Blog Share: Weight Lifting — Shall We Get Dressed Now? [Disability & Chronic Pain]

No, I have not taken up a new hobby. Nor have I had a sudden healing. I didn’t leap out of my chair yesterday and grab a dumbbell. This is about a different kind of weight. Oh, you’ve all fallen asleep or stopped reading. Come back! It is worth reading. Ever been flattened by life? […]
