What Distracts You From the Pain?

Hello, Sandytoes! My name is Clubohara! Distraction from pain…I make sure I have “stations” set up – I have beading, reading, coloring, puzzles, movies, etc all around the house so I can move from project to project – keeping busy, doing crafts or watching comedy keeps my mind off the pain.

I like how you have different things to go to. And laughter is the best medicine!

If you don’t laugh you’ll cry!

What a great idea to have all those things set up to keep you busy.
I used to color a lot but I have pins and needles in my hands from my back issues so fine work has become an issue. I had the shingles virus (not the rash), which attack my eyes and causes some nerve damage so reading is no longer an option for me either. Other than my computer and TV, there is little I do. My big deal for the day is when my hubby drives me to the store to get my morning coffee.

I had those nerve pains but found a product that helped me Its homeopathic called Nerve pain formula it's from Botanic Choice I love it you chew 2at a time ,you use it up to 4times a day but I've never had to more then 2 times I also sleep without a pillow as my nerves in neck where being pinched try it works for me good luck Linda

I do the same
