priorities, perspective, call it what you will.

As most of you know I'm home this week recovering from my collar bone surgery. Things are going great BTW.

Today I had a therapy appointment, holy that man puts a hurtin on me.

After the appointment the therapist tells me there is a deep tissue massage guy they send a lot of their patients to and he thinks a couple appointments would help. My first comment was "Sure why not, insurance is buying."
The he tells me that the guy doesn't take insurance. Hmm... I thought, how much is it and how beneficial will it really be, do i really NEED this.. Then I realized something. At this time my car is in for routine service, 100,000 miles. I want it to last me until I retire from the military so I'm spending about $1100 on it. I could do a lot of the work but I just don't want to deal with it. If I'm spending 1100 dollars on my car so I get five to six more years out if it, why the am i questioning spending 100-200 dollars on a couple deep tissue massages that come highly recommended from people that have taken great care of me so far.

SO yeah, I'll foot the bill for a couple deep tissue massages to help ensure my health.


On another note, I saw number of bikes out riding, all but two cruisers were wearing helmets and nobody was acting stupid! We always call out idiots so I thought I would say something nice. (did I really just do that?)

Remember people, you will own a number of cars, motorcycles, and maybe even houses but you really only get one YOU.

Have a good day,
Mike

It really is bewildering how we lose perspective sometimes.

Good luck with the collar bone

My therapy is pretty aggressive IMO. I was light headed a couple times today from the stretching. I am confident that I will be near good as new when I am done. When I broke my wrist they said I may never do pushups again, at the time I was seeing starts trying to do six. The wrist is good as new today!

We got a guy over here called Brian Simpson or the legendary "Bone Doctor" as he's known.
His whole ethic seems to be "No Pain. No Gain",
increase the blood flow, muscle stimulation etc.
He works miracles but it's very very hard :/:

my recovery from shoulder surgery was very similar. I hated that chair so much, but I stayed in it. I would yell at it "you can't make me getup! I own you!"
eventually, it made me get up. eventually I returned it to the therapist after I beat it.
Good luck! you can do it.

keep up the good work, my therapy after my accident was also very painful and tiring. I couldn't walk much and the therapist still made me walk and go up and down stairs, excersice with my back etc, is all worth it. I was fine just before my other two surgeries so now i am recovering from the last two but i don't need therapy since there was no trauma it was just to connect me back to normal.

do you even know what bathhouse is?


I had a surgery on my knee and the physical therapy was a must and it was covered by the ins. So maybe you can get another therapist if you want to save that 100-200? I donno, just letting you know that not all therapy is not covered.

my friend had broken collar bone form a moto accident and i had a seperated shoulder from my track crash a while back. biggest thing is muscle atrophy that we both had. i saw a message therapist after a rugby injury (knee and lower back) and it helped get some knots out of my muscles from not being able to move.

go ahead and do it. recovery is a long road if you were active like i was.
