What I've learnt lately


Listen to my body and don't let others convince me otherwise. This is some thing I have learnt lately.
It was a simple beginning - the physio said "Do not let your pain go higher than a 5 out of 10". Seems simple, it is simple but it has had far reaching affects for me.
Firstly I realized I always push through the pain. How does this help me? It doesn't.
Secondly I allow other high acheivers around me convince me I should keep going. This also does not help me.
So listening to my body has had a profound effect - I feel in control. Yeah! I am not my disease. It is not controlling me. I am only taking pain killers as I need them instead of like clockwork. I am doing positive things to help myself :
  • resting or changing activities when the pain gets to a 5

  • walking - even for just 10 minutes a day

  • going regularly to physiotherapy

  • going to sleep at a regular time 'cause it does matter

  • not pushing through the pain

  • asking for help (to bring in the groceries or cook or whatever) when I need it.

  • reading others inspiring blogs ... Living-with-MS ... help autoimmune ... fibro files ... Girl, Interrupted by Polymyositis

I am NOT my disease and neither are you.

Survival but continued fighting in the heart and soul; writing is sitting the trial itself.
