Pain Management Therapy suggests I find one thing daily that I am able to do...

Saturday, June 07, 2014

Regardless of crazy a$$ pain burning throughout my bod'. The animal that chronic pain has become can change and morph daily. Lesson: don't expect you can do a certain task daily. Be thankful for today if you can button those buttons, since you just don't know if those buttons will be so friendly tomorrow.

You have to learn to change and grow if you have a condition that does the same.

Case in point, I am VERY thankful today for being able to apply some make-up. I'm thankful for getting my eyebrows drawn on correctly (not looking angry or surprised. Success!)

So that's my 'one thing' for today. I swear it took me 20 minutes, and far too many curse words I might add. Whew!

Oh yes, and consciously try to hold tight to optimism. Keep that sense of humor in a headlock if it threatens to leave you. It's pure gold in tough times.

Happy Weekend guys. Don't let your eyebrows dictate your day! : ))

    emoticon My hubby has chronic pain also and is finally in a pain management clinic and we were just discussing that he should recognize that he may not be able to do a task every day because everyday will be different in both levels of pain and ability to do certain things.

    Your brows look awesome

    Hi beautiful. I am happy to read this blog and I know it is not easy for you to post so you need to give yourself extra credit for going beyond your "one thing". Your eye(s) and eyebrow(s) are GORGEOUS! OUCH on the hands and everything else, honey - d@mn that E.T.H.E.L.L. for tormenting you so. You do not deserve this pain and I wish I could make it go away and leave you alone. oxoxox SweetPea.

    We've been on this journey together a long time, but you're so vibrant and amazing that even though I "know" what you deal with, I forget. Thank you for sharing the picture of your hand. You amaze and inspire me with your fortitude. Congratulations on those fabulous eyebrows! I have two "good" hands and can't do mine as well. You are BEAUTIFUL!

    Just got mine done yesterday so I'm safe on the eyebrow front!! :) I'm still doing therapy and coming back very slowly from my torn meniscus. I know what you mean about being proud of doing one thing daily. We have to be happy with what we can do and not dwell on what we can't. Love the eyebrow by the way!! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Man, you're really good at eyebrow drawing! I've never been able to do it. Maybe one day you can teach me.
