Is How You Practice Self Care Constructive or Destructive?

Is How You Practice Self Care Constructive or Destructive?

There was a time when I thought that self-care was just doing something that made me happy or comforted me during a flare.  Turns out I was wrong!  While self-care can be pleasurable, there is a lot more to it and it’s not always pleasant.  Today I share why we need to focus on all forms of self-care and not just the ones that make us happy.

What is considered self-care?

Self-care is defined as the practice of taking action to preserve or improve one’s own health and the practice of taking an active role in protecting one’s own well-being and happiness, in particular during periods of stress.

Self-care may look different from one person to the next, but we should have the same end goal of improving our physical and/or mental health.  Ways to do this are through personal hygiene, exercising, eating healthy, pacing ourselves, resting before we completely exhaust ourselves, napping when needed, following a schedule, adhering to a treatment plan, listening to our bodies,  etc.  Some other ways of practicing self-care are to care for our mental health by allowing ourselves a night or afternoon out with friends/family to laugh and let loose a little.  While not often fun or exciting, dealing with issues that are creating extra stress and anxiety in our lives is a must.  The longer we let things go, the more impact they have our lives and health.

One of my favorite forms of self-care is to spend time at the beach.  Sitting in the sand and listening to the waves crash soothes my soul and body.  Going for walks and eating healthy meals used to feel like a form of punishment, but in the past year and a half they have become my number one form of self-care.

What isn’t self-care?

Self-care is not a punishment! If it feels like one, it may be time to reevaluate why you believe it is.  Instead of thinking of cutting out or reducing how much comfort or junk food you eat as a punishment, consider what that food is doing to your body.  I found that the foods I was finding comfort in were actually contributing to my pain and fueling my chronic illnesses.  Once I was able to accept that I was responsible for some of my downtime and pain, I was able to see choosing healthier options in a different light.  I am not suggesting that I never indulge, but that when I do I call it what it is: an indulgence, NOT self-care.

Self-care isn’t about creating more pain, anguish, stress, or health problems.  Another reason that comforting myself with food isn’t a form of self-care is because it often leads to weight gain.  Gaining weight won’t help my chronic illnesses, in fact it will just add more stress as I attempt to rid my body of it.  To be clear, I am not saying that weight loss will cure me, but that instead my body will be under less stress.  I don’t care if you have one or fifty chronic illnesses, consistantly choosing to eat poorly and adding more health issues is never the answer.

Self-care isn’t about avoiding confrontation just because it is uncomfortable.  Self-care is standing and speaking up for yourself when necessary.  Self-care is caring for, protecting, and improving your mental and physical health.   Don’t stop caring for your heart and lungs just because your ovaries, kidney, muscles, or joints decide to be assholes.  You need all the strength you can muster up to face your chronic illnesses every day!

How to know if your form of self-care is constructive or destructive

The best way to determine whether or not your form of self-care is constructive or destructive is to observe what happens afterwards.  If you spent the night puking in the bathroom and can’t lift your head from your pillow after an evening out drinking with friends, it is safe to say that you weren’t practicing self-care.  There is nothing wrong with going out with friends if you are up to it, but you don’t have to drink alcohol.  Wouldn’t you have rather enjoyed laughing with your friends then going home for a good night’s sleep and be able to get up and do something else the next day?  Did your favorite comfort food force you to spend the afternoon on the toilet?  Unless you were severely constipated, there is no way to call it self-care.

Not everything you do will improve your life at that moment or at all, but a sign that what you are doing is a form of self-care is that it didn’t make your life worse!  Sure maybe standing up to your doctor or removing an abusive person from your life may feel stressful or painful for a moment, but in the long run your life will improve. Eating a healthy meal may not decrease your pain, but over time you will feel better than if you were consistently eating foods that fueled your chronic pain.

Take some time and think about how you are practicing self-care.  Can you identify what needs to change?  If not, try keeping a journal detailing how you practice self-care and your results.  If you see a pattern of destruction following some of your favorite forms, it may be time to make some changes.

Make Pain Your Bitch: How to Dominate Your Chronic Life

book cover web

Has your chronic illness stolen the life you had?  Mine did!

