Today is my last day of bed rest. I am going to keep some of the things I have been doing like: 3 part yoga breathing to calm down, turning my phone off sometimes, making time to relax more and spending more time with God. Hopefully these things will become a routine.
Last night was a rough night. I woke up several times in pain from my legs and face. My legs are still on fire and tender. They hurt whenever anything touches them but I can’t be cold because then the bone in my leg will hurt. So I put on leggings to act as a second skin layer so I could wrap up in my blanket. It’s hard to lay down when your body is on fire. Oh did I mention the bottom of my butt cheeks are on fire too? 😱😱 Laying on my stomach to relieve my butt the swapping over to relieve my thighs… not to mention my face! Lol I like to sleep on my sides. I sleep with a body pillow/pregnancy pillow. It allows me to elevate my legs or back or whatever. BEST INVESTMENT!! I am about to try and get up and get ready for the day. How I’m feeling right now it will definitely be a crutches day. Why? To keep weight off of my legs and feet. Plus it’s like walking on fire🔥🔥🔥How do you sleep? Have you ever tried the body pillow?
Dinner was great and it was nice to see my family. I laid on the couch and did some homework! My fingers and my mind are on the same page and man does that feel good😄. I also took another pain pill. It did take away some of the pain away from my back and hands. Thank God!! My cousin with Lupus told me about a new natural med called Mega Red 4+1. We also talked about how diet effects our bodies! I know I will feel today’s meal this week but right now it was so worth it!!
I did a little grocery shopping and got gas for the week. The week ahead is going to be pretty busy but I got this!! This week I am going to continue to try and reach those goals I set on day 1. Some of them were mental so obviously I haven’t mastered them yet. I’m going to chose a scripture to say every morning. I will also write a declaration to declare over my life everyday. Try and get my mind right. I believe when that happens my body will follow! I hope you all have an amazing week!!! What is something this week that you are changing tobetter your future?
