Having a bad day

@karen00 As you read the reply from @elmay you may find some tips to help you. Each person has their own best way to deal with a sudden change in meds or our environment. This is my first winter in a new state, where there is a definite seasonal change. I find myself in sweats a lot of the time, and moving slowly, but forcing myself to move. I know it will make me feel better even if my body and mind complain at the time ;)) I have set small goals to accomplish, nothing major, so that getting those done make me feel like something was accomplished. It can be a struggle to get through each day. So try for getting through the next few hours, then repeat. I treat myself to a nice cup of tea each night, as a ritual that then I can rest. Is your new pain medication in response to a new issue, or a change? What will you do for yourself today?

@gingerw Hey Ginger, thanks for caring! The change in medicine is because I needed more help with pain relief. This time of year is very bad for me. Plus it’s been rainy which makes it a double whammy. Yesterday I journaled to help my mood. I also got lost in my reading, which is a good thing! When I’m really depressed, I’m unable to concentrate enough to stick with it.
I’ve decided to try being more cognizant of what I’m eating. I’ve read much about anti inflammatory foods, but I haven’t really believed it. So, I’m going to investigate. Anyone out there who has experienced success with the elimination of foods and lessening of pain – let me know! ………..Karen
