Hi Folks, it was my 46th Bday yesterday and I had a nice meal with my mum n sis in day and in between torrential rain it was lovely and sunny. In the evening I went for an indian meal with my close belly dance teacher friend and we a complete stranger (guy) whose train had been stopped by a fallen tree was asking us about the restaurant and the town where he was etc. Well my friend and I are like a couple of teenagers when we haven't got together for a while and we both have the energy. The guy thanked us for chatting to him shook our hand and left, or we thought he had, then he came back gave us a receipt and said its been such a pleasure, cos we had been having a laugh with him, my friend speaks 5 languages, he asked if I did. I said I had a degree in bullshit! Anyway I am rambling, but he paid for our meal!!!!! How nice was that?! My friend said you can't do that, he just smiled and left. Hope you don't think I am bragging just wanted to share with you that there are still nice people out there who just do lovely things. Wouldn't it be nice if more people just did a little something for someone unexpectedley? I have a couple of things bit like mantras that I say to myself everyday and one is even if I am afraid of trying or doing something, will it kill me? If not just give it a little go. The other is every day, to make a difference to someone else's life. I'm sure you all know that when you do something nice and feel happy eat chocolate etc you get a rush of endorphins that make you feel good. This also helps with pain. It really does. Its hard but why don't you try it? I don't go gym very often and sometimes just for ten minutes but it does help me to relieve the pain.
Arnica is sooooo good for my pain, I get SBC's arnica bath soak and gel and if you don't like it you can return it for a full refund, you just pay for postage,
Please talk to your GP re test for vit D defiency, I am sooo deficient in it and when I miss my Calcichew tabs it makes such a difference. Also look at what you eat every day, try changing one thing for few weeks. My triggers are wheat in certain things, like cheap bread, cheap pizzas, some cakes n biscs, even drinks and choc can have wheat in. Oranges, or orange juice or cordial, and cooked tomatoes,.
Anything you fancy doing that makes you laugh mine was Belly dancing, I was and am not tooooo good at it but laugh! I help my friend with classes and involve some elderly ladies to join in and am exhausted but happy at end of it.
I do work and the other blogs about us all being individual are soo true. I look well some time and some times I look sooo exhausted and it is so hard to try to have anything left for me to have a life too. I am trying to think bout me more but I feel selfish in doing so sometimes. But we all have to look after ourselves first so we can do anything else we have to.
