Default Physical Check-In #2

Starting a new thread since we exceeded 100 pages with the last one. I'm looking forward to hearing how everyone is doing physically.

For anyone new, this is a thread where we discuss our physical successes and struggles. We also share eating plan updates and ideas, exercise stories, and in general how our bodies are feeling. Bipolar disorder is more than just a mental experience, so I invite everyone to jump in and focus on this aspect of our health together.

BirdDancer, I was 'rolling' after reading the Obama story. Too funny!

I also thought it was hysterical that the government had gotten involved at some point in the pork roll story and had deemed that it was 'not legally ham' and Taylor had to change their name.

I tell my kids they should strive to learn something every day. My education for today is complete. Ha!

LOL! Thanks for joining me in the fun of this. Thanks to wildchildflower for sparking it.

I am starting to feel better. I'm sure time, relaxation, and of course the antibiotics, are to thank. I did much more yesterday than I have done for several days. Hubby especially appreciated the nice dinner I prepared. I'm thinking how long it's been since I exercised. Being sick, I've felt incredibly weak and tire easily. I don't know how much exercise would be good and how much would be detrimental.

Bizi, you are rocking it! Keep goin' one day at a time.

Hugs to my PC friends that continue to deal with pain and physical discomfort.

Iím four days cigarette and nicotine free. Getting through by chewing lots of gum! The longest iíve gone since my son was born (I didnít smoke while pregnant) has been 5.5 months and that was while vaping. This is the first attempt Iíve made without a vape. We shall see! Itís getting easier.

Heart Re: Physical Check-In #2

Thanks fern, for the 1st thread and this one, too.!

Congrats to Bizi and to WIldflowerchild!!!

It's quite a challenge to make it 47 days AF!!
It is also quite a challenge to make it 4 days with not smoking!!!

Both are a day at a time... or maybe an hour at a time sometimes.

I had fallen into smoking in my early 20's only because everyone I had worked with were smokers. I had started to have a smoke here and there and ... well, we all know what happened! I had tried many times to quit, using different approaches.. I wanted desperately to quit. It took me almost 3 years of trying and failing, trying and failing, on and on it went. In time, I had tried the nicotine gum and became addicted to that! It was better than smoking; however, the addiction was very strong! It took me another year to get off of the nicotine gum, which I did by switching to the patch and chewing a lot of gum!

All of this to say: It is very tough to give up addictions. I admire anyone who is able to do so. I have absolutely no judgment of anyone unable to quit their addiction, whatever it may be. True addictions are so very tough to kick and not everyone can do it.

Much Love to All!

Heart Re: Physical Check-In #2

I hate to say it, I really do... I am in such pain.

I have been here at PC, trying to distract myself and it has worked, to some degree.
A lot of it is searing pain (nerves). I am trying to breathe my way through it. Ugghh!
There is not much else my doctors can do. I already have access to meds the ER might give me (if they practice true and compassionate pain relief,. that is..)

I have seen all kinds of specialists in medicine and in holistic healthcare for the past 30 years.
I am working with my chiropractor, as she and I often find a way to find some relief. She is very intuitive and creative and we make a great team.
If nothing else, it is very healing to know she is always willing to do her best to help out!

I hope everyone is having a good day!

It makes me sad that you, Christina, and some others here, suffer so much from pain, and often insomnia that comes with it. Nerve pain sounds so horrible! I guess at least muscle pains can be a little easier to temporarily relieve with massage, and such.

I'm very much hoping that some better treatments are created, for pain, in the future. Definitely ones that do more good than harm (by harm I'm referring to opiods, and such).