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

Does your pain management plan address your pain and symptoms, mask your pain, or do nothing at all?  In 2012 I ditched my plan that masked or did nothing for one that addresses my pain sources.

What are you waiting for?  From 2001 to 2012 I waited for my doctors to heal me, to relieve my pain, to help me get back some part, any part of my life back…. But it never happened.  Tired of waiting and desperate for pain relief I took ownership over my health.  I found natural and alternative treatments that not only reduced my pain levels, but actually addressed and improved my symptoms. I am not suggesting that you shouldn’t work with your doctors, but their are things you can do that will help whether you choose to treat your pain pharmaceutically or not.

In my eBook Make Pain Your Bitch: How to Dominate Your Chronic Life  I share the natural and alternative treatments that led to my feeling better than I did before my diagnoses.  I also share the areas of my life that I needed to take ownership over.  Many changes had to be made in  regards to my diet, lifestyle, and mindset.

I haven’t been healed. Fibromyalgia, psoriatic arthritis, psoriasis, and endometriosis are NOT curable.  However, my pain management plan has decreased my daily pain, how often I flare, and the severity of my flares.  I have gone from leaving the house once or twice a month in a wheelchair and having to ride lying down in the back seat, because of pain that was so intense I couldn’t sit, stand, or walk for more than 5 minutes without wanting to pass out from it to living the life I live now.  What is that life?  I no longer need a wheelchair! I still use a walker for all day outings, but how often I need to use it continues to decrease.  I can drive myself anywhere I want!! I am no longer a prisoner of pain!!

My book won’t cure you!  Heck my pain management plan may not be the right one for you, but if you follow the steps that I took to make changes to my treatments, pain management plan, and life you may figure out what changes you need to make.  Throughout the book I prompt you to examine your treatment plan, pain relief plan, and life.  Then I challenge you to make changes.

Chronic illnesses are not death sentences.  There is hope and it is possible to live a fulfilling and pleasurable life with less pain.  I began winning my battle with chronic pain six years ago and continue to improve.

Cannabis and Fibromyalgia

mmjandfibro

 

If you are anything like I was before I began medicating with marijuana, you don’t have a lot of experience, if any, when it comes to using cannabis for medical purposes.  For the first seven years of my life with fibromyalgia, cannabis wasn’t legal to use in the state that I lived in. Then I moved to California where marijuana had been legal for medicinal purposes since 1996. Even though it was legal, I resisted trying it for two years.  It wasn’t because I was against it or didn’t want to try it, it was my lack of knowledge that held me back.  I was clueless about the various methods of medicating with it, what strains to look for, how much to take, etc.  What held me back the most was the fear of how much it was going to cost.  Today I am going to share how cannabis made life with fibromyalgia livable, different ways to use it, and how to save money while using it.

How does cannabis relieve my chronic pain from fibromyalgia?

I had been failing to reduce the pain and symptoms from fibromyalgia for almost 10 years by the time I chose to medicate with marijuana.  During those ten years my doctors had prescribed muscle relaxers, opioids, anxiety medication, antidepressants, and valium (this was for sleep as every prescription sleep aid had failed to make me sleep) to, in their words, treat my symptoms. Oh and let’s not forget Lyrica which was supposed to reduce nerve pain, but instead increased it.  The problem is that not one of those pills treated a darn thing.  Most did nothing.  Some provided a smidgen of relief and occasionally something would mask the pain, but nothing was being treated.  With cannabis I was finally treating my symptoms, which made it possible to start living again.  Here is how cannabis has helped me with some of my symptoms in the past six years.

Insomnia:  Before cannabis I either couldn’t sleep for more than 20-60 minutes at a time or I fell into a sleep coma (fatigue so severe that it is impossible to stay awake) for days at a time.  From my first dose of medical marijuana I have been sleeping like I should.  I sleep every night and as the years have passed my need for daily naps has decreased drastically.  Yes, I still have an occasional sleepless night, but pain is no longer my reason for not sleeping.  Pain no longer wakes me up in the middle of the night, nor do I wake up feeling like I have been hit by a bus!

Fatigue: Experiencing a proper restorative sleep each night decreased my daytime fatigue.  In addition I was no longer waking up with a prescription pill induced hangover.  Instead of waking up feeling groggy I began waking up with a clear mind, minimal pain, and with excitement about what I might do that day.  Six years later and I no longer need daily naps.  Sure I take a few naps throughout the week, but taking one or two naps daily is no longer my norm.

