Hi there,

Ouch it's painful. I am suffering with a pinched nerve and it's just not going away. I'm going to a chiropracter for it, do u go to one? they could be expensive but very helpful.
There are excersizes to do and ways to bend when cleaning, let me know if you are seeing a dr. for it or not and then I will be able to help you further.

FEEL BETTER

Ray

Hi,

Some thoughts on Passover - don't kill yourself. That was not the intention.

Also, I get a cleaning crew because I must have a clean clean home (a bit compulsive, but many of us are with Pesach) and the $ I use for that is money that otherwise would have gone to a doctor. So, get pain, go to a doctor and still have to clean, or, get a crew and have a clean house with less suffering.....

Don't be shy to ask for help. When you are shopping, have the store bagger help you to your car. It is their job. Also, have your significant other or a neighbor (or your kids!!!) help you carry stuff in the house. I take in the perishables and have my husband and kids help with the rest. I have even been known to ask a neighbor (not necessarily Jewish) for assistance when I need it. My kids love to help, and the neighbors are great also. A smile (and a cup of coffee) goes a long way!

Try to enjoy the holiday. Schedule in advance and try to give yourself time. Assign the kids tasks. Assign any guests some tasks. My kids are little (8,9) and they set the table every Shabbat, help with emptying the dishwashwer, and even rubbing my feet. They like to help Eema feel better, so little tasks make them feel needed and a part of the solution.

Wishing you all the best!
