Ok! I get it now!
I need to slow down, to take better care of myself. I have to stop pushing all of my needs aside to take care of everyone else.
I need to say, “No!” sometimes. Well, most of the time. I need to stop doing, doing, doing. I don’t have to be the Energizer Bunny.
I don’t have to be supermom. I’m doing a good job. I don’t have to be a perfectionist (It’s CDO, in the right order).
Now, can my back stop hurting and go back to normal, please? I promise I won’t overdo it (for the first few days) and I promise I’ll never forget this excruciating pain if I can just get my life back. I’ll even, like, eat better and exercise and get more sleep and stuff. I’ll even get a pedicure! Or a haircut! Or file my nails! Or shave (sorry, TMI)! Honest! Now, pesky discs, slip back into place in 3…2…1…
