    My back is constantly hurting. Especially after a long night of work. I am lucky my husband will give me a massage if he's home. But we work opposite shifts. If I could give myself one it would be awesome. But I would always be doing it. So instead I take a nice hot bath and...

    Would Be Nice

    Just like how I wish I could give myself a haircut, or check myself for ticks... it would be SOOOOOO nice to give myself a back massage. I wish my masseuse knew exactly how I want to be healed!!

    Ugh So Tense

    Honestly I always have back pain. I don't know why though! I sit and stand straight and pick things up properly. I don't think I have fallen or done anything along those lines. But I always get told I have amazing hands and people always want me to rub their backs or arms. Its...
