It would be pointless to suggest which is worse. The principle remains the same and no one person is the same. You may be having trouble with your hands lately, while for another person it has always been his back. You may have different injury issues but you may have one thing in common. You tend to ignore your injuries and by the time you have taken your painkillers, you have wished away the pain.
Only here you are again. Hand or wrist injuries Houston patients could tell you a thing or two about ignoring what may only seem like mild injuries. You also need to take into account the kind of work you do. You also need to seriously consider your age. You might still be productive and earning a good living but you are not as young as you were. You may not notice this now but, over time, not just your body, but your mind starts slowing down.
That could, however, still be a blessing in disguise. It could be characteristic of the wisdom of many senior professionals who, after years of life and work experience, have also built up a good repertoire of leadership skills. Wise words to the young at heart. Lessons in life to show them how. But it hardly makes a convincing statement when you have lost, practically lost the use of your hands.
You simply cannot practice what you preach. No, running to your bottle of pain killers simply will not do. Thanks to your experience, you already know what is coming next. Within months, or maybe the next time it will only be a matter of weeks, the pain could be back and this time it could be a whole lot worse.
