The going gets tough
Wednesday, April 09, 2014
Right now, I'm in bed and going to try to get some sleep. Been ill with some fevers, migraine, nausea and pain in my throat since this afternoon. It could be a virus, but also the withdrawal symptoms of the Lyrica. These symptoms are like coming off OXYCONTIN or HEROIN or ALCOHOL. It's a physical withdrawal and i was aware of what was coming. My sweet husband went to his doctor for Lyrica for his neuropathy (which he doesn't have despite his diabetes) and he wants to give it to me (for my Fibromialgy).
Well......i prefer to not use those drugs anymore despite all the benefits they have.
I also have been very ill last year (fatigue after a virus) and that took like 9 months of my life. So this is nothing. I can manage, i can handle this.
Don't think about what to eat (well as long as it's like healthy) and don't think about training.
I'm training my brain to produce it's own happy brainchemicals again.
Sometimes when your in bed being ill, it helps to think about your loved ones. I think about all the blessings in my life. My family and friends and husband.
My beautiful house and nice kitchen stuff to bake my own bread etc. My icecream machine. My o so comfortable bed and my soft, nice pillow. My world of warcraft game, the swimming pool, walmart at a walking distance from home, my sparkpeople book and activity tracker, the awesome recipe from that book that i made last night and how we enjoyed that meal. I'm thankful for all the skype telephone calls that I made to Holland and my mother and my daughter are doing ok. My father is really happy. The bedroom looks so cosy and that night lamp from Ross is awesome. The air conditioning is working and keeping me cool, the pain killers i took are helping me out and through the night.
I am in bed and counting my blessings. Counting your blessings and living from the point of view of appreciation is what causes health. To look at all the abundance in your life is creating wealth.
I am starting to feel better already.
