Believe me when I say I can empathize with those of you who suffer from chronic pain conditions. I know how exhausting it can be to hurt all the time. I’m right there with you with my fibromyalgia (which feels like somebody has pulled the plug, drained all the energy out of me, then thrown … Continue reading Empathizing With Chronic Pain Sufferers
Don’t procrastinate! There! See, that helps, doesn’t it? If only it were that easy. I think some personalities are more prone to procrastinating than others.
