#ChronicPain and my dreams
I started working out back in August. I love it. It’s fun to work out. It’s fun to see myself get stronger.
I’m lucky. My chronic pain isn’t nearly as bad as a lot of others have it. I’m still able to lift weights and run. Most movements feel good or at the very least don’t feel worse.
But I have a permanent injury in my left shoulder. So movements that involve my shoulder or pecs can cause flare ups.
The pain is annoying. But the worse thing is that I don’t know if I’ll achieve my dreams. I want to get really good at weightlifting and be super fit. What if my body limits me?
I know I’m lucky to even be able to work out with chronic pain. But I hate the idea that my body could limit me or stop me.
