I just wanted to post that today, despite the severe pain, was a pretty good day. It was very productive, and I was actually able to focus long enough to teach effectively all day.
I also had a GREAT session with my T yesterday. I left feeling like we really accomplished some things that I/we've been working on for months (and years) and, dare I say it, energized! I've been in a good mood every since.
Now I'm off to bed because I am exhausted....
I love my job :)
