Another day another obstacle crushed!

Hey all, I hope this is appropriate to post here but I just wanted to do a little horn tooting and thought you'd all get it :)

So anywho, I have hip dysplasia in both hips and degenerative disc disease in my lower spine and just oh so many more wonderful pain causing issues! Since I no longer know what life without pain is I use to wallow pretty badly. I was diagnosed with a lot of this in my early twenties and pretty much just gave up. Gained a ton of weight, and as a 5'1 tall woman i got up to 260 pounds. In July of 2021 at 37 years old I finally decided to get up and start living again for so many reasons (though that's a much longer story) and at my last weigh-in I was 160. Today, even though the pain was at a solid 7, I pushed passed my normal failing point and completed a 7 mile walk. Currently of course I'm wrapped in a heating pad and using all my other soothing tactics and everything hurts but at the same time? I feel amazing! #HipDysplasia #ChronicSpinePain #warrior
