I have to say, that I have had a lot of troubles with my neck in the past. Many of these issues, I just assumed that everybody went through. Maybe it’s just how I was raised, but I never thought that anything that I was going through was unique or significant, and I’ve always just learned to work through my pain, physically, mentally, and emotionally. Recently, I started dating someone new. She’s fantastic. One thing she told me, was that a lot of what I was going through was peculiar and particular, and that I shouldn’t sell my own pain or feelings short. Of course, I resisted this perspective at first. But, after thinking it over, I realize that this sort of self-awareness and care to heal my wounds of all kinds and alleviate the constant pain that has been so present in my life is actually something that is worth addressing. So, I’ve started by beginning with the neck issues.
