What a Pain!
Welcome to the forum sir.
Having had a sports accident and messed up L2 and L3, pain reduction was the thing that most turned me away from the ground. A good nights sleep was the second, and watching others get wet during the rain while I sat "high and dry" was the third. There are many other reasons I could give but for me, these are enough.
I did go back to the ground once and I had to crawl to a local tree to help get me back to my feet. (I am not a weeble)
Don't lurk. Lots of great people here.
