Pain Is Spelled "G O O D"


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

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.

    Good for you! Keep up the good work! I found your post to be quite motivating! Even though I'm not recovering from surgery, I've help 2 family members recover from surgery and their hard work during their recoveries was quite inspiring! Best wishes on your continued successful recovery!
