This weather was giving me a real run for my money . How about you ?
I am a 58 year old woman, menopausal, I have Lupus , fybro , reynards, osteo and rheumatoid arthritis.
It can be so hard to enjoy the Christmas season with your friends and family when all you can do is think about the pain you are in .
It can really play a number on you emotionally as well . Depression during the holidays is something that many people go through for many different reasons . Chronic Pain being at the top of the list.
This is just one aspect of my thought process
That being said your state of mind can either make your issue worse or better depending on whether you are a positive person or a negative person , especially when dealing with Chronic Pain .
No one wants to give in to the pain , be short tempered , angry , mean or any other negative emotion that chronic pain can evoke . It just simply happens and before you know it you begin to pull away from the people that you love and care about, because you do not want to " bring them down during the holidays " . or " I don't want to be a burden to my friends and family " . When in truth all you want is for someone anyone to tell you that you don't have to suffer.
I am one of those people . Super Mom , super friend , super family member super at my job . Oh yes I could do it all . Then one day I got a wake up call. I almost died my liver was not functioning properly and was going downhill fast . My body and mind were full . Full of Toxins . My blood, my skin,hair, nails and my mind. Everything that made me"me". It was then and there that I decided that I deserved a much better quality of life than the one that I was currently living . So my Journey of discovery began.
I started to look at the world and myself in a very different way . I opened my mind to alternative medicines and the power of the mind; and I have been moving forward ever since.
We do not have to settle for pain treatments in the form of pharmaceuticals.
I knew "Plant Based Medicine " was the key. Now I live a Better Quality of life than I ever expected. My pain management routine and our products have been very effective in helping me to live a "Pain Free Life" .
