How much is too much for you?

How much does it take for you to break? I've been dealing with a bad back for two years waiting on treatment, I'm starting to reach my breaking down point. How much can you take before you break down?

It depends on how important it is, what the issue is(injustice,etc.) and if there is pain involved. I usually can take quite a bit if I am feeling strong and am not cornered or feel as if I am. If I am strong and not feeling weak and emotional I can handle something for quite a while.

very true! I think it also depends on how many people you have to support in times of need.

honestly, it took days of a headache to get me to the hospital then it turned out I was so sick because my gall bladder was passing stones into my pancreas and it was inflamed - AND I probably had been sick all summer! I suffered over 20 years with my shoulder hurting before it was correctly diagnosed... I felt terrible for YEARS and was getting things treated piecemeal until I found a book and got to the right doctor and got correctly diagnosed with Fibromyalgia.

I doesn't sound clear to me Sadie? what is happening on you? Mean you are feeling down right now. Well if that is the case, i am having a tough life right now too. I am having a problem earning money, but when I am doing everything to earn money, i get frustrated and I took a break on it. I stop until I am feeling fine, because for sure, I will not be at my 100% best if I will force myself to think. I take a break until i feel inspired.I feel and I know when I feel exhausted and I stop from what I am doing, and take a rest. When being exhausted affects my thinking, i frequently stop from what i am doing. Sadie, what is happening on you? I wish to know.

I think you are very patient that you are able to bear your pain for 2 years, had I been at your place, I would have been in soup by now.
