I have been wanting to try it for awhile, but I am left handed. It made it all seem more complicated. But recently Nick just said lets do it. We called to see if they had left handed clubs we could borrow, and this weekend Nick took me to the driving range for my first lesson.
I loved it. Truly. I cannot wait to go back. It felt good to be outside, doing something for me. Something with Nick. I am awful. Like truly dreadful, but I have to get better, right?
I was worried about what it would do to my back. I haven't talked about it on here, but my back is still extremely painful every night. The doctors aren't sure what to do about it, so they just give me things to reduce swelling and help with pain. Nothing really helps. So after the morning at the driving range I was worried. It was fun, but would it be worth the pain?
That night we watched some TV on the couch after Henry went to bed. When I went to get up I braced for the pain. That is when it is always the worst. After a long day, and then I rest it and it locks up. I can hardly stand. Except...after golfing it was different. It didn't actually hurt that much at all. I could stand up. I could walk around. It was LIKE MAGIC.
So, maybe the swinging motion worked out the muscle. Maybe it was just finally on the mend. Who knows. But my back is feeling better and I think I might actually have a new hobby.
