WHY DON'T I THINK BEFORE I DO? Causes more pain
I have talked multiple times about my chronic pain due to a number of spinal issues. As a result of the pain, I am often housebound and sitting in a chair, on a heating pad. I don’t do anything.
5-1/2 weeks ago, I had 2 discs replaced in my cervical spine. Tuesday, I have my lumbar spine injections.
I am happy to say that I am feeling well!!!!!!!!!
I did something that ALWAYS gets me Into TROUBLE!!!! I started to do some work in the house. I was sitting, but I was bending (a no, no for me). My hubby caught me and got VERY ANGRY. After all, he is the one who also suffers when I am in pain. He wasn’t upset that I was doing what I was doing, he was upset about HOW much I was doing. HE WAS RIGHT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I don’t understand why I do what I do?????????
I am a relatively smart person who is missing common sense.

Hi Ronnie! It is always very difficult for us to realize and abide by our limitations and even more so when we feel better. It is positive that you have felt better since your replacement surgery. Now, just don't do any more bending! I hope you recover from that activity quickly.
Ronnie glad you had a nice weekend after injection took effect but now your paying for it right? I do same and it makes me angry at myself .Before something like this I say to myself now how,s this going to make me feel tomorrow ,that stops me I know you want to but our body won't let us ,leave it to your hubby, love, as the English say Read God's word ,get in a study group online I am and have learnt alot I never thought of before.Take care ,enjoy life
Would you please tell me a little more about the study group you mentioned?
Thank you, Gary!
Sadly, my brain and my body don't connect very well.
When I feel badly for any length of time, my brain tells me to relax (good thing), but then I become depressed and feel like an invalid.
When I feel good (or better), my brain tells me to do, do, do. At the moment I am involved, I feel almost euphoric and 'normal.'
I am not manic. I just want to get all the going inn before I can't.
Double edged sword.
Hi Ronnie here is a poem our group leader Sent as we are studying the Faith chapter in our book We read about Edgar Cayce ,have you heard of him I will go into it further if you want one thing I,'ll say is he was born a psyche receiving the word of God Here,s the poem Faith can move Mts.
I rely on my faith each day to be strong . I trust in it ,even when things are going wrong. I depend on prayer everyday I am alive,for I know in this world it's the only way to survive. I lean on God's word everyday I study and read, for I know I will be blessed with the verses I read.I rely on my faith,prayer,and God's sufficient grace,my hope is found in the Bible when it's truth I embrace Jeremiah 17:7
Hope you enjoyed it Linda Meditate on this,Let the mind be in us,that was in Jesus the Christ
