Rubbing cream moved the pain elsewhere. I could still stand, but my feet were aching with every step. Both hands started hurting. Neck was next, the right buttocks. Finally I laid on my back after massaging with
my hands and fingers with pain management cream intensely. Took two Tylenol extra strength, after fighting for a half hour laying as still as I possibly could, no pillow, on my back in the bed. Chose not to relinquish
the fight, and stood face to face with it. Closing my eyes, felt I was opaquely trying to vision the level 8 (to me) pain, trying to ignore it as I went. Chose to not allow pain domination of my mind. The fight went on. I tried
to absorb and embrace the pain, causing muscle spasms in both feet. A cramp can get one's attention. Never screamed. Had to push against the bottoms of both feet in certain areas.
As this moved into the second half-hour, walked as like walking on eggshells to where the carpet meets the wood floor. Grabbing both sides of the door frame, I pushed down on the conjunction for the remainder of the second half-hour. Time for more
Diclofenac Sodium Topical Gel, 1 %. Intensity was slowing a bit, but why stop fighting?
Found exemplification in the wee hours of a new day: 1ST through 4TH Chapter of Richard Chun's book, "Advancing In Tae Kwon Do". Exercised slowly through the motions for 2 1/2 hours. The fourth chapter was the one I was slowly going to: Meditation, page 39, shows where I then studied only the picture. I found the peace that passes all understanding.

Are you OK, Justme?
