Did your chronic illness insist that you spend your vacation in bed?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Did your chronic illness insist that you spend your vacation in bed?

Before fibromyalgia, psoriasis, psoriatic arthritis, and other chronic illnesses took over my body, I would return home from a vacation feeling relaxed or energized.

At first, my illnesses would require a little more rest while away. Because I pushed through pain and fatigue in hopes of keeping up with my family, I always returned home feeling like death.  It was not unusual for my body to need days, weeks, and a few times months to recover from a week away from home.

Through the years I have not only made changes to how I address and relieve my chronic pain, but I have made changes to how I vacation too!

Here are a few tips to help you better enjoy your summer vacation!

The Disabled Diva’s Pain Management Plan

The Disabled Diva’s Pain Management Plan

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

If you follow me on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram you have surely noticed the improvements that I have experienced in the past year.  I have been receiving a lot of messages from followers asking about my pain management plan, so today I am sharing it with you.  There is no ONE thing that has taken my pain levels back to what they were before my chronic illnesses took over my body 24/7, it’s a combination of natural and alternative therapies that work together.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

*This post was originally written in April of 2018 and updated in May of 2019.

For those of you who don’t know me, I was diagnosed with psoriasis in 2001, fibromyalgia and psoriatic arthritis in 2003, endometriosis in 2004, reoccurring abdominal adhesions in 2005 due to endo and surgical scarring, coccydynia in 2008,  degenerative disc disease in 2011, and costochondritis in 2019.

I followed pharmaceutical protocols until 2012 when my health deteriorated to the point of not being able to walk, sit, or stand for more than 5 minutes without experiencing excruciating pain.  I was also in the emergency room several times a year for extremely painful urinary tract infections.  By 2012 most of my life was spent in bed.  That fall I tried medical marijuana, liked the relief it gave me, decided that I wanted to go that route, but not until I allowed my body to detox from all its pharmaceutical medications.  A funny thing happened after my detox, I experienced a reduction of nerve pain and never again experienced another urinary tract infection.

Once I had detoxed from all my prescriptions I began creating my own pain management program.  To be clear, I am not suggesting you do the same, only you can decide what is best for your body. Click here to find out how I addressed my pain and symptoms one at a time.

Medical Marijuana (MMJ)

I began by using marijuana-infused edibles.  While they took longer to take effect than smoking, vaping, or using tinctures, it stayed in my system longer which provided longer-lasting periods of relief.  Finally, after years of not being able to sleep for more than 4-6 hours a night, that was if I was lucky, I began sleeping a full 8-10 hours every night.  The only exception is when I experience a spike in pain from an incoming heat wave or storm pressure.  After a few weeks of using MMJ, I regained use of my left thumb and pointer finger.  Those joints had been so swollen that I hadn’t been able to bend them for years.  After a few months, I was able to make a loose fist and a year later I could finally make a tight fist.  Nerve pain was no longer a daily issue, instead, it only occurred when experiencing an extreme heat wave or storm.

MMJ did something else that was pretty amazing.  Unlike opioids, MMJ didn’t mask my pain.  Instead, it eliminated the reactionary and widespread pain I had experienced since the beginning and reduced the pain felt from my pain sources to a tingle.  This made it possible for me to recognize the sources of my pain, know what areas needed to be addressed, and what I should avoid doing to not aggravate those areas.

 

I also treat my pets with CBD. Click here for my list of preferred brands.

By the fall of 2015, I was able to drive myself to the grocery store, shop at one store without using a wheelchair, and occasionally walk short distances at Disneyland.  By the end of 2016, I could walk through two stores without needing weeks to recover.  The only condition that I didn’t experience any relief with was with my abdominal adhesions.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I continue to use MMJ to this day. However, unlike the early years, I no longer need it during the day and only use it before bed.  While I still like how easy it is to microdose with edibles, vaping has become my favorite way to medicate.  I do however use various CBD products occasionally during the day to combat anxiety and depression.  I also use topical CBD oils and lotions.

Like I was when I first decided to use cannabis for pain relief, you may fear the expense since it is not covered by insurance.  To this day I am learning how to cut my cannabis budget, yet still have the same if not better relief.  One of those ways is with dry vaping.  I discuss it and review various MMJ and CBD products in my Facebook group Making Chronic Pain My Bitch with The Disabled Diva.

