A Warning To All Of You Gardeners Out There

Work your fingers to the bone, what do you get?

Rotary Cuff problems.....

I've been having trouble with my shoulder for a couple of years now. I can still do the heavy lifting and moving I used to do, but I'm very careful about it. I think I've trained other muscles to compensate for my problems, and luckily I've been getting by, but I know my time is numbered. So I headed down to the doctor's office and got my first steroid injection this week. I hope it works....I really don't want to have to make room in my schedule for surgery.

So, let this be a warning to you, all you gardeners out there.....BE CAREFUL, DON'T OVERDO IT, AND MAYBE, JUST MAYBE, YOU SHOULD HIRE SOMEONE ELSE TO DO THE HEAVY LIFTING FOR YOU!!
