Hi Suwie

Hope things work out for you but remember if you don't manage your pain properly it will get worse even though you haven't broke your leg or sprained your ankle you'll still get muscle spasms and things as the pain is as real as if you did and the more stress the more pain so prioritise where you can and be kind to yourself, so take care and save that love for your family in a different way maybe.

Good luck getting the job you want. I agree it helps having something to keep busy but not so much that you can't manage the pain. Fingers crossed :-) xxx


Good luck for getting that job.

Gentle hugs