Pain: Cannabis relieves and decreases muscle, joint, and nerve pain.  It also serves as my muscle relaxer.  It does this by reducing inflammation.  Another way cannabis helps me reduce pain is that it doesn’t mask my pain like opioids did.  With a high enough dose of opioids I felt like I could do anything and I did! The problem with that was that my body was not getting the rest it needed and what I was doing was making the problem worse.  With marijuana I experience a decrease in my overall pain level.  It eliminates my reactionary pain and reduces my pain sources to a tingling sensation.  This sensation has made it possible for me to feel and acknowledge where my pain sources really are.  With this knowledge I am aware of when I am aggravating them or causing another issue.  Before cannabis, my pain was widespread, I had no idea where the sources were.  Now I know exactly what areas I need to pay special attention to or what precautions need to be taken.

Brain fog: Some may find this funny, as they may assume that medicating with cannabis means being high.  However, that is not always the case.  You see, it is possible to medicate with marijuana without getting high by micro dosing or using CBD only products.  Before cannabis I couldn’t concentrate on anything.  Forget watching a movie or reading a book.  Now I not only can watch and read whatever I want, I am also able to comprehend what I absorb.  I can hear what people are saying.  I no longer avoid conversations.

Depression and anxiety: For close to a decade I was told that anxiety and depression were to blame for my pain….. However, I knew that the truth was that pain was to blame for my depression  and anxiety.  And for the most part I was right! Experiencing less pain and becoming more in tune with my body gave me the ability and insight to live a better life.  I was able to focus on areas of my life that were also creating emotionally challenging situations and could finally find joy in my life.  I still battle my demons, but they are no longer controlling my life.

You don’t have to smoke it unless you want to

The first objection most give me when considering medicating with cannabis is that they don’t want to smoke it.  Well, unless your state’s medical marijuana laws dictate that smoking is the only legal way to medicate with it, your options are plentiful.  You may choose to use edibles, tinctures (an oil that you place under your tongue), or topical oils.  You can use a vaporizer or pipe if you don’t want to smoke a joint. Some people can’t stand the taste of cannabis and prefer to take it capsule form.  Check out the menus on WeedMaps or Leafly to see what your local dispensaries have to offer.

What strains are best for fibromyalgia?

According to patient reviews on Leafly these are the best strains to combat symptoms and pain from fibromyalgia: Blue Dream, Harlequin, Cannatonic, Critical Mass, Tahoe OG, Granddaddy Purple, GSC (f.k.a Girl Scout Cookies), Blueberry, Bubba Kush, and Headband.  Click here to learn more about these strains and how they help with fibromyalgia.  Finding your perfect strain may take some experimenting.  I also find that I need different strains depending on the season, my activity level, and other factors. No matter which strain you try first, remember this important tip: start slow!! You will be surprised by how little cannabis is really needed to achieve your desired results.

How to get your recommendation and purchase meds without going broke

If medical marijuana is legal in your state you will need to obtain a recommendation or certification.  Your primary doctor or disease specialist will most likely NOT be the one who prescribes cannabis for your chronic illness.  You will need to search online or look on WeedMaps or Leafly to find a marijuana recommending doctor near you.  The cost of seeing this doctor and to receive your recommendation/certification is NOT covered by insurance (nor do we want it to be, but we will discuss that another day).

Another way to save money is to figure out which form and or strain you need the least amount of.  Don’t always assume that the dosage noted on the package is the least amount recommended.  Example, a 100mg pack of candy from FlavX is broken up into ten 10mg doses.  However, because of the strength of their product I only needed half and each bag provided 20 nightly doses.  I would get 6-8 doses out of a quad dose Cheeba Chew.

surviving a heatwave blog post social fbtw

Thanks to my numerous alternative and natural treatments, I’ve been able to decrease and eliminate many flare-ups and daily symptoms that I have experienced from fibromyalgia and psoriatic arthritis.  This year I can add less downtime due to excessive heat and heatwaves to that list!! In fact despite a triple digit heatwave heading towards southern California, I was still able to go to Disneyland to celebrate Independence Day with my family.

