Chronic Pain….what is it and why are we so lucky to have it be a part of our life? Chronic is defined as continuing or occurring again and again for a long time. Many people suffering from a disease have chronic pain. Is your pain always presents, changing your once normal life into a different “normal”? My life changed quite a bit when I had my back surgeries. I thought I knew what chronic pain was until I had Ulcerative Colitis attacks and back pain all the time. Now, I have had to change my life and now that I look back, it’s almost for the better.
What do I do to help me get out of bed every day besides medicines? There are some days that I don’t want to get out of bed or depression has a hold on me so tight that I can’t fake it till I make it. But over the years, I have found things, other than my husband and my kids that do get me out of going doing down that depression road. Let’s talk about the things that make me happy and the things I want to talk about in this blog to help you.
First, never underestimate the power of a shower and beauty products. In some post, we will be talking about the things that make me feel better, and the smells that can actually change your depression to happy days. Think about all the times that you have been feeling blue…….how long had you gone without a shower or putting on makeup. I believe there are some makeups that make you feel better. We will talk high-end products to drugstore products. I love making myself up and how it’s been a truly great way to feel better.
Second, my planner is something I can’t live without and it has truly helped me get through the bad days. In other post, we will be going through planner and ways they can help you get over those Moody Blues. I write everything in my planner and without it, I probably would forget to refill my meds or forget one of my doctor appointments. For me, writing down things make it not seem that bad or maybe I’m making things worse or I can see a pattern and tell my doctor when I feel worse and feel better.
Third in other post, we are going to cover crafts, working from home, adult coloring, crocheting, and anything that sounds like a great way to take your mind off your pain. Sometimes having something to focus on helps me get through those days that could otherwise be a lot worse.
And finally, I would love this to become a community where we all can share things. No one person can get through life this way alone. I want this to be a safe place, a place where no one’s opinion is wrong. I want all of us to feel that sharing doesn’t make anyone wrong. There will be giveaways, polls, and favorites of the week. We will have “Spotlight Dayz” where Youtubers, bloggers, books, songs, and whatever else I want to spotlighted.
Join the fun and don’t be afraid to ask questions!0
