Today was a crazy day.

I had a Physical Therapy appointment to see if they could figure out what was happening with my feet, and the cause of all my stress fractures I have been getting. I basically thought that the appointment would be pointless, and that I would just be paying mega bucks for some orthodics in the end anyway. I showed up not really knowing what to expect. I told the physical therapist what I had been experiencing and hoped that she would just push for the orthodics right off the bat.

No such luck.

Instead I got put through tons of tests and to my amazement found out that I walk incorrectly, and need to be retrained to use my entire foot. I was put through tons of exercises and started to realize that they just might help. I was excited and hopeful for the first time in 2 months. I feel like these exercises are going to make a difference, and that I will be able to run without pain again. The best part about today though, was when I was leaving the PT asked me where I was working. I explained to her that because of the new medicare guidelines I got laid off because they couldn't use aids anymore. She asked me if I was looking for a job because they had an opening for one more aide. I immediately jumped at the idea, and got an application. I am hoping to get it back to them by tomorrow, and will let you know if it really works out.

I think the most amazing thing about today is the fact that things happen in life for a reason, and that I wouldn't be working towards the things that I am without a little bit of adversity in the beginning. This experience has really shown me that the lord has his own plan for us, and that we only need to be open and ready to receive what he has set out for us. I am still learning that things might not happen when or exactly how we want them to, but the lord knows us and what is best. If we just have patience things will happen as there supposed to.

I'm Back...

I thought that I would try the world of blogging again. I feel I have a lot in life to be grateful for, and need to start writing these things down. I am also at a crazy time in life, I graduate in April and yet have decided to go on and finish some pre-reqs. for medical school. I feel like this blog will become a place where I can express my feelings on trying to get into Med. school and the challenges and struggles that come up along the way.
