In recuperating from my surgery, I allowed myself to be pampered and waited on. While this was necessary for a while, please don’t make a habit of this. Self-sufficiency is, by far the better option!
Not feeling like you can do for yourself only feeds the negative; again the “cold pricklies!” to free yourself as much as you can and you will feel more “warm fuzzies.”
But, the law of negative returns prevails if you’re continuously asking others for help when you can help yourself; (it just takes longer).Your body responds to this feedback loop by more pain, for example.
What is already a lengthy recovery time is made longer by the presence of lupus and fibromyalgia and a host of other medical conditions and medications; so be wise, do your exercises as instructed, do yourself a favor and “let yourself off of the hook” every now and then; realizing that “Rome wasn’t built in a day.”
