@brightonresort was awesome today! i totally cried tears of sheer absolute joy! I have missed snowboarding so much and can't wait until I have more muscle and endurance to shred longer, harder and start airing and spinning again! I was in shock with how much I was able to move my neck today, each day I am gaining more movement back! This injury is fling to be behind me soon! Thanks @paraglidingpan for filming me and being my shred buddy! #brightonresort
Today was glorious with my main squeeze @paraglidingpan up at #brightonresort ! So much powder! My nerves have been remaining unpinched, the myofacial knots are getting smaller and I feel like everything that was taken from me is finally being given back! I am still in a bit of shock at how manageable my pain has become in the past week, Like a fairy wand was waved over me. I have a long road to gain back quite a bit of weight and muscle and will be in a constant state of sore muscles for a while, but I am up for that challenge and so ready to not spend all day laying in bed anymore. So stay away pinched nerves, please never return again! Ever!
And then my soul saw you and it kind of went “Oh there you are,I’ve been looking for you” Painted this for my Valentine ❤@paraglidingpan he has been my rock the past 16 months while I have been healing, it hasn't been the funnest times we have had but he has made a huge effort to help me find fun in my limitations and art was one of them. Life had to slow way down and we have been finding new things we love in each other and the world through it all.
This guy makes sure I get out everyday and move. The bone spurs in his back have forced him to slow down and walk more. His running days are over but we are finding joy in strolling around and finding new interesting places to walk. Slow and steady. Loving every moment with our fur baby.
My body has been healing and dealing with extreme high pain for almost 16 months. I had a really bad flare up in January during my trip to Seattle and spent 10 days literally laying in bed when I got home. It was awful and I started to get really down and frustrated, how much longer is this going to go on? But then something changed and as the flare up was starting to fade instead of going to a level 7 pain and sitting there it started to lessen to a 4-5, something I hadn't felt in 16 months! My brain feels free from intense pain for the first time in so long. My left arm and hand is functioning and the muscles are firing correctly, another huge YAY!. The doctor believes my impinged nerves have released and we are on the right track. So as of right now I will not be needing the nerve blocking surgery (YAY!) so fingers crossed it will stay that way. I have a lot of hard work ahead of me to turn this weak, underweight body back into an athlete's body but I am motivated and beyond ready to be at this step! Thanks for all your positive messages and gifts. Huge thanks to my man Billy who has done so very much to make sure I am home healing and not stressing on money, bills or anything.
Life has slowed way down for me the past year and a half and I have had to learn to fill the high amount of down time. Tv shows and movies help for a while and some days it is all I can do. So I started watching YouTube art tutorials and then billy got me art supplies and I finally found something good for my brain. I have learned how to do most of this laying down with my knees up as my easel. So grateful for art and creativity!
Yesterday I decided to do a therapy painting. I call it "The greiving pixie" The past 16 months greiving my gramma's passing and recovering from the car accident have been pretty tough. There are times I just couldn't get out of bed or stop crying and the darkness just wanted to swallow me whole. Heart pain and body pain. But with the help of Billy, Blu and my family, I feel I have built some keys to move me into the brightness. I am working so hard everyday to grow and become stronger.

@bludogthepitbull looking so dapper in his sweater. Its been a rough year for blu. He has been dealing with bone spurs in his back and we are finally finding his new excercise regimine and medicine amounts. We do our best to keep him warm as the cold has come in and found these awesome sweaters that he loves to be in. He sleeps in them also. Hes been such a good buddy to me as I have had to slow life way down and spend most of my time laying at home healing and hes had to slow down so he can heal also. He just makes my heart melt and keeps me moving. Between him and billy I always have someone there for me.
