When I was pregnant with my third child, I had horrible back pain. I remember thinking, “Nothing could be more painful than this!” But, of course, two prior birthing experiences reminded me that labor would be much more painful than the back pain I was having!
These past few days, I’ve been having pain in my right breast. One evening, it hurt so bad that it felt like my body had shut down. I was over my parents’ house and just couldn’t get warm. I was so cold that I turned the heat up in the playroom so high that my siblings became irritable. “It’s too damn hot in here, Liza!” yelled my brother as he gave me his thick wool sweater. Slowly, others followed suit, and soon I was alone.
As much pain as I was in, I couldn’t take my mind off of the perceived pain I would be in after surgery. I let myself experience emotional pain, and as my colleague Alice C. witnessed, I was back to telling perky boobie jokes the next day.
So, I’m off my workout schedule until this pain clears. How are others doing with their training??
