50/50 hip pain

Thank you for the work you’ve taught me about managing my thoughts. I have had pretty severe hip pain in my left hip for over a month that didn’t seem to be going away and because of fear, I hesitated going to the doctor.

I went today. The news was that I have an abnormally shaped hip socket which wore through the tendon and there’s not much they can do without surgery.

Before scholars I would have been devastated and thought something along the lines of: I’m only 42, this can’t be!! But instead today I took the news and actually felt relief knowing what the problem is and empowered to decide how to move forward.

On the way home from the appointment, I laughed to myself when I realized–it’s just one of my two hips…a true example of the 50/50 rule!
