What if I am able to understand my pain now, and not fear it but embrace it?
I am trying everything: PT, TENS, hold-cold therapy, pills, anti-inflammatory creams, energy work, chiropractor sessions, acupuncture, acupressure, hot baths with magnesium salts. I would to anything to make the pain go away. I am starting to understand my pain and I think the upcoming Colorado training will be a good test.
Calling my guide now and telling him about my final decision: there is no doubt that I am climbing the Everest!
