Unusual Days

There are days that fly by, days spent enjoying the great out doors and days like the last few spent with body aches and pain.

Sometimes I can wish the pain away or subdue the pain with positive thinking.   Not so this week.

Oh I know many tricks of the trade but every once in a long while I just have to accept what I feel in the moment.

Time is the only cure.  The weather will change and with a shift in air pressure my body will return to normal.

I search for the good in every situation.  Today  I’m grateful for the quietness of the day.

How do you handle pain filled days?

  1. Some days are just some days, but all days are the ones I am grateful for, especially those spent with my best friend and partner, Doll. Pain or no pain for me every day spent this way is the greatest !!

  2. I think our brains NEED some days off to deal with new or old pain.. I call it defragging.. I hate it when I have a day where my PTSD is off the charts, but I always feel reborn after I’ve let my brain rest & think.. I feel cleaned out, whole. If I’m being dragged down too far into flashbacks & pain, I try to challenge myself, to set a goal for myself.. either something I haven’t finished in the past, or something new & unexpected. And I ALWAYS remind myself that life IS brutal for a lot of the time, & so much of it is out of our control. We can only try to handle it with as much honor & survival skills as we can. 🙂

    • I agree Sue. Thanks for sharing your wisdom. Sometimes I wish the PTSD didn’t come with physical aches and pains though. I breathe slowly and deeply. All becomes well..eventually. I see some extra knitting in my future. You are a wonderful person and dear friend.
