Hey ya'll,

I try self accupressure but there are only so many ways the human body will bend. It helps a
lot. Right now my chest is killing me. I did a 12 hour day yesterday mixed with 2 1/2 feet of
snow in the driveway this morning. Thankfully, this is my day off. The plow has only come
down my road once today and it's been snowing since last night. I heard it's supposed to snow'
into tomorrow. I have to leave at 4 in the morning and only have one True Calm pill left.
If I get bad again after shoveling in the morning then I'll use it.

I do the accupressure on some of my tenderpoints too and man does it hurt to push on them but it is suppose to help, or I'm into self torture. smilewinkgrin If I ever take the time to go for a massage she pushes on them on my back which is my worse area but the way she does it doesn't hurt as much as when I do like my arms and legs.
Wow Nana Monster I would be dead if I scooped that much snow. We are just having a really cold spell here in Illinois, it's 5 degrees.
I guess I'm going to have to get some boots for my two little dogs, my little bichon laid down in the snow this morning cause her paws got so cold she was limping. I thought I was going to have to get shoes on and go out and get her but her little sister convinced her to get up and come in, it was -1 then.
Keep warm and please be careful driving.
luv and hugs

During pyhsical therapy the therapist worked on my pressure points... never again. It was too painful.
Is applying pressure on a regular basis supposed to releave the pain?
Happy Holidays.... hoping for a good New Year!
