Keeping Death In Mind

March 10, 2010. Phnom Penh, Cambodia. Late morning.

I pulled on my swim trunks, trainers, and a tank top and walked out of my little guesthouse room, sliding through the cramped restaurant strewn with tables, and out into the hot, dusty air of Phnom Penh. It's a hot day. It'll be good to swim after lifting weights.

I said, "No no, thank you" to the tuk-tuk drivers offering to take me somewhere in the city, pushed through the little crowd, and out onto the street. The streets in Cambodia more resemble alleyways than streets, and I navigate around people and vehicles.

I went down to the end of the street, turned left, and skirted along close to the local restaurants, half-tent half-storefront type places to get food. I stepped into the crosswalk, the Hotel Cambodiana rising in front of me. I check right and then left, and I watch left as I cross, watching for oncoming traffic.

A loud scream rings out. AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH.

Myofascial Pain and Dysfunction - Trigger Point Therapy

On Jumping on Entrepreneurship

Before I get started on this article, I just want to point people who know what Trigger Points are to The Myofascial Pain and Dysfunction: The Trigger Point Manual, which is hands now the best book about Myofascial Trigger Points that there is. There are two volumes, one for upper body and one for the lower body.

You can lie to yourself, but deep down, you know what it is. Your elbow, knee, or some other part of your body is always hurting. For a while, it was only right after you were physically active.

That's normal, right? It just means a good workout.

Then it started to hurt during a workout.

That's not a big deal. I'll just rest it for a day or two, then I'll be good.
