Hey everyone, how are you?
I know that the last couple of days I have been MIA in terms of blog posts.
The Last Couple Of Days
For the last couple of days I have been in an horrendous amount of pain. And I was having a lot of really bad thoughts as well, as the physical pain was bringing down my mental health. I was spending the day in bed in the dark as natural light is too bright for me. I was/still am finding it hard to look at a screen for a long period of time. Which means most of the time I have not been able to do my usual distractions as they involve either loud noise or screen time. I spent most of the time in the dark with a tiny amount of light reading for short amounts of time. Or sleeping because of the side effects of the pain medication that I have to take.
Like I said, I was having really bad thoughts in my head triggered by the physical pain. That I ended up in The Haven on Thursday night. I needed to be in a safe place other wise I knew that I would not be able to hold off the thoughts on my own. They understood why I was there and the thoughts that I was having. And the impact that a physical condition can have on your mental health. They made my chair/bay as dark as possible and I was able to have my pain medication when I needed it. I spent the night there and it was a good call. Although I found it hard to sleep, I was able to in the end. I came home in the morning and was able to continue to rest there without the thoughts bombarding me at every turn.
Now that I am home I am going to take things easily. I rested for the rest of the morning yesterday. And was able to eat something and rest some more. The pain has started to not be as bad as it has been and I am still taking the medication as required. Over the weekend I am just going to take things as they come. I don’t want to plan anything and then not be able to do it. As that will frustrate me more. Thankfully on Monday next week, I have another appointment for some more fascial manipulation so I am hoping that the second treatment will make the headache go completely.
Thank you for reading and I hope that you have a good day.
