One Little Thorn One Big Trouble

Updated on December 16, 2011

ListenTo Your Body

I find it amazing that most of the time we never get hurt

Our bodies have weathered every storm right from the start

It is when something just isn't right we wonder ?

What is wrong with my foot ?

Why does my back hurt ?

Ouch that smarts when I hit my finger a certain way

Then silly me I forget about it until a week later when I hit the same spot again

Brilliant I tell you there is something there

Pull the needle out and start poking

That looks deep

Under each layer of skin I go

I can see it now

It looks like a splinter

What a a relief to have that gone

Now let it heal and soon I will be back to normal again

You will think next time I will be a little more careful

Probably not

This is where common sense should take over

Part of me thinks I am invincible

The other part of me says what are you crazy?

You have been watching too much t.v.

So many hero's to save the day

I have to remind you in real life it doesn't work that way

You have to look long and hard at the situation

See what the underlying problem is

Then the rest is easy

Don't stop until you get the best results

Doctors are only people who try to helpsssssssssssssssssssssssss



Moving on I just fell asleep

I tried t type out a few thoughts in my mind

So I can tell my body I respect you and you have served me well

I will try to make sense of your keen insight to was is wrong

It is funny when the writing is on the wall

But we just don't see it

We pass by it many times and still don't notice

I guess we just lose focus on our health and becareful those little things add up

With a little time and patience

We are back on track and ready

Full steam ahead !!!!!!!!

Relly l just couldn´t bear you to think l´d stopped commenting. l´m following you every day In fact l probably should be arrested for stalking you.

      Enjoy your Holiday time.

      Ghaelach What happens when we have big things that bother us?I think we just need a bigger needle thats all.Deborah Brooks You are smarter than me.It took me two or three days before I realized it was my body talking not the neighbor.Dim Flaxenwick If there is a blank spot I will try to fill it.I can't even write messy or smudge my words to confuse you.Technology has tricked me again.Your comments are still here and I just tried to cut them out and paste them on my wall.It didn't work the computer wouldn't fit on the wall.I am just getting slower in my old age.My hands are filled with arthritis and my eyes can't see.That is not true.Maybe someday.But for now I have been side tracked and it took me awhile to figure out what was wrong.I love that you keep following me and you have so many nice and wonderful things to say.I am all choked up and I will do my best to explain in my next hub.Life bit me in the butt and the doctor won't see me till Tuesday.So now I have to sit in my bed and get plenty of rest and lots of t.v. no writing that just aggrivates the healing process.I don't know where I hear these things.Trust me don't believe a word I say.Thanx everyone and have a wonderful Christmas and a great holiday!!!

      OH Dream On WHY do my comments go missing again from the last6 hubs, my comments have disappeared and when l came to this one, (which said ´no comments yet´)

      l had to laugh because the 4 buttons l´d pushed all said 1 but no comment. Trust me l am reading and enjoying your work as always, that´s if you get this message, of course.

      You are so clever with your thoughts and words.

      l can´t help finding something funny in almost everything you write, or maybe it´s your attitude that cracks me up.? l don´t know , but l´ll keep on reading if you´ll keep on writing.
