introduction to gardening with back pain
I have had back problems for more than 30 years now and every year it gets a bit worse. Stil I want to keep gardening with back pain because I love gardening so much.
Luckily with the medical progress we make, I get some relief from my constant back pain thanks to some medical interventions.
About 3 days ago I got one of those medical interventions. And although these operations are quite painful, I’m happy they exist because they help me out in the end.
no more gardening?
I cannot imagine the day that I would have to stop gardening. Gardening really is my way of getting away from the daily troubles.
I can really release all the stress while grubbing in the dirt. Making the small holes to plant my seedlings and seeing them grow up, makes me feel alive.
I did have to adapt a lot of stuff to keep on gardening, I don’t really mind changing the way I garden, as long as I can stay busy in the garden.
gardening with back pain or other problem
Depending on what physical problems I might have, I will always look for ways to keep on gardening.
In my current case, I leveled my grow area to a hight where I don’t have to bend over anymore. And it works out great for me. But I think, whatever problem I run into, I would search until I find a way to solve it.
To avoid lifting problems, I also bought a tumbling composter. This really makes making compost incredibly easy. Of course, it costs money, but I really need to make changes and I hope I will get my money back while growing my own food.
What about the future?
I really mean it when I say I could keep on gardening until I die. I don’t feel as if gardening is a burden. To me, it really is a way of life and I love life very much at the moment.
I did need the medical intervention to feel better. I can’t say I’m pain-free now. But at least, I’m not handicapped by the pain anymore. And as long as I can garden I will be happy in life.
I do hope future medical interventions will even get better to maybe finally make me healthy again. But as I already mentioned, as long as I can garden, I’m happy.
Okay, this is just me rambling about my back and my garden. But you get the point. I love gardening. It’s a part of my life I cannot miss.
