If I knew then what I know now... *I would have rested more in the acute stages. It was only later that I read about "ART: Aggressive Rest Therapy!". Even then it made a huge difference in dealing and healing. *I would have asked for help sooner. Now I see how sick I was and what a grace it was to finally get a volunteer shopper from the local university, get a visiting nurse to bathe me, get massage and acupuncture, have family feed me and help out with housework, get a wheelchair from a church who heard about me, get a wheelchair from the government, get a cane. *I would have sought therapy sooner. Someone I could tell the truth to, the whole truth and not have to worry about the burden I was causing. *Anyone care to add on here?
