I had back aches with mine, every thirty minutes I stand up and stretch and walk around. The scoliosis is killing me,that includes my posture!

I love what I do. Probably most of us would say that or we wouldn’t be in this business. I’m online maybe 16-18 hours a day and I love every minute of it. My family says I’m “hooked.” My computer is like a drug. When I sign onto The Web Squeeze, a sense of well being and peace races through my veins. It’s like being excited, but yet, being at peace at the same time. As I answer emails, work on podcasts, and handle the hundreds of details that pop up in the course of a day-I feel alive!
I’m not sure when things began to change for me. Over the course of months I found myself being sick more and more. I’d have a bout of bronchitis, then just as I was beginning to feel a little better, I’d come down with a stomach flu. I went to the doctor several times. I began to feel like the fictional character “Monk.” I carried hand sanitizer and wipes with me all the time. I know that made me look even more geeky-but at that point I didn’t care. I was just tired of being sick all the time.
Matters went from bad to worse. Instead of thriving on excitement and eating stress for breakfast-I began to have trouble coping with even small issues. The thought of a looming deadline would send my heart racing. One day a friend who was working with me accidently erased one of my external hard drives. I actually had chest pains! I thought I was dying. I went back to my doctor, who began to suspect that perhaps I had some anxiety and depression issues. Ya think? Pills were offered and taken, but they seemed to make matters worse.
