newbie

  • hello, Im new to this forum and I wanted to see what everyones opinion on my issue at hand. all your opinion matters and I appreciate it. I dont know how to start but it goes like this, I use to be really active in exercising alot, I mean 24-7 and I missed it big time and its driving me insane. recently Im not active in my normal routine everyday exercise. the reason for that is I was rearended by a drunk driver and I sustained a spine injury and I am not able to exercise at all. I normally weight 145 pounds very lean and now I am about 200 pounds do to no exercise at all except for just light walking in place. I have two boys and age a teenager and a middle school thank God they are helping me out around the house while my hubby is deployed for the war. I guess my question is if anyone out their can help me with some kind of advise and exercise I can do. my eating is way off, I guess from being depress of the whole situation. I just needed some adivse and if anyone out their has any back injury that can help me with their story I would appreciate it. I just want to know if I will be able to run again and do everything I use to do such as running, biking, kayaking, kickboxing and all that fun stuff. I just want to know if their is hope out their for my back. I hear alot of bad stories on back injury.. I am just feeling tooooooo depressed just needed to know. and yes, more depressing knowing the person that rearended me has no insurance. so I just needed some advise and help thanks, its always nice to hear other peoples point of view
