Quotes About Pain Physical Health

Recovery From Back And Sciatic Pain

Sometimes you know what you need to do but it is so hard to actually do it, or you may be too afraid or not trusting your body.

I certainly reached that stage and was reluctant to physically do the exercises and take the steps I needed to take to get better.

Sympathy at that time was of no use to me. I needed motivation!!

There are a few things that people have said to me that gave me the kick I needed at that time, stayed with me and helped me to get up and try again. I would just like to share these with you too.

If you do nothing, nothing will change

Never Quit - Great quotes to apply to coping with sciatica pain

No One Cares About Your Back Like You Do.

Quote About Back Pain Solutions! The Sort Of Back You Need!

I just love this quote . As an avid gardener before back pain hit me and at a loss when I could not do gardening anymore, to the point when I worked out how I could do my garden and still stay pain free, this first quote really sums it up !!

The second quote I just thought illustrates that what we say doesn't always reflect what others hear!! :O

What a man needs in gardening is a cast-iron back, with a hinge in it

Charles Dudley Warner.

I told the doctor I broke my leg in two places. He told me to quit going to those places.

A Special Quote For Coping With Back Pain-God grant me the Serenity...


God grant me the Serenity

To accept the things I cannot change,

Courage to change the things I can

And the Wisdom to know the difference

Focus on what you CAN DO with your back condition. Dont beat yourself up over the rest.

To Quote from Max Ehrmann, Desiderata


Max Ehrmann


Go placidly amid the noise and haste,

and remember what peace there may be in silence.

As far as possible without surrender

be on good terms with all persons.

Speak your truth quietly and clearly;

and listen to others,

even the dull and the ignorant;

they too have their story.

Avoid loud and aggressive persons,

they are vexations to the spirit.

If you compare yourself with others,

you may become vain and bitter;

for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself.

Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans.

Keep interested in your own career, however humble;

it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time.

Exercise caution in your business affairs;

for the world is full of trickery.

But let this not blind you to what virtue there is;

many persons strive for high ideals;

and everywhere life is full of heroism.

Be yourself.

Especially, do not feign affection.

Neither be cynical about love;

for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment

it is as perennial as the grass.

Take kindly the counsel of the years,

gracefully surrendering the things of youth.

Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune.

But do not distress yourself with dark imaginings.

Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness.

Beyond a wholesome discipline,

be gentle with yourself.

You are a child of the universe,

no less than the trees and the stars;

you have a right to be here.

And whether or not it is clear to you,

no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.

Therefore be at peace with God,

whatever you conceive Him to be,

and whatever your labors and aspirations,

in the noisy confusion of life keep peace with your soul.

With all its sham, drudgery, and broken dreams,

it is still a beautiful world.

Be cheerful.

Strive to be happy.

Max Ehrmann, Desiderata

When Life Is Difficult A Calming Quote " Everything Passes...."


Let Nothing disturb you .

Let nothing frighten you

Everything passes away

except God

St Theresa

Spanish Nun.

Back Pain Quote "This too shall pass"


Expect trouble as an inevitable part of life, and when it comes, hold your head high, look it squarely in the eye and say,

" I will be bigger than you . You cannot defeat me" Then repeat to yourself the most comforting words of all,

"This too shall pass"

Ann Landers

American advice columist

Back and sciatic pain can be hard Take Joy In Simple Things.


What a delight it is

When, of a morning,

I get up and go out

To find in full bloom a flower

That yesterday was not there

Japanese poet