My top two go to CBD product manufacturers are BioCBD+  and FlavX.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Food Intake

In 2016 I began recognizing how certain foods were increasing my pain and inflammation levels and began making changes.  The changes I made at first were minor but helpful.  Last year I began tracking everything I consumed and noted how I felt.  This made it possible for me to recognize even more foods that were causing harm.  I started out in 2018 determined to get serious about what I ate.  My diet consists mostly of fruits, vegetables, nuts, smoothie bowls, and granola.  I still eat out occasionally but try to make the best choices when I do.  Funny thing is that by recognizing how certain foods were causing more pain and making sicker, I lost my craving for them.  What I ate was never the cause of my chronic illnesses, but my former diet did make them worse.  I no longer comfort myself with the foods that I used to crave because there is no comfort in knowing that I am creating more pain and inflammation.  Losing weight is another benefit, again while not the cause of my diseases, losing weight has helped reduce pain and gives my doctors one less thing to blame.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

PEMF Therapy

I was introduced to PEMF therapy in November of 2016.  I was skeptical at first, but even though I only used it a few times a week I still experienced pain relief and increased stamina.  It wasn’t until I heard that my device may be able to reduce the pain and symptoms from abdominal adhesions (they were strangling my bowels) that I began using it daily.  Since the end of March 2017, I have used my device daily and when I say daily I mean that I use it from the moment I wake up and until I go to bed.  PEMF therapy with Oska Pulse immediately loosened the hold that adhesions had on my bowels.  Within four months the pain that I experienced in my feet, spine, hips, and sacrum were no longer a daily issue.  In fact, those areas only hurt when I push too far or from high pressure pushing in a heatwave or storm.  After 6 months I was able to walk farther than I had since the fall of 2003.  By January of 2018, I began walking .75 miles a day, then increased to 1.65 miles a day, to early 2019 where I was walking 4-6 miles every day!! I stopped using my wheelchair for outings in January 2018 and only use my walker when I am at Disneyland and am going to be on my feet for more than several hours.

***On April 11, 2019, I was diagnosed with multiple broken ribs.  I am currently on bed rest until the end of May.  Until they heal to the point of being able to walk, stand, or sit without pain I have to use my wheelchair for outings.  I am treating my ribs with rest, ice, cannabis, and PEMF therapy. Both cannabis and PEMF therapy are replacing NSAIDS which would have been prescribed if for the fact that I am allergic to them.

Click here to follow my journey from the beginning.  Click here to visit Oska Wellness. Promo code DIVA will save you $55 at checkout.

Full disclosure: I am an affiliate of Oska Wellness, but only because the product truly delivers on its promise of pain relief and reduction of inflammation.  This device is what has pushed my pain management to another level.  My daily pain level is between 0-4.  I experience fewer flares and the ones I do experience are less painful than before, don’t last as long, and I recover from them faster.

 

 

Exercise

Because of the improvements I have experienced from MMJ, dietary changes, and PEMF therapy, when not recovering from an injury, I have been able to exercise every day.  My physical abilities didn’t occur overnight.  I started with slow 5 minute walks and increased as my body allowed me.  I keep myself accountable and offer support, encouragement, and motivation to others in The Disabled Diva’s Fitness Buddies.

Other helpful treatments

In addition to the four major aspects of my pain relief plan, I also use heat, ice, and massage.

While I don’t often suffer from psoriasis breakouts, I do find relief from them with a fabulous natural soothing skin balm that has done wonders for my daughter’s eczema.  Click here to read my review.

To put an end to nightly leg cramps/spasms, I began applying Good Night Lotion to my feet and legs before bedtime.  I also use it to decrease muscle tension in my neck and shoulders.  Click here to read my review.

I have also replaced over the counter cold and allergy medication with herbal tinctures.  I credit these tinctures for making it possible to avoid the crud that my husband and friends caught in April.  Click here to learn more about my favorite herbal remedies.

I am always open to trying new things that are holistic, natural, or out of the norm.  I have learned to listen to my body and to work with it instead of against it.  My pain management plan has made it possible to know which areas need addressing on a daily basis.

