Learn to sift through what you read. Make sure it applies to you and your situation, as we are all uniquely Different.
Today, I woke up in agonizing Pain. I can always tell how my day will probably be the minute I get out of bed. (if I get out)
1. I'm incredibly stiff and hurt somewhat
2. I gingerly walk into the dressing room bend over to put on my underwear. And experience a ripping in my lower back.
3. I do the same but also have a knife stabbing me.
4. I do the same but it feels like a lion took a bite out of my back.
Today was a #4.After waking up and staying in bed a extra hour. And I'll have to take extra meds (and I don't mean more than prescribed) When I'm trying to cut my meds in half because of a upcoming surgery possibility. I'll also have to take it very easy for how ever it takes to get back to normal.
And I was on a acceptable physical regiment (if that's the right word) to be healthy, and avoid the depression of being stuck in a recuperating state. IE: being stuck in the house doing less than I was doing before.
O.K. where was I? I had to take a break, I couldn't sit any longer and I'm slow, slow, slow!
All because of a post that I read. That I knew didn't apply to me. But it was in the back of my mind to push a little harder.
Now this post certainly did apply to some. But in my opinion it was a "blanket" post. One that should be helpful to a select group. And not everyone.
And through long time trial and error I know my boundaries. so certainly not me.
But it was stuck in the back of my mind, maybe in my subconscious. And I pushed to hard. Now I have to pay the price!
So as you read posts and gather your information. Make sure you sift through them and make sure that it will apply to you and disregard anything that dose not!
Sorry, I had to take another break, I'll be all day trying to post this!
Actually I think I've said enough.
Good luck, Jim
