Good Days and Bad Days

  1. Today is a rough day but I have learned to be kind to myself, and take advantage of down time by catching up on reading, sewing, long magnesium baths, etc. On better days, I take advantage of my mobility by doing something I enjoy. Everyday, I choose to focus on how blessed I am and do something that gives me joy.

    1. Thinkin' of you today! Hope things are going a little better <3 Sending positive vibes your way. -Anthony (Team Member)

  2. Thank you Anthony, I am doing better today. Always feels great being productive, and being outside is even better. Hope you are doing good as well.

    1. Thanks! I couln't agree more. I'm looking forward to some good weather this weekend. I'm stuck inside in the rain today.

  3. I just joined today. I thought today might be decent. It's not the worst, but I am sure we have all had better. I have moved around and dealt with the spots of soreness, even went outside twice to enjoy the rain. A few minutes after coming inside my left knee has pain to my ankle, pain on my shoulders and right at the kidney area on the right.
    Have my heated bean bag on, taken my meds. Guess it's time to go take a hot bath. I keep my thoughts on the days that there is less pain or the today I feel excellent, I understand my days to weeks will fluctuate. I try to deal with the pain of the moment, getting lost in it makes it worse for me.

    1. I'm happy to hear that even though you were in pain, you were still able to get outside a bit today. I have heard from other community members that rain can definitely affect their pain levels. I really hope the hot bath helps and that tomorrow brings you less pain. Wishing you all the best. - Bridget (team member)

    2. ,

  4. , what's a magnesium bath? Curious! Today I'm feeling good, even though it is taking me minutes to get up and start walking. Minutes, not seconds. I am exercising more and trying to pick up on a pace towards some recovery. 😀

    1. Getting out of bed is getting more difficult. Bought a new bed and mattress. The bed lifts me to a sitting position allowing me to just swing my legs over and to the floor. It will be a while before I know how the days is going to go. Pain from head to tow. My life is all about pain management now. So be it. They'reworking hard to help me, and for that I am grateful.
