To make everyone here feel better...
The consequences of being all bada** and "superfit" and "Crossfit" and "PX90" and all that: Your physical therapist will make a LOT of money.
What happens to those super-fit types? Well, here we go:
1. Joint deterioration (sometimes by 35)
2. High risk of lumbar spine injury that will prove lifelong
3. High risk of pelvic injury
4. Stress//repeated stress inuries to long bones increase risk of breaks later
5. Stress on feet and hands (and ankles and wrists) may lead to early loss of flexibility and/or stress fractures that will eventually lead to actual fractures.
Ever notice that you see these ads for "Be fit like a Navy SEAL!" and you never see a Navy SEAL actually doing these things? There's a reason.
The TLDR version is: If you puke after the workout, you did too much too hard too fast. If you pass out, ditto. If you get diarrhea, same.
So when we fibro creatures are told to "move more"? bear in mind that some of the people telling us that are on harder drugs than we'll ever be. Or are smoking enough pot to not feel it if they get a hand cut off. (Not a joke, alas.) you'd be surprised the number of these "super-fit" types I've met who are also super-stoned/"medicated". Yeah, if I did all those things, I'd feel no pain, either!
Now, go tell yourself it's okay to be resting.
Oh, y'all... Yinz... however you want me to say "you" collectively... (Ustedes? Ihr? Wy?)We might get a new fridge by Christmas. (Please support the needed infrastructure at our ports. If the recent backups at LA don't convince, consider that this is $$$ at stake, not politics, okay? Thank you. ) I was laughed at when I asked for a repair. "You fridge is over 10 years old!"... Apparently, 10...
