Tears: I hold them back, until pain pushes them out

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Tears: I hold them back, until pain pushes them out

If you see me crying, know that you are witnessing pain that I hope you never have to feel.

Whether it is one single tear rolling down my cheek or many pouring out of my eyes, they still represent the kind of pain you secretly wish upon the most wickedest of people.

Types of tears

Mourning

Living with chronic pain from illnesses such as fibromyalgia, psoriatic arthritis, endometriosis, abdominal adhesions, degenerative disc disease, and coccydynia forced me to change my life. Like most other chronically ill people, I had to say good-bye to my old life. We literally bury our old lives. We don’t move on, instead we start anew, which is terrifying in a body that is riddled with diseases we know nothing about.

Fear

It doesn’t matter what type of disease a person has, it could be an autoimmune, neurological, or parasitic disease and each person will fear what the future holds for them.  How long until they can’t walk?  How fast will their disease progress?  What if a cure is never found? Will I ever find pain relief?  How can I afford to live?  Who will take care of me?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Frustration

With every chronic illness comes frustration.  We are frustrated by many things such as but not limited to: not being able to do what we could before becoming sick, having our friends, family, and even doctors doubt our pain and illness, over the cost of care and medications that rarely help, from trying to be stronger than you are……

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Physical pain

Even with the best pain management plan, chronic pain is always there.  Even when I managed to bring my daily pain level down to 0-3, I was devastated by the pain I experienced from my car accident last year and later the fall I took while on my morning walk.  When I fell, the pain pushed the tears out of my eyes.  I had no idea I was even crying until my daughter noticed.  People who have lived in pain as long as I have don’t cry for no reason. Nor do we cry over minor pain.  So if someone who has lived with pain for 20 years starts crying because of a pain, it is serious.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Because I live with multiple chronic illnesses, I was shocked to be able to reduce the pain from all of them for as long as I did.  Unfortunately, the damage that I have sustained in my abdomen (problems with endometriosis and adhesions began in 2003) are continually presenting themselves and the worst part is there is nothing I can do to stop it.  Whenever I think I have calmed the storm that is taking place inside my belly, it comes back and laughs in my face. I am trying to be strong, I am trying to not allow it to disrupt my life, I am trying to hide from my family just how bad it is, but I am failing…… the tears that I keep whisking away give it all away……..

I am not going to tell you to hold back your tears.  Nor am I going to tell you to spend the rest of your life crying.  What I am going to tell you is this:  Trust your instincts! Fight for your body! Don’t give up and try everything.  Thankfully I do have a great pain management plan that is keeping all my other chronic illnesses happy at the moment. I honestly do not believe that I could go on if they were all flaring at the moment.  Find what works for you, even if it means doing what I did which was trying things that aren’t considered the norm in our healthcare system.

Never be ashamed of your tears.  They talk when your mouth can’t bring forth the words you need to say.

Kicking rain pain down the storm drain with PEMF therapy

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

As I shared on Facebook and Instagram Tuesday night, once again PEMF therapy saved the day!!  Southern California is experiencing a wet, cold week and my body isn’t happy.  Since adding PEMF therapy with Oska Pulse to my daily pain management plan, I have been able to greatly reduce how poorly my body reacts to the pressure that pushes storms in.  However, multiple storms still rock my world a bit.

*Disclosure: This post includes affiliate links. Meaning that at no additional cost to you, I receive a commission when you make a purchase through my links. The proceeds earned fund the giveaways I host in my Facebook groups.

Since Saturday, I have been able to keep the pain I typically experience from fibromyalgia and psoriatic arthritis when storms occur by running PEMF treatments up and down my spine.  Around 4pm on Tuesday, an unbearable pain overtook my collarbone.  It seriously felt like a toddler was jumping up and down on it!! With tears in my eyes, I scrambled to figure out how to relieve it.  Besides still having some work that I needed to finish, it was too early for me to medicate with cannabis.  My topical CBD oil relaxed the muscle, but it wasn’t touching the bone pain.  Then it hit me, duh!! Put Oska Pulse on it!!!! Ninety minutes later and the pain was gone!!! Not only did I achieve complete relief, I did without any medications.  I honestly have no idea how I ever lived without my Oska Pulse.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In case you haven’t heard, Oska Pulse has been improved! Instead of only having the capability to run 30 minute treatments, it now runs for 90 FULL MINUTES!!! So while I had to hit the on button three times to go through 90 minutes of treatments, those who order the new version only have to hit it once!

I Wish That I Had Tried This Before Having a Hysterectomy

 

I regret my hysterectomy, but not for the reasons one would assume…..  I was done having kids and I didn’t care about being thrown into early menopause.  The reason I regret having one was because now I see that I had other options to combat the pain from endometriosis.  That if my doctors had offered me a chance to try what I am using now to win my battle with abdominal adhesions, I may not have had to live with the fallout of a botched hysterectomy and the troubles that still linger from it.

The Diagnosis

I was diagnosed with endometriosis in spring of 2004.  In a way I am lucky that my diagnosis was made in less than a year from the point when I first went to my doctor to discuss my pain.  After six months of tracking my pain, an exploratory surgery revealed that I had a giant ovarian cyst.  It attached itself to my bladder, uterus, and left fallopian tube and pulled them to my left sidewall.  My fallopian tube had actually adhered to the sidewall and had to be cut loose.  Sadly the relief from this clean-up only lasted six months.

The proceeds offset the expense of operating this site and fund the giveaways for my Facebook groups.

