Somewhat positive update

#1

I've been doing pretty well. Lyrica seems to be helping to keep the tingling, stiffness, and some of the pain at bay for now. I am currently doing a Candida cleanse because my Chiro thinks its all just a build up of yeast in my system....not sure if anyone has experienced this!?

Yesterday I suffered a really bad bout of anger and took it out on anyone who would come near me. I never experienced that before, usually my anxiety medication keeps me pretty calm. Not to mention every little thing anyone did worked my nerves! LOL

Other than that, I have felt well. Still stressful dealing with a variety of doctors who think they know best and I just want to stop seeing them all sometimes! Going to make this a good day and enjoy it to the best of my ability.

May all readers be blessed with pain free and fun filled days!

About your bout of Anger, when I am like that I apologize in advance.....I am sorry if I sound Grumpy today. Sometimes I find myself shouting & I also apologize for shouting (to me shouting is a part of being Angry for no absolute reason)

When I become Snippy in my opinions of others actions or statements. I say outloud "Happy, Cheerful, Chirpy. Happy Cheerful, Chirpy. I, want, to, be, Happy, Cheerful & Chirpy!!!" over & over & over..... I once knew a lady who was Happy, Cheerful & Chirpy. I could only last about an hour with her before I wanted to make her Unhappy, Uncheerful & Unchirpy!

About Chiro's they think differently then MD's, they usu are into Herbologists, Messages & the realigning of our skelital beings.

I'm not glad you get angry, but I'm glad I am not alone in sharing the anger feelings! I really feel bad the next day. I am going to have to come up with a "happy" chant to try to break the solemness of my attitude when I get like that. Thanks for the response!

Hi. I am glad that you are dealing with your feelings as that is a very positive and wonderful thing to do. I hope i can tell you that I do not get
angry or irrited with myself or others and i am not bitter. Please do not think i am in denial as severe,scary and disabling illness put me on a difficult path , for sure. But while i was physicall ill my mind amd spirit took a new path, one where i became tolerant,compassionate , forgivining and kinder to myself snd others. The negative thoughts and feelings just turned around and i understood that negative thougths feelings will only harm me on my journey for wellness. Somehow i am feeling right now that i may be chided for this attitude. I have been occassioonally as others told me that i was in denial or not being real. But i assure you i am. Of course i do not rejoice in illness. Heck no! But i am grateful for many of the freedoms that i have right now and that at this moment i can breathe on my own, take a few steps, hold a fork to my own lips and write theses words and talk and read . My gratitude is deep. So for me , for now and always i am not bitter nor angry. I hope you can still accept and be my friend. Thank you

Suzie,

I am sure that right now that is just where you are. Most the time I'm in a similar place. It took me a while to get there but now when I get thrown a curve ball, I get back there quicker.wb Before feeling poison your body.

Hello,

This is heavy stuff, James, and I think Suzie has a very positive attitude, we can all learn from her! One of the things/ affirmations i have learnt is 'being in the battle is half the battle'. I think we need to let go, and live in the here and now.. Mindfulness teaches you this, have you considered that approach? It is really very good, and there is a group on here you can join.

HUGGGGGS to All !!!

I am trying to get on a path of self discovery and hopefully mental and spiritual healing....I just often have setbacks as I'm sure many do. I am grateful for many things in life but its the small things (that are usually not so small in the scheme of things) that I take for granted and I need to work on.

I am GLAD you have found a peaceful path to walk and there is no way I cannot deny a friendship because of someone's opinion or feelings....especially someone that is suffering a condition similar to mine (I say allegedly because still waiting for my "diagnosis" for what that's worth). You will never offend me by voicing your opinion and if truth be known, maybe that is what I need to slap me on to my peaceful path!

HUGS and good thoughts to you!

James

Hi James . Thank you very much for your kind words and glad to know that you are my friend and that I have not offended you in anyway . My journey with illness began 32 years ago with an emergency surgey to save my life. I have had so many twists and turns and had gone through many emotions but somewhere on this journey I came to the other knowledge and emotions that I mentioned above that has brought me on this new journey of peace which is certainly something I like to share. It has been very lovely to meet you indeed. Be well . Have peace!

HUGGGGGGS<<br /> Suzie
