grateful, grief

I’m already dreading Friday…6 years to the day and the first same day of the week my mom died by suicide.

I may always ask why, but I have come to know she was in pain from arthritis and depression. Her brother and mom both died by suicide I imagine by more complicated mental health conditions. I don’t blame her…but I miss her so much. I am glad she isn’t in pain.

I’m grateful she was my mother and I am often reminded about what a great legacy she left.

Day 278: 365 Grateful, chronic

This July I acquired a pain in my hip flexor-groin area. I have been attending PT 1-2 times a week since and we haven’t been able to remedy it. I tried a 2 mile run as prescribed which felt ok until I went down a small hill. It hurts more now that I have stopped and cooled down. Perplexed.

Day 43: 365 Grateful, running

I am grateful for running. I can do it anywhere…and it’s free!

I have wanted to enjoy running (for a really long time). This past spring was the first season I was able to run without pain. I have always had left foot/arch pain when I run more then 1/2 mile straight. I am not sure what has helped…religiously going to my chiropractor, orthotics, easing myself into distances, shoes? Not really sure.

Went for a 2 mile run today since before our snow and cold snap. A bit of a sore arch but manageable!
