She was on her way to physiotherapy again, hoping that she would get some relief from her sore back. It had been three weeks that she had not been sleeping and had been forced to take time off work. It started one morning as she was getting ready for work when she felt the pain in her lower back. She went to work anyway and as the day went on it seemed to get worst. On her way home she could feel it in her hips and down her right leg. After a hot bath and a few Tylenol she went to bed hoping that by morning it it would be gone.
Unfortunately as soon as she opened her eyes the next day, it had gotten worst. She called the office saying that she was on her way to the hospital. The doctor said it was her sciatic nerve and that she should expect to be off work for the next two to three weeks. A bottle of anti-inflammatories and a few sessions of physiotherapy were prescribed.
It only got worst and the pills were causing her to have stomach upsets. She felt nauseous and wasn't a happy camper having to sit in front of the television all day. When she tried to do a few things around the house, she felt the pain level increase.
One afternoon, a friend came over for a visit. She figured that she would make an effort to get dressed because she had been living in her pyjamas for the past few weeks. A beautiful sweater, a little lipstick and a pair of her favourite shoes made her feel like a woman again.
Her friend brought homemade cookies and a coffee latte to brighten her day. After an hour of explaining what had happened and some regular chit chat, she noticed her friend looking at her shoes. Wondering why she was focusing her attention on them with what seemed like "I know something that you don't", she asked her.
Basically she reminded her that walking around in high heel shoes and sitting in front of a computer everyday at work were probably the cause of her sore back. That and the fact that she never got any exercise and that she had gained a little extra weight were not helping the cause either.
It is a proven fact that you can ruin a friendship by telling others what to do even though they may be right.
