    I'm exactly like this! My new rule of thumb is that if I'm crying and feeling a bit dramatic over my injury, it's going to resolve quickly, probably within a few minutes. If I'm laughing, the injury...

    If you pursue it, you'd be wise to budget weekly massages as well as a gym membership to work the opposing muscles that don't get as much work as the ones exploited by farrier work. As a more petite...
