Ha. Well, this contrary body of mine had a different idea. It reminded me that I don't run my calendar. It's my body that has the big say.
Instead of going to yoga, I found myself in nerve pain once again. Just when I felt like it had been away long enough that I could plan my own schedule. Once it started, I knew that yoga was out of the question. My day went from being centered around trying a new activity to just getting through the hours, minutes, and even seconds of the day. I started to write about my pain, but decided no. Not now. I'm not going to let it back in.
I kept running over in my head was there something I did that triggered this. Did I over do it with Thanksgiving travel and family activities? I know that's not how it works, but at times it's impossible not to think this way.
Well, here's hoping this is a temporary problem caused by some combination of new medication and cold weather. We'll all find out together I suppose. If you read a post about yoga next week, you'll know things are under control.
For now, I would love to hear about others' experiences with yoga who have autoimmune disease and if it has been beneficial.
