Today I had some back pain. I tried the usual stuff (tylenol + alieve), stretching, hanging upside down from a hoyer lift (I work in healthcare). Nothing worked as usual. Later in the day I was talking to a co-worker and she asked how my "back thing" was going. I shared that anger and stress lead to pain pretty quickly and I am very stressed today. We talked (briefly) about my stressors and then the pain vanished. I verbalized my stressors, made a plan to accomplish a task and then I spent the rest of the day without pain. Of course, I came home and had a huge fight with my spouse, so who knows whats going to happen tomorrow (yikes). Rome wasn't built in a day right?
