I never took your post as being negative, and I did not write mine properly if I came off like I did! ( I hope that makes sense) That is one of the hard things about
posting you only have printed words, you can't hear tone or inflection in a persons words, like you can when you hear them speaking, and you can't see a persons facial expressions or body movements, which also add to expression in communication. I often regret that! As I tend to speak with my arms and hands! In one public speaking class I took, my instuctor asked me to put my hands in my pockets and give a short talk, do you know I could not speak a coherent sentence! Then he told me to do it again using my hands! What a difference! Maybe that is why it takes me so long to type a post! I just can't get my hand and arm movements into my writings! I know I am rambling now! Anyway please don't be sorry about
your post I know what you met and I do agree!
You are also right about
Costochondritis, it is often very difficult to treat! For most people it just goes away on its own, but that is of little help while one is waiting for it to go away! Acupuncture is something I personally can't tolerate, it causes me muscle spasms but that is another story and I have written enough, ( I also tend to be a little long winded in my writings) Smile
Justme I also hope you start feeling better!
Good Luck to You
