I gave myself a grade 2 calf strain yesterday. … By getting off a bus. I am in so much stupid amounts of pain! And frustration. And anger. And depression.

I’m so tired of my body falling apart on me, at just 41 years old. A friend (one I’m in awe of, to be honest!) told me that he had more health issues in his early 40s than any other time. But got through them. I’m trying to hold onto his words.

People without chronic illnesses/pain so frequently don’t understand how horribly it affects our mental health. When I’m in less immediate pain I will need to write more on this topic. For now, though…

Rest. Ice. Compression. Elevation.
