I’m happy you’ve found found this methodology working for you. I’ve found CBT to be extremely helpful as well, in all aspects of life. Being mindful and staying present are tricky tools to master at first but with practice it becomes second nature. CBT tactics are my go-to’s when I’m feeling anxious or having a panic attack. I’ve found the same CBT tools are useful for dealing with pain. It’s amazing what our brains are capable of achieving.At present, I am taking an intermediate CBT class
Hi Caylee! Yes my previous primary care doctor didn’t know what was going on and unfortunately the “specialists” he referred me to weren’t much help either. I decided on my own to make an appointment with a rheumatologist at a different hospital. He was a bit confused as to why I was there. He actually said to me, “well you know you have fibromyalgia right?” Apparently it was THAT obvious to him 😂Honestly, if your doctor thought it was "all in your head", they clearly don't take you seriously. Too much is known now for that to even be a thing.
I agree with pushing through, “mentally.” Forcing myself to go - anywhere, or go do a minor chore. By not pushing through Physically, I stand a better chance of getting something done the next day, too. Rather than being down for 3 days, because I DID push too much.I believe there are certain times when “pushing through” is good for
My kitchen has laminate, with rugs over 85% of it. (Large kitchen dinning room combination). I have 2 dogs that will not walk on the laminate, because they slid horribly the first time they went into the area. They wound up at the vet, because they both actually injured themselves. Anyways - the robot goes up & down over the edges of the rugs quite easily. And I use a “wet wipe” style mop, with a dish soapy washcloth attached to get the areas between. What I’m saying - take a second look at what’s out there.Unfortunately robotic vacuums would not work in my studio. The ground isn’t level.
In American football, the primary scoring method is a touchdown for 7 points. If that’s not possible, they go for a field goal for 3 points. But if the team cannot even manage that, they “drop back & punt” the ball to the other team, to try again when they get the ball back. Sometimes, I just have to stop for the day, and finish another day.Is punt meant like avoid, dodge, swerve, duck, sidestep? In my dictionary it says it's usually meant for speaking / expressing things, but you mean the action, right?
I do appreciate all the ideas you’ve given me. However I’ve lived in my tiny crappy studio for over a decade so I’ve tried to dream of various different way of cleaning the floor. To say the floor is uneven is an understatement. I suppose it’s hard to explain but I’m currently living in my art studio, illegally, aka it’s zoned for commercial purposes only. This is the only space I can afford in my area on my low fixed income, as I’m on disability. I’m on various waiting lists all over the county in hopes of one day getting some government aid and being able to live in an actual apartment with my own bathroom and kitchen. As the building is zoned for commercial purposes, yet the landlord knows many of us “live” here, it’s kind of an agreement of mind your own business and you can get cheap rent. Therefore I’m stuck with a floor in various levels of disrepair, making it hellish to try to sweep. I used to break my back doing it before I had fibro so it’s pretty much out of the question now. I keep a positive attitude though and remain grateful that I have a roof over my head, as many do not. I consider myself lucky in that regard.take a second look at what’s out there.
Auriel- this is great news-I will turn over my prayers to thanks/praises! It was wonderful to pray for you! I am sorry you still feel crappy. I have had some of the same problems n the past. Aways grateful and relieved at good results, yet left still feeling the same, with no answers.
