Trying to live life with sandy toes and laughter

Ok… so I’ve tried almost everything for my back/hip/knee problems. My back has been hurting since I was a teenager. That’s when I was told by doctors that even though x-rays show a weird sacralization of my L5 joint, that won’t cause me pain… even though it’s exactly in the spot where I’m feeling the pain. Over the years that developed into sciatica, and then scoliosis of the lower spine, and now knee issues because of all the crazy muscle imbalances my body has developed to avoid the pain I get in that weird joint. So now years later doctors admit that I might have pain from the sacralization but there’s nothing that can be done besides inject it full of cortisone and go on my merry way. So I’ve been ignoring it. Which has led to my latest knee issues. Back to physio I go and surprise, today he wants to give acupuncture a try. WHAT… needles where I already feel numbing pain??? And aren’t you a doctor – what’s with this alternative stuff? OK… if there’s a chance it will help I’ll do it (plus my physiotherapist is cute. Sad, but a cute guy can talk me into almost anything). So I opt for the extreme version where not only do they stick a needle in me, they stick it right into the muscle and wiggle it around. If I’m going to do it, I want the one that works. Well it’s only been an hour so I can’t say it worked. I still feel like he left a needle in there… right in the nerve – good lord it hurts. But one good thing I noticed – right away my lower spine had more mobility. But good lord the pain.

Oh also I noticed cute physio guy had a wedding ring. Why do I not look at these things before I get all attracted?

At the end of #route16 we explored #princerupert and then hopped on the Northern Expedition for the 16 hour voyage down the inside passage. Gorgeous trip through the #greatbearrainforest We didn't see bears but saw lots of whales. #motorcycleroadtrip #explorebc #motorcycle #insidepassage #bcferries #rainforest #surroundedbynature #britishcolumbia #roadtrip #heritagediscoveryroute #nature #coast #moto #suzukitu250x
Our last leg of @route16_ca was gorgeous. Lots of fun corners, surrounded by forest, towering mountains, and ocean. We stopped at the North Pacific Cannery in Port Edward. Totally worth it, do the tour if you visit. #motorcycleroadtrip #explorebc #travelnorthernbc #motorcycle #roadtrip #historic #britishcolumbia #route16 #suzukitu250x #motoroadtrip #heritagediscoveryroute
Our best riding day was a side trip through the Nass Valley. Rode through a landscape of lava rocks, forests, and mountains, while weaving through some fun corners, stopping at First Nations villages and hot springs. We ended up back on the Pacific Ocean, so close to Alaska. #motorcycleroadtrip #explorebc #roadtrip #roadtrippin #moto #motorcycle #suzukitu250x #nassvalleylavabeds #hotsprings #beatifulbc #travelnorthernbc #roadtrip #britishcolumbia #route16 #nassvalley #nassvalleyhotsprings #watchyourhead

A little hazy as we left Prince George and started our journey along #route16 Met a bunch firefighters from around the world that were staying at our hotel in PG. So grateful for everything they are doing to save our forests. #motorcycleroadtrip #suzukitu250x #2000km #1200miles #northofthewall #motorcycle #roadtrip #thankyou #grateful #lovetrees
