Do you get discouraged when you’re told all that’s wrong with your body?
Last week. I had the easiest spinal tap ever (I’ve had 20-something!) and am still glowing about it.
Back in October, I had the spinal tap from hell. It took almost 2 ½ hours, and it was excruciating. Even my doctor was so discouraged by what I went through. He explained that my scoliosis inevitably got worse and didn’t know how much longer these spinal taps would work.
So he sent me to interventional radiology this time around rather than the OR. I guess they have fancier equipment there. The doctor took all sorts of images and a CT scan of my spine. And literally within 5 minutes, he got the needle in the correct spot. It was SO quick and completely painless.
I was shocked and so relieved by how easy it was. But honestly, what was the most refreshing was that something finally went right with my body. I’m so used to hearing everything that’s wrong with it that it was an absolute breath of fresh air for something actually to work out in my body’s favor.
Do you get discouraged when you’re told all that’s wrong with your body? Does it make the wins that much sweeter?
