Yes you have heard this advice before but please… put yourself first…always. I ignored this advice a few weeks ago, and my own strict rules to fit in with two clients who came together and were very keen to come immediately one after the other. My rule is to have a minimum of 30 minutes between clients so that I have a drink, a comfort stop and just a break between clients.
On this occasion I needed a toilet break and ended up hanging on until I ended up in severe pain. In fact I developed a hernia by hanging on too long, had major abdominal surgery, then 10 days later I was in agony because part of my bowel was damaged, torn and leaked into my abdominal cavity. More very major surgery and I have been very week since.
The moral of the story is to put yourself first… always.
Yes I am going to be ok and am slowly booking new clients.
