Countdown to 50: To make my dreams come true, I had to open my mind

 

Read series from the beginning.

I had to open my mind to make my dreams come true!

Only a few more days left!!!!!

Had I not opened my mind and allowed myself to believe that there had to be a better way to treat chronic pain from fibromyalgia, psoriatic arthritis, psoriasis, endometriosis, and degenerative disc disease, I wouldn’t be here today.  Wondering what it was that I needed to open my mind to?  Read on….

Prescriptions aren’t always the answer

To be clear, I am not completely anti-medicine.  I am however against medications that don’t enhance or improve a condition/symptom or that make life harder or more painful for the patient.  When chronic pain first hijacked my body, I went to my doctor knowing that his answer would come from his prescription pad.  What I didn’t expect was that each pill would end up making me sicker and destroy life as I knew it.

Cannabis isn’t just for hippies

I resisted trying cannabis for many reasons.  One being that I had a bad experience with laced pot in my younger years.  Another was that I didn’t want to labeled a stoner.  Click here to see what other reasons I have heard for not trying cannabis for pain relief. I had to open my mind and recognize that it wasn’t just hippies that were smoking it, there were already tons of patients successfully treating chronic pain and other disorders with it.  I wasn’t going to be the first housewife to try it, nor would I be the last.

Be open to new ideas

When I first heard about PEMF therapy with Oska Pulse, I refused to believe that a simple device could relieve pain.  Yet it did that and more.  Thank goodness I didn’t give up after just a few uses, because what happened after a few months and now two years of using it has blown my mind.  Not just mine, but everyone who has witnessed my life since chronic pain began invading it in 2001.  But don’t just take my word for how well this piece of technology addresses inflammation and pain, click here to hear what others have to say too. BTW you can read about my experience from the beginning by clicking here.  I am an affiliate with Oska Wellness, the makers of Oska Pulse.  The reason I became one was to be able to offer my readers a discount on a device that, if used religiously and with patience, will change their lives.  So don’t forget to enter promo code DIVA at checkout to save $55.00.

Last but not least, if you are struggling to figure out how to live with chronic pain, check out my eBook Make Pain Your Bitch: How to Dominate Your Chronic Life.  In it I share lifestyle, pain management, and attitude changes that must take place.  You will be challenged and given the kick in the pants you need to make the next years of your life the best they can be! My book costs less than a venti caramel macchiato from Starbucks.  Isn’t your future worth a cup of coffee?

 

 

What if Cinderella had retrieved her glass slipper?

never look back.jpg

Had Cinderella gone back for her shoe, she would have had two shoes, but she wouldn’t have become a princess.
How often you find yourself going back and trying to do things that you haven’t been able to do since you became chronically ill only to discover that nothing had changed, that it was still too difficult to do? I am not saying that desiring to do some of those activities is altogether terrible, but have you considered that there may be a whole new set of activities waiting to be discovered?
It’s not like Cinderella never wore two shoes again, she just wore different shoes.
You can spend your life constantly looking backwards in search of lost shoes or you can accept your loss and slip your foot into a new pair. A new pair of shoes may not be the same as your old ones, they may feel restrictive at first or a little wobbly, but as long as you don’t toss them in the back of your closet they will lead you on great adventures!
