I’m sorry to say this, but we do need to be careful with stuff like that:( We are NOT supposed to do any heavy lifting! It can make our Chiari worse. I have an almost 2 year old niece and it breaks my heart that I can’t pick her up or play with her like she wants me to. When she asks me to pick her up, I hold her hand and walk her to where I can sit down. She can climb on my lap and snuggle with me:) I know it’s hard, but you need to take care of your health. I wish I could tell you it’s ok to play like that, but I wouldn’t be doing you any favors. It is definitely an adjustment living with Chiari.
