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….
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.
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.

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.

Not just mine, but everyone who has witnessed my life since chronic pain began invading it in 2001.

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!
