Was doing well, and then...

    I fell off my bike on the way to the gym and landed in a way that whacked my neck and shoulders, same place where I have had my chronic pain! My lock got caught in the spokes- I was about to fix it when I saw it dangling, and over the handlebars I went. Freud said there are no accidents, but sometimes, stuff happens! It's ironic and distressing and pulls me back into worrying about what further damage is done. I'm quite bruised and need a hug.

    I went to the gym anyway- did the footwork, didn't move my arms.

    Even though it was an accident & nothing's broken, a negative spiral is looming.

    Don't think negative. Think the fall did not cause anything serious. If bad pain persists, check with your doctor.
    Meanwhile, buy some Epsom salts and soak in a warm tub for a while. That healed me after a real bad fall in which my
    whole body was black and blue. In two days I was like new again. Epsom salts if magnesium sulfate which help our bodies to heal and properly utilize 325 parts of our body. Most everyone is deficient in it. I use an Epsom salt foot bath regularly and also spray Magnesium oil on my arms and legs which soaks right into the blood stream. Swanson sells a real good Mag oil for a few bucks. Maybe try it.

    But think positive. Forget the fall off the bike. Your pain is most likely TMS.
