Being put on bedrest (see post #2 for explanation) has put some kinks in my life… A little online shopping is smoothing them out…. Join The Disabled Diva’s Product Picks group on Facebook to find out what I purchased, why I purchased those items, and how they can help you too!
Just the thought of having someone else touch my feet used to send shivers down my spine. Then I discovered that when done well, a good foot massage can provide some amazing pain relief!!
You don’t have to book an expensive spa day or give up because you don’t know a massage therapist. Many years ago my husband, who has no massage experience whatsoever, took it upon himself to learn how to massage feet in order to help reduce my chronic pain. Through the years his technique has improved and so has the level of relief that I experience from his massages.
Find out why you need to say yes to a foot massage and pick up some tips to help your partner or friend learn how to help reduce your pain!

- Why PEMF therapy is a part of my daily pain management plan
- Why I fear doctors, hospitals, and test results
- Make your bed more comfortable for under $50
Stay tuned!! Next week I will share another more recent awful emergency room experience, a misdiagnosis, and what let to a surprising yet fitting diagnosis…..
Why PEMF therapy is part of my daily pain management plan
I don’t know about you, but when I find a pain relief medication/product/treatment that works, I make sure to use it every single day.
When that same thing continues to provide relief month after month and year after year, I have to tell everyone I know because I want them to experience the same relief that I have.

Here are my reasons for including PEMF therapy with Oska Pulse in my daily pain management plan.
Why I fear doctors, hospitals, and test results
Since my first chronic illness diagnosis in 2001, my life, that is my chronic life, has been nothing short of a nightmare.
I know my body well. In fact I know better than any test or doctor. Not to sound conceited, but not one test or scan has ever shown the destruction that has been taking place in my abdomen since 2003. NOT ONE!! However, my theories have been validated in surgery and each surgery was proved necessary.
Before you suggest that my fears aren’t warranted, I need for you to understand something…… I do not have White Coat Syndrome, where patients experience a higher blood pressure reading when at the doctor’s office, it goes way beyond that. My fears and phobias stem from incompetent care. Not from just one doctor or surgeon, I am talking double digits!!!
In case that is not enough of an explanation, here is a list of some of the reasons I fear doctors, hospitals, and test results……
How many nights do you lie awake wishing your bed was more comfortable?
Even with an amazing pain management plan, discomfort in bed has the ability to derail my attempt to sleep, interrupt my slumber, or increase my morning pain level.
Does this sound familiar?
Look, I get that not everybody has thousands of dollars just waiting to be spent on what feels like a selfish purchase, but that shouldn’t stop you from getting a good night’s sleep.
First, never allow yourself to think or listen to anyone who tells you that purchasing items to make it possible to sleep better is a selfish waste of money. A bed might just be a bed to someone who has never had to recover from surgery or was bedridden for weeks, months, or years from chronic pain or an illness. But for those of us who have, we KNOW that a comfortable bed plays an important role in our daily lives. That without reaching a restorative level of sleep, our pain increases and our productivity decreases.
Now let’s take a look at some products that are all priced under $50 and that will have you looking forward to going to bed instead of dreading it……..