Burnout

Until last year summer, excessive heat and heatwaves were responsible for triggering fibromyalgia and psoriatic arthritis flares that left me in bed for most of the summer instead of going to the beach or Disneyland.  Most days were spent lying in my bed or recliner praying for the pain to end.  Living in Arizona was the worst, because there wasn’t just an occasional heatwave, the entire summer was considered extreme heat. I rarely left the house during the summer and when I did, I was miserable. Living in California is so much better.  In fact, I experienced the difference long before I made changes to how I treated my chronic illnesses.  Triple digits are not common here and my body and I fell in love with the summer weather.  Although I was still getting knocked down from heatwaves, my body wasn’t being punished by the weather on a daily basis.

How excessive heat affected me

Excessive heat and heatwaves would completely knock me down.  I would experience extreme muscle and mental fatigue, joint/bone pain, muscle/joint inflammation,  increased nerve pain, swelling around my spine which would then shoot nerve pain not only down my legs but up through my neck and skull too. I would also experience inflammation around my skull. I would struggle to open my eyes and speak coherently. Forget sitting up, my entire world would spin out of control each time I tried.

These symptoms would often start as early as 3 days prior to the heatwave hitting or anywhere from 2 to 24 hours before. These flares would last until the pressure pushing in the heat began to decline. Depending on how long it took for the pressure to decrease, I would be knocked down for 2 to 5 days. There were times when I would be lucky to have one or two good days a month during the summer season. When living where my summer temperatures were considered extreme heat for over 3 months I was basically down that entire time.  I felt like my skin was on fire and as though it and my muscles were being pulled from my bones.  Imagine how it would feel to have someone take a screwdriver and attempt to pry them open, that is the pain that I was told I would never be able to escape.

How changing my treatment plan brought back my love of summer

In the past 6 years, since I began treating my conditions naturally and alternatively, the amount of time I spend in bed continues to decrease. In fact, in the past year the amount of time I have lost to a heatwave can be accounted for on one hand. Instead of losing a complete day though, I only lose portions.  I experience the symptoms in smaller degrees. For example the fatigue that used to plague me 24/7 throughout a heatwave, now only requires that I take a nap or two and/or that maybe I sleep in an hour or two later than normal and or go to bed an hour or two more than I prefer.  I am no longer tortured by uncontrollable nerve pain. My muscle/joint pain is minimal compared to what I used to deal with as I can still function for a good portion of the day without dealing with pain that used to bring tears to my eyes. Another perk is that I don’t have to medicate myself into a mental stupor to get that pain level down.

How I’m winning the battle

To begin winning I had to take ownership over my healthcare and accept that I, not my doctor is responsible for my health.  He/she can suggest and prescribe things, but I have the final say over what goes in and on my body.  Since what I had done for twelve years failed to help me it was time to make some changes.  Click here to find out what changes I made and click here to discover which symptoms I addressed first.  This is why I have been able to decrease the severity of my flares and symptoms in all realms, not just with heat waves. Now when I feel a heatwave, yes I  feel them and often way before the weatherman predicts them, I address my symptoms immediately. The moment I feel swelling in my hips and sacrum, I alternate icing the areas, running pemf treatments, and applying a topical CBD oil. The same goes for when I feel any pressure or inflammation  around my spine and neck. By keeping those areas happy and keeping the pressure, swelling, and pain from getting out of control is what has been helping me. I also try to see my chiropractor, because an adjustment also helps relieve some of the pressure around my spine that I’m unable to relieve myself. Throughout the day I need nothing besides ice my Oska Pulse and a topical CBD oil to get through the day.  I will smoke or vape medical marijuana before bed or a little earlier depending on  how drastically I was able to decrease the swelling and keep it under control. But this is nothing new as I have a little medical marijuana before bed every night to help with insomnia. Click here to find out all the different ways that PEMF therapy has been improving my life since November of 2016.

