I have a degenerated vertebrae, and the muscle holding it apart from its neighbors blew out three days ago. I have been blessed to be pain free for three years now, and I am handling it pretty well. It’s a pain in the neck but it also gives me a chance to put my philosphies into practice. I always say the bad times can be borne better by blissful reverie upon the bounty of life. Now I get to walk the walk and remember all the good things I have going for me, in the midst of a bitter brain stew chock full of negative nerve endings. I can do this.
If you are not feeling any pain today, take some time to appreciate it. I will never take a pain free moment for granted again.