Their Solution

After tracking my symptoms for another six months I returned to my doctor.  At that time he said that a hysterectomy would be my only option.  Not wanting to disrupt my family’s life throughout the school year, I asked that we schedule it after school let out for the summer.  Knowing I would need the summer to recover, my husband and I decided the family should spend a week at Disneyland before I had surgery.  Long story short, I ended up having an emergency appendectomy on our second day and had to postpone my hysterectomy until I had healed.  Like I said, that is another story that I will share fully another time….  Anyways, not once was I offered any other solution to my pain other than a hysterectomy and pain medication.  So a hysterectomy it was…….  The hysterectomy revealed multiple ovarian cysts and a belly full of adhesions pulling all of my internal organs in every direction.

The Fallout

I really wish I had been into researching natural and alternative ways to relieve pain and deal with health issues back then.  Had I known that there could have been a way to avoid having a hysterectomy, I would have jumped at the opportunity.  The surgery was a disaster.  My surgeon left behind a large portion of my left fallopian tube and a $hitload of ovarian remnants.  The remnants embedded themselves into my abdominal wall and cervix and the fallopian tube remnant was covered in endometriosis, infected, and embedded into my sidewall.  The first follow-up surgery to address my pain and find the beginning of the aftermath took place 2 years after the hysterectomy because 20 surgeons refused to listen to me.  It was finally the 21st who didn’t suggest that I see a psychiatrist or blame it on fibromyalgia.  Soon before this surgery the adhesions began strangling my bowels.  This pain comes and goes, relief could only be achieved via surgery or internal ripping of the adhesions themselves.  And yes, both are as painful as you can imagine.

Wishful Thinking

I was told that I would be pain-free after my hysterectomy.  After two more surgeries to address the mistakes made in the hysterectomy I was assured that I would no longer know the agony I had been living with.  They were wrong!!! The worst part is when the adhesions severely attacked my bowels again in 2016, I was told that there was nothing that could be done for me.  My HMO refused to approve surgery, saying that the adhesions would just return.  It didn’t matter that they were killing me……… When I asked about ultrasound therapy, they responded with “it is not a known therapy within our network and we will NOT be looking into it”.

My Blue Genie

I love the genie from Aladdin and that is what I think of whenever I look at my PEMF therapy device, Oska Pulse.  This beautiful piece of technology has done for me in the past two years, what doctors have been telling me wasn’t possible.  In March of 2017, adhesions once again attacked my bowels after a 3 month reprieve.  I was as exhausted as I was in pain.  At this time I had been using my Oska Pulse a few times a week on my knee after exercising.  After talking with someone who was using it to combat pain from endometriosis, I decided to give it try.  I began by wearing in on my belly and focusing on the areas that hurt the most.  I wore and ran my device every day, from the moment I awoke to the moment I went to bed.  Within a few days the swelling and pain decreased.  After a week, I no longer felt pain where my hysterectomy scar was and I have had pain there since 2005.  Two weeks later and I could sleep on my stomach, something that I hadn’t been able to do since 2004.

What the heck happened?

What my PEMF device has done for me we will never know.  Adhesions never show in any test ran by my doctors and surgery would be the only way to see inside.  With that said, the relief I have been experiencing is nothing like I have ever felt.  My organs are no longer being pulled in unnatural directions.  I no longer experience a ripping or bleeding sensation inside my sidewall.  Outside of dealing with the fallout of weak abdominal muscles and intestines that have been injured from adhesions, my belly feels almost as good as I did before my first ovarian cyst.

So here is my question…… Why isn’t this being offered to women?  Why are women being told that surgery is their only option?  And then after they have X amount of surgeries are turned down because they don’t want to put our bodies through more?  This simple piece of technology has not only provided pain relief, it addressed the source of my pain!!!  And this isn’t the only chronic illness that it has improved for me.  Click here to learn about the rest.

If you are suffering in pain from endometriosis, please consider looking into PEMF therapy.  Click here to learn about several different options available.  If a hysterectomy didn’t provide you with the relief you thought it would, I highly recommend looking into PEMF therapy.  Click here for third party reports about how this type of therapy has helped with numerous illnesses/symptoms.  My favorite device is Oska Pulse.  Not just because I am an affiliate with them (BTW my discount code DIVA will save you $55.00), but because it is the most portable, affordable, and easiest to use device on the market.  But don’t take my word, visit Oska Wellness and see for yourself.  I could have possibly avoided 4 surgeries and the errors that have left me with life long injuries had this type of device been available to me.  Anyways, take a look and remember, with their 30 day refund policy, you have nothing to lose but pain.

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!!!

Addressing my symptoms one at a time

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In the fall of 2012 I made the decision to treat my chronic illness naturally and alternatively.  At this point I had been living with excruciating pain from fibromyalgia, psoriasis, psoriatic arthritis, and endometriosis for 12 years.  During those years I treated my conditions and pain pharmaceutically.  I never experienced relief or improvements.  In fact my conditions were rapidly getting worse and opioids would occasionally mask my pain for an hour or two or barely take it down a notch. I was lucky to sleep for 4 hours and most of the time I only slept in 20 minute increments. To add insult to injury, the side effects from my prescriptions, including opioids, were adding more health issues and pain.  In this post I am sharing how I began my alternative journey, what I did, and how I went from being consumed with pain and not being able to walk, sit, or stand for more than 5 minutes to walking 4-9 miles a day and no longer needing a wheelchair.