I have not been healed.  My conditions are not curable.  However, I rarely spend an entire day in bed anymore and I am doing things that my doctors said I would never be able to do again.

I am happy to address any questions you may have.  No matter how you choose to combat your chronic pain, know that there is hope! Don’t give up! Keep searching and trying new things.

How to plan the best summer vacation despite your chronic illness

How to plan the best summer vacation despite your chronic illness

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Does the thought of taking a summer vacation get you excited or does it send chills down your spine?  I loved traveling before I became chronically ill.  In addition to yearly Disneyland vacations, I loved exploring new areas in other states or within the ones that I lived in.  Weekend road trips without a destination were my favorites.

Soon after chronic pain became a part of my daily life I began to loathe traveling. It wasn’t that I didn’t want to go exploring, instead it became too painful. Not only did my excursions increase my pain while away, it would take weeks and sometimes months to recover from them once I returned home. Not wanting to spend most of my time recovering I opted to stop traveling.

Choosing a Mobility Aid That Fits Your Needs and Lifestyle

Choosing a Mobility Aid That Fits Your Needs and Lifestyle

Getting used to the idea that a mobility aid will enhance your life isn’t always an easy one.  Click here to find out why you should never feel embarrassed or ashamed about using one.  Whether this step takes place before or after you begin using one, you still need to figure out which mobility aid is going to be the best fit for your needs and lifestyle so you don’t waste precious time and money on ones that aren’t a fit.

Balance

Is balance an issue for you?

Do you find that you need a little something to help keep you upright as you move about your home or while on the go?

Canes are a fantastic option when you need a little stability.  I prefer one that is able to stand upright by itself.  There is no need to find somewhere to hang them nor do they slide off of rails, chairs, etc. and onto the floor.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Walking down dark hallways or outdoors after sunset can be dangerous even with a cane.  Click here to check out a cane that is equipped with a flashlight to help you see where you are walking!

Canes don’t have to be boring and cute ones don’t have to be extravagant like the blue diamond cane that Selma Blair rocked at the Oscars.  Click here to view a sizzling purple cane that will surely draw more compliments than remarks questioning your need for a mobility aid.  However, if you really want something that will turn heads at a swanky event, you need to click here for some fancier options.

Another option for stability in the home is a basic walker.  I do not recommend it for outdoor use as it doesn’t have wheels, but it is a safer option than a rollator for indoor use.

Crutches and walking sticks are additional options that you may be interested in.

Balance and a place to rest while on the go

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I have been using a rollator for balance while on the go since 2007.  However, my rollator solves more problems besides aiding my stability.  It gives me a place to sit when my feet, knees, or back need a moment to rest.  My rollator provides a place to put my feet up on when sitting on a park bench.  It also reduces how much shoulder and back muscle strain I must endure from my purse or backpack.  Instead of wearing them on my body, I often hang them or place them on the seat of my rollator.

Because of a yet to be diagnosed issue with my intestines, I am not currently able to walk very much and have had to return to using my wheelchair more than my rollator once again.  Before this new health issue became as severe of a problem as it currently is, I was ready to purchase the rollator/transport chair combo pictured below.  It easily transforms from a rollator to a transport chair.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This mobility aid would have allowed me to walk when I could and to be safely pushed by family when I couldn’t.  I will be purchasing this, but not until we are closer to this latest health issue being resolved.  Instead for now I need to look at something that will allow me to keep my independence without enduring physical pain.

Click here to see a variety of rollator options, I guarantee there is one that will fit your needs!

Independence

Depending on your abilities, a standard wheelchair may be what allows you to remain independent.  But if you are like me and your body will not tolerate the physical movement it takes to propel one, you will either need someone to assist you or choose to purchase an electric model.

If you are looking for an inexpensive wheelchair that is tougher than it looks, you need to check out the one that I have.  I purchased it in the fall of 2016 and although it collected dust in the garage during 2018, it is a tough model that will see me through many more years.  This wheelchair has been rammed into curbs, walls, poles, you name it and you would never know by how it performs or looks.  Click here to read my original review of it.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Although this is the most affordable option for me at the moment, I am looking into purchasing a motorized one to allow me to keep my independence for as long as possible.

