I made a commitment to write something every day this month. The topic today is pain. Like in the back pain I'm having right now, that is making it difficult to sit here and write this. It started yesterday when I was cleaning up the house and then sewing in the afternoon. My back goes into spasms and if I don't listen to my body, quit what I'm doing and start icing immediately, I pay the price. Yesterday I didn't listen to my body, so I'm knotted up today. I will be icing today for sure and taking a muscle relaxer.
