The Things You Carry

As any of you who have been following my blog know, I’m all about prevention and early recognition of overuse issues. Obviously if we prevent the problem, we might not have to suffer. If we catch it early, we might not have to suffer…much. And even though through suffering…we grow stronger, I think it doesn’t apply as much to the physical being as to the emotional being . And it certainly doesn’t apply if the suffering is due to your purse.
