A Big Thank You!

I haven’t really shared it before now, but I’ve been having a bit of a back problem lately. It’s actually a chronic problem that had gotten pretty unbearable for me in the last few months. Finally went to the doctor and she sent me to physical therapy. One of the downsides of this problem has been that I cannot sit at the computer for very long…or anywhere for very long for that matter. Plus, it’s very distracting, so I’ve found it difficult to concentrate.

Why am I telling you all of this? Well, I figure you care somewhat about my well-being. šŸ˜‰ But more so, I’m sure you’ve noticed that I’ve there’s been a lot of Regular Guest Contributors here at Indie Fixx…well, my back and my inability to sit at the computer for long periods has been part of my reason for bringing in some help.Ā  I also wanted to add some different voices to the posting as well.

So now, I’d really like to take this time and thank all of my recent Regular Guest Contributors. They all have signed up for a 3Ā  month stint, which we are about 1/2 of the way through, and will hopefully get me through the worst of this back thing. I am hoping that they all want to stay on after that though. We will have to see how they feel after this 3 months though. šŸ˜‰

So, a very BIG thank you to Twiggs, Christine, Avis, Danny, Elizabeth, Michelle & Suzie!

  1. Oh Jen, I’m so sorry you’ve been going through this!! I admire your honesty and am sending healing thoughts your way. My husband has suffered from chronic back pain in the past and finally found a great doc in NY that helped him tremendously. The doctor, John Sarno, wrote a series of books and the first one, “Healing Back Pain” is one that my husband highly recommends. Take good care and be kind to yourself.

  2. awwweeee thank you so much jen!!! and i hope that back problem disappears real soon! i know how distracting that can be and well, we all love to be sat comfortably somewhere, right? thank you for the opportunity and for this special note!!! i am loving this! it makes me think and have new ideas!!! take care!!! twiggs

  3. I really hope you feel better very soon! I know what that’s like. Have you tried a desk/computer stand where you can stand up to work? That and my TENS machine were the only things that kept me going while my physical therapy slowly helped to alleviate the condition.
