Starting 2020 with getting hit by a car on my bike. . . and the true lesson revealed.

  1. The lack of knowledge on how to initially manage symptoms
  2. Doing things that unknowingly aggravate and exacerbate the pain
  3. A deepening sense of helplessness, victimization, blame, and depression — This really slows the process down, as physical pain worsens when we become more angry, frustrated and anxious about our bodies when they hurt . . And especially an injury that will take a few weeks (or even months) to get back to 100%.
