To start the Manual we have to acknowledge having pain is dangerous. It should only be done in the safety of your own home and never done frequently. Quite frankly we recommend not havin

  1. Brilliant post, I needed to read this today as it serves as a great reminder. Sometimes you know what you could/should do, but don’t; you know what you’d say to others, and yet you still feel guilty or try to push yourself or feel bad about taking care of yourself. Thanks for sharing  ♥