My father in-law recently purchased this beauty.  He and my mother in-law have taken it on several trips and love it.  It folds up and is easy to transport in their vehicle and gets him everywhere he wants to go. It allows them to enjoy walks without him having to spend days and weeks in physical agony.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

While not ideal for most indoor settings, with the exception of grocery and big box stores, the scooter below is the perfect option for getting around your neighborhood.  It can also breakdown to fit into your trunk so you could use it at Disneyland, cruise the boardwalk at your favorite beach, or for a day at the zoo.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Click here for more manual and motorized wheelchair options.

Whatever you choose, please remember this……

There is no reason to be ashamed for needing to use a mobility aid.  I don’t care how old or young you are, if your lack of mobility is forcing you to stay home and is isolating you from friends and family, put your pride aside and find the mobility aid that best suits your needs.

My abilities fluctuate often. This is why I have a fleet of mobility aids and not just one.  In the past 3 years there have been days when I haven’t needed any assistance, some where a cane kept me from toppling over, my walker saved my knees and back, and that my wheelchair allowed me to spend time with friends and family without accruing a high level of pain.

Which one or what combination of mobility aids would enhance your life?

pemf oska discount fsahsa.png

1. Oska Pulse

Instead of just blocking pain, Oska Pulse works at the cellular level to provide longer term pain relief, increase circulation, reduce inflammation and improve mobility.
Oska Pulse uses Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Technology to boost the body’s ability to repair injured cells. Oska Pulse does not need to be in direct contact with the skin to be effective and there is no tingling or sensitivity. 100% drug-free Oska Pulse is an FDA-registered alternative to opioids for the ongoing relief of back, knee, neck, joint, muscle and chronic pain. There are no known side effects and it cannot be overused. I run treatments anywhere between 4-10 hours a day, depending on my pain level and what symptoms I am addressing. Oska Pulse oscillates through a series of frequencies during its programmed 30-minute operation cycle. All frequencies are within the range of 1 -150Hz. The intensity of the PEMF (pulsed electromagnetic field) is approximately 0.9milliTesla, which is similar to the output of a television remote control.
Cons: Treatments only last 30 minutes. Device only has a 22 inch radius and works best within a 10 inch range, limiting the area of your body that is being treated at a time. Cannot treat shoulder and feet at the same time.
Update!!! Oska Pulse has been updated as of January 2019 and now runs for 90 minute increments!!!
Pro:  The ten inch range can treat areas near the location you choose to treat. Click here to see demonstration. It comes with a strap to place device on your body so you can continue on with your life. I wear and run my device from the moment I wake up and until I go to bed. The device is portable and doesn’t have to be plugged in to use.  It can be used anywhere.  Oska Pulse is eligible for Flexible Spending Account or Health Savings Account reimbursement.  My discount code DIVA saves you $55 when you purchase via Oska Wellness’s site.

Make Pain Your Bitch: How to Dominate Your Chronic Life

chronic pain lies, it says you can't, won't, and never will .. but you can, will, and should try

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Make Pain Your Bitch

Has your chronic illness stolen the life you had? 

Have you put your dreams on hold?

Does having to spend days, weeks, or months recovering from an outing make you feel like a prisoner in your own home/body?

Do you want to take your life back?

What are you waiting for?

In my eBook Make Pain Your Bitch: How to Dominate Your Chronic Life  I share the areas of my life that I needed to take ownership over and the changes that had to be made.  My book won’t cure you, in fact it won’t change your life….. But it will motivate you to change it yourself by helping you recognize what changes you need to make and empowering you to make them.

I haven’t been healed. Fibromyalgia, psoriatic arthritis, psoriasis, degenerative disc disease, and endometriosis are NOT curable.  However, what I am able to do has increased since applying the changes I outline in the book.

I didn’t need a cure or achieve major pain relief to improve my life.  Yet by changing my ways, I was able to significantly reduce the amount of chronic pain I experience daily.

Chronic illnesses are not death sentences.  There is hope and it is possible to live a fulfilling and pleasurable life with or without less pain.  I have learned to live passionately and purposefully no matter what my body throws at me.  I have learned to work with my diseases and make adjustments when necessary, instead of constantly battling them.

Do you want to dominate your chronic life?
