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??
