Most of my workday was painless and I only started to feel the pain towards the end as boss was talking to me but by end of shift it almost went away. By the way I am doing the same lifting and bending daily, I fully believe this is NOT the source of my pain... I spent my work day thinking positive affirmations about my work and boss and I kept saying to self, you are relaxed and peaceful at work and can breathe plenty of oxygen into your body. I said that off and on all morning and it seemed to work. It's been a tough day for other reasons, I live in the mountains of WA state and we are fighting 20 fires and a few are close to where I live. Smoke and ash all over, can't do stuff outside because of the smoke. I see huge clouds of smoke all over the sky different colors. They closed the main hwy to our town. I am fighting fear about it and a closed in feeling because there are fires in every direction. I have loved the trees and mountains all my life and why we semi retired here but this scares me.
