Data Entry Job – SCAM!
We are aware that someone out there is using our CEO’s name and our company name to “recruit” people for a data entry job. It is a fake. Please do not give them any of your personal information. We are not now, nor have we ever, had data entry positions available.
I've been around Spine-Health since about 2006. Initially, I used this site to get detailed medical information regarding my thoracic situation.
I then began to become familiar with the patient forums and enjoyed the interactions. I've read a lot of good and bad posts, read about many painful situations.
Right now, what gives me the most pain is reading threads and posts from different members that feel that their life is over and there is nothing but doom and gloom for them!
They concentrate so much on the negative, all their pain, all their discomfort, all their family and social interactions, etc they stop to look at what they can still do or what they can do better and so very important , how much they can still be enjoying life.
There is no secret about this.
If you think you cant, then you wont
If you know you can, then you will
Sounds very simple doesnt it? No, it isn't,
But if you want to play with your children/grandchildren, do some of the things you used to do, enjoy time with your family and friends, then you need to start working hard to achieve this.
Its easy to give up. Yep, think about all the negatives, think about all your problems, think about all the things you used to do.... and guess what , that is about all you will have.
Instead, if you want to smile and you want people to smile back, if you want to laugh and enjoy laughter, work hard in making that happen.
NO medication, NO injection, NO doctor, NO magic can make this happen .... ONLY You CAN, if you WANT IT!
