So today, after a decent nights sleep I awoke via a puppy nose telling me she piddled on the carpet….baby steps I know….at 5:00 am …and the sun was out, the sky is clear! So off for a walk we went. I am trying Lyrica, for my current nerve pain, and life is truly more beautiful when you are not in pain. Pain management is truly a very important part of living with a chronic condition. Mindfulness training, and the practice of not suffering from being in pain is one thing. But I gotta say, it wears you down, and I still want to be able to go to work, and be productive, so it is also for me, important to be as pain free as possible. Reading this over, it would appear that truly is my word for the day. Puppy is calling with her squeaky toy……coffee??
ms as though I only post when issues become overwhelming. I have bee practicing yoga and meditation in small doses but despite my best intentions my body is screaming at me.
The weather, business at work and the loss of two dear ladies recently to cancer, all play a part I am sure. So being pro active I made appointment with physiotherapist, doctor and maybe neuro to ensure my downhill slope is as mild as can be.
That is a frustrating part of chronic illness when you lose control, feel worn down and tired when you are trying to stay in control each day and make the best of it.
Hugs to all, I am thankful for each day, and try to keep my glass half full.
