How do I do it?


Absolutely nothing great about having to live by these rules but it certainly saves me alot of extra pain, I have more up time and, above all, I decided this is just temporary. I’ll do what it takes to get by most comfortably (if I can dare to use such a word for a chronic pain site!):

•I understand that everything I do counts, even a sneeze (ok they count alot!) so I make sure I pick and choose what I do
•I learned and practice the word pace
•I’m more selfish
•I say “I can’t” and recently I’ve even stopped apologising because “I can’t”!
•I let go of obligation (actually I need to work on that one)
•Keep any visit short, close, soft (not too many parties unless you can walk away)
•I email my WorkSafe case manager to eliminate hearing all unnecessary hogwash
•I have a daybed and made a ‘dayspace’ no where near a television or my bedroom
•I have a dog, he’s one of my biggest aids