The gift that keeps on giving

My pain management plan is the gift that keeps on giving.  With each passing year and new addition or tweak to my plan,  my pain and severity of my chronic illnesses decreases and my life improves. Because of my winning combination I was able to go out yesterday,  even though we are expecting triple digits tomorrow! It is why I am able to work today instead of spending my entire day in bed.   I began feeling the symptoms from this impending heatwave on Sunday. That is also when I began addressing the symptoms.  I didn’t wait and allow them to get out of control, I addressed them immediately.  Because the methods  I use are effective for my body, I was able to celebrate the 4th of July with family at Disneyland.  It was the best Independence Day that I have had since being diagnosed with fibromyalgia and psoriatic arthritis in 2003.

What about you?

Did you get to celebrate the 4th with family or friends or were you home alone in bed praying for the pain to end?  Look back at your past year. How many social engagements did you have to cancel?  How many holidays did you have to stay home while your family went out? Does your chronic pain ruin plans and/or holidays for your spouse and children? Have you made changes to how you treat your chronic pain and the symptoms from your chronic illnesses that limit how much you are physically able to do? If not, why not? There is no such thing as a one-size-fits-all pain management plan for any chronic illness including fibromyalgia and psoriatic arthritis. I am not saying that my plan is the best or even that it is the plan for you, I do however invite you to look at it to see if there isn’t something in my plan that could help you. I know you don’t enjoy having to cancel plans or spend the holidays in bed.  I know that because that was once me and I hated it.

If you are winning the Battle of excessive heat and your chronic illnesses I’d love to hear how you’re doing it. Be sure to share in the comments what you use, what you do, and how you are reclaiming your life. And as always if you have any questions about how I manage my chronic illnesses and my chronic pain and how I am winning my battle with them please ask.

toxic home (2)

 

Is your home making you sick? Sadly, it probably is and you just don’t know it.  Later this month, June 25th to be exact, I will be attending a free online summit that is all about transforming our toxic homes.

The Toxic Home Transformation Summit is a free online event that is bringing together a bunch of experts to help us identify the areas of our homes that are making us sicker or sicker than we have to be.  Do you even know where to begin searching for these toxins or what to do when you discover them?  I sure the heck don’t!!!

Join me and thousands of others who will be watching this free online event from June 25th thru July 9th. Click here to register for FREE.  Then click here to join me for an online discussion on Facebook! Prior to the event you can join me in discussing three early release videos that are only available to those who register early!!

+ Health-promoting (and inexpensive!) building and decorating materials
+ Vibrational frequencies that harm (and heal!)
+ The FACTS about detoxification (it’s important!)

+ Deal with mold, bacteria and fungus
+ Keep your “toxic body burden” as low as possible
+ Address carpet, paint, furniture, air and other “indoor” toxins

Knocking out sinus pain with PEMF

*This post contains affiliate links

oska sinuses rose

Are seasonal allergies preventing you from enjoying life?  Springtime blooms used to make me miserable.  Swollen/watery/itchy eyes, a stuffy/runny nose, and painful facial pressure left me with no other option other than to pop daily allergy pills.  Sometimes a second or third was needed, which left me drowsy or knocked me out completely.  That is until this year!

Fifteen months ago I began using PEMF therapy with Oska Pulse daily.  If you haven’t heard of it, Oska Pulse is a drug-free pain-relief device that uses pulsed electromagnetic fields.  Since I have reaped the benefits of pain-relief in regards to my chronic illnesses which include but are not limited to; fibromyalgia, psoriatic arthritis, psoriasis, degenerative disc disease, endometriosis, etc.  What I didn’t expect to experience was improvement in regards to my seasonal allergies.

PEMF therapy hasn’t cured me from my seasonal allergies.  Instead it has reduced the amount of inflammation that I experience.  In the past 15 months I have continually reduced the amount of allergy medication that I was taking.  Instead of taking one or more pills on a daily basis, this spring I have only needed one or three pills per month! When I feel my sinuses swelling I run one or more PEMF treatments on my face or forehead.  That alone is usually all I need to reduce the inflammation and pain. The longer I wait to treat, the more treatments I have to run.

To be able to reduce pain and inflammation without putting drugs into my system is a wonderful feeling.  I am not a doctor or scientist, I can’t explain how this device works.  What I can do is suggest that you click here to read about a study about PEMF therapy and sinusitis.  I also suggest that you click here to learn more about how PEMF therapy combats inflammation.  You may also follow my progress and see how all the different ways that PEMF therapy has improved my health and life by clicking here.
