Head Pain

I got stuck a few weeks ago.

I kept recycling some stressors around in my head. With the negativity came a boost in pain and fatigue. I felt awful.

Now that I’m out of it and have some distance, I was able to recognise it for what it was. Unnecessary fear and anxiety.

If only I could learn to be more hardy about my limits and not get so down when other people the fibro relief bookdon’t get them. (An ongoing point of learning)

I’m reading The Fibromyalgia Relief Book: 213 Ideas for Improving the Quality of Your Life by Miryam Erlich Williamson. I’ve taken many notes, including some exercises to do at work for my neck. This quote spoke to me:

“…fear and anxiety accentuate pain. If you can get your emotions under control, you will have taken a giant step toward controlling your pain.” P108

It’s so true, yet I constantly forget. When I can maintain a positive mindset, I’m doing my body a favour. Also, it makes a life that’s already hard nicer.
