Having a bad day
Hey Ya’ll, I’m starting out with a rough day. I’m not feeling mentally the way I should to be able to fight this. I’m on a new pain medicine and things haven’t been going too well these past few days. I believe it’s because I have fibro as well as rheumatoid and osteoarthritis and the weather has been cold and rainy – a double whammy. I wanted to communicate with fellow pain sufferers who would understand……..Karen

I just read y'all back and forth messages. It reminds me of of me. The whole thing. Fibromyalgia, osteoporosis, endometriosis, arthritis, migraines…etc. being surrounded by four walls everyday doesn't help at all. It could put you in a dark place. And I'm only 38. Also surrounded by two people I love the most that makes my pain look like a minor headache. One thing I hold onto is my artwork and going to the gym even though it hurts. I've been going for about a year. At first it was hard hard. But then I realized that being sore everyday felt a whole lot better than the pain everyday. Also it helped me sleep at night. I stopped all my pain meds bc all it did was numb me. So I use pure peppermint oil everywhere and it soaks through the bone and it's better than anything over the counter. All I can say is I hope y'all continue talking to me bc this is the first sight I found people like me. God bless yall 🙏.

I hope we all feel better soon — that's my one wish for 2020. Peggy
@veteranspouseinpain I also use peppermint oil plus frankincense together and yes I do love the E.O. they do work .
I use both also. On my skin, bathtub and sometimes I put it into my water air purifier. They are definitely the oldest remedies ever that's why they work. I'm glad that other people are coming on to those.
