New health focus

Saturday, May 20, 2017

Well, I have several health issues, so most of these are checked regularly...Well, I don't do anything about the pain. I've chosen to live with it, rather than getting hooked on strong pain meds.
I've chosen two areas to focus and work on this week, because they go hand in hand...stress and anxiety. When I have an anxiety attack I get extremely stressed out.
I am on an anti-anxiety med, mostly for fibromyalgia. If I can sleep, I can usually avoid them. But, I've learned when one starts to pray, quote Scripture, and sing. If it just won't stop I either read or play a game on my tablet. MOST OF THE TIME I can pull myself out of it, but boy am I weak afterwards. I also seem to eat more when I'm stressed...so I'm really going to focus on staying calm this weak.

How about you?
