Well everyone here it is a new year and here all of us are still here learning to live with our pain....I had a rough year last year and I am hoping this one will get better for me and everyone...I need to know when to stop as a friend pointed out to me the other day before I get in such severe pain but I dont seem to know how..I push as far and hard as I can..Is there anyone else out there who does this too?? I know It is not what is best for me but I cant seem to realize my body cannot keep up with my mind anymore...At 48 I should be able to do alot but I cannot...How do you guys put the brakes on when you should???

Hugs and Blessings,

I am the same way. I don't seem to know when to knock it off... LOL. I'm a perfectionist, and I totally push myself over the edge. I think I also really give too much sometimes. I try to do too much, and I'm all about everyone else, so I don't always look at myself and stop and ask for help and support when I know I need to. And it really ends up coming back to bite me!

Hopefully the new year will be better for me that way. I do have a great treatment protocol, and I'm doing better all around than before, just didn't start the new year off to a great start is all!

*hugs*

mitzigirl,

It's hard for everyone living with pain and knowonw enjoys it.We just have to to grin and bear it since have chronic-intractable pain.

I've been putting up with it most of my life.

You can make it and any time you feel down pm me.

mitzigirl,

I'm a hard cookie and I'll be able to get through life with the pain.

I appreciate your support.

We were suppose to have factory brakes installed with the original packaging at birth????????? My warranty expired I am sure of it, so now what do I do????Smile Just a little humor there but on the serious side I may be good at telling my friends to slow down and know their limits but I have a need for speed and efficiency and accuracy and so I end up doing too much and suffering. I have learned however, not to wait until I am at an 8 to take pain medication, that is too late for it to do anything. I am learning to set limits for the day though, like laundry one day and maybe dusting another day, and not doing all of it in one day. Hugs
