Visiting family. I live five states away and haven't seen any of these folks in a few years, and I was a teenager back then. Now that I'm an adult and I lift weights everyone wants to relate all of their chronic pain woes to me. All of the older adults have back pain ("disc") issues, so does my cousin who is 3 months older than me. It's pretty crazy to me because while I've known people with TMS I've never been sat down and talked to for hours about their various chronic pain issues. Mostly I feel bad because my grandmother is now in a wheelchair most of the time due to arthritic knees and it's hard on everyone. I'm not bold enough to speak up and spread the word so I guess I just wanted to rant a little. (These folks also need to lose some weight to take some strain off their bodies, which is something I'm definitely not bold enough to say to their faces).
