I have created this blog to attempt to help those with chronic pain and depression. Sisyphus was a mythological figure sentenced to roll a stone uphill for eternity. In this way, I intend to approach chronic pain and depression as constant foes that must be your constant focus. Photo courtesy http://akrockefeller.com/blog/tibetan-autonomy-a-futile-odyssey/

first dance

About a year ago, I was at a very low point in my life.  We were in DC and stayed at an older home during the trip.  The home had an old bathtub that I fell in and ended up sitting most of the trip.

As hopeless as I felt, I knew that within a couple of months I was going to get stem cell therapy on my knee.  As little as I believed this would help, I still had a shred of faith that it would bring me up some.

So fast-forward 1 year:  I was able to do something I never dreamed I would do: go to a father-daughter dance, and yes, I danced :).

You can't get back time.  I am thankful I got to spend this time with my daughter.
