working on my attitude

Sunday, January 26, 2014

I am trying to get a new attitude. I have been in a real funk since the first of the year. I have days where it gets a little bit better, but then I go back down. I have a large bruise on my stump, and a lot of pain walking in my socket. I am supposed to be getting my definitive leg soon. Hopefully that will help.

    I know the feeling of not be cheerful all the time when you deal with chronic pain. I have the same issue with my knees, but I make myself turn to other things to get my mind off of my knees, and on days that my knees curtail a lot of movement, I try to find things to do from seated positions. I know my chair exercises aren't as effective as my normal ones, but they are better than nothing and I feel I have done something to work toward my goals. I think you new leg will improve the way you are feeling and things will start looking up!

    I think winter tends to bring on a bad attitude and the stress on your stump must make it even worse in the bad weather. Let's hope for lots of sunshine and an early spring!

    PS I think you are amazing!

    You are entitled to a few days of being down but it really doesn't do you any good. I have a magnet on my fridge that I read when I'm down.

    It says: Attitude is everything. Pick a good one. emoticon

    Pain, especially chronic pain, is difficult to live with. I truly believe that once you get your new leg, your life will improve 100%. You are a very courageous man and I hope you give yourself credit for that on your sad days. Look at yourself in the mirror and say "I am a courageous man who is an inspiration to others" because you are, my friend. emoticon emoticon emoticon

    God bless,

    When you are in pain a lot, it is easy to get in a funk. But since you are aware of the funk, you know what to do to get out of it. You have done it before and will do it again. You can try to focus on all the positive things you have accomplished. emoticon

    I'm sorry you are struggling with your emotional aspect of all of this. Have you set an achievable goals lately to work towards? Something simple that you can easily strive for an attain. Then set a reward of something you want. It may be just what you need to push your attitude into the positive column.
