At 65, I've just had Rotator Cuff surgery. After surgery and the pain meds wore off, I couldn't lift my right arm up to my waist without the help of my left arm. Daily Rehab is painful, but every two or three days I see progress and my shoulder hurts less and less. Would you believe I'm now exercising each day? Both my injured shoulder and the rest of my body. I never thought that actual physical pain could be a Motivator. Motivation comes to you in strange packages, so be prepared to seize it -
no matter what form it comes in.
