Too Young to be Old, Too Old to Start Over
I’ve made a living in one specialized field my entire working career, and today life as I know it has come to a screeching halt.
An MRI revealed a job related lumbar spine & disk injury from years of overwork and excess lifting. Prognosis is favorable with six to eight weeks of rehab therapy, but there will need to be critical lifestyle changes.
I’ve lost the battle after 36 years in my profession, and I can’t even begin to explain how difficult it is to let go of who I am this late in life. There are changes in my future and there will be sacrifices indeed. For now, just one day at a time.
Life is an obstacle course of challenges, tests, and choices, it’s how we accept them all that strengthens our character. – amy elizabeth
