First Week of Pain Management Clinic Over
A few interesting facts I learned is that folks with fibromyalgia have a lower pain thresholds than typical folks. I found out that suicidal thoughts and tendencies are genetic. I had no idea. I learned(like I didn't already know) that committing suicide is a big fuck you to everyone who loves you. I learned about the 4F's diet will help me if I can just be willing to give up red meat(mmm steak, juicy, bloody, yummy).
I decided to do a few online SMART meetings but I am also going to check into meetings called family groups or something for people with co-dependant families, like me. I have been listening to a meditation every night since the first night and I have to go 30 straight days or start over. I, also have to attach a word to it so in the future when I need to relax or calm down I can just think of that word and poof I'm there in that meditative state. We had to go out 3 hours today and have fun. We went to the Big Creek Reservation near us and walked with the kids and hung out by a creek. Well, Maddie hung out on the edge and in it collecting rocks. She made a playmate, which always surprises me. You know the golden rule, autism doesn't make friends! So ridiculous and wrong!
Tomorrow is church for 3 hours and I joined the choir! I need to practice right now actually. I have one prayer shawl done and 2 more in the works for the ministry and 1 in the making for my shop. I sold another costume because I forgot to put the shop on vacation while I was in the program. Oh well, it should go faster this time and I think it may be the same size as Abi again:-) Pictures on her! I will chew on the rest of last week before I reveal more of what I learned.
ta ta for now,
