A Little Trick I Learned

Do you suffer from neck pain, nerve pain in your neck that goes down your arms and back and up into your head.
I was chatting with a lady from Europe who just bought a neck brace and who was receiving a lot of pain relief from that.
She told me to try and wrap a scarf around my neck.
I was skeptical at first, I mean how can a scarf help to relieve the pain I was experiencing in my neck?
This morning I did it, I wrapped a hair scarf around my neck and it is working.  My neck feels supported and it is easier to hold my neck up ~ hallelujah!!!
Thank you God for bringing me to this simple little pain relieving trick.
Now on to better and bigger things so I don't have to worry about my neck for now.
Who knows, this just might work for you!
Hugs and many blessings everyone
I am praying for you.

Sometimes It's Worth It!

Photo: Today is just a 'two teas' start to the day!  Pondering the beautiful verse I discovered yesterday... "God is within her, she will not fall;". Psalm 46:5. How beautiful an image this places in my heart Lord.  Thank you for Your mercy. #scripture #devotions #God's #moving #in #me

Met a fellow 'spoonie' on Wednesday.  It was so nice to talk with someone who could fully understand the pain... we had lovely conversation and only lost train of thought about four times with each other. 
We laughed because this happens to both of us all the time!

I went knowing that I would pay for it for the next couple of days,
she went knowing this as well...

and we were both fine with that!

It was just lovely to get out of the house,
to get out of our beds and pretty ourselves
up (as much as a spoonie can)
and visit with a good friend.

I don't know about you, but when I meet another 'spoonie'
it's like getting together with a long lost friend every time.
There is always an instant connection, a relation to one another that
only another 'spoonie' can understand.

Jill was such a lovely lady and I look forward to getting together with her again.

Living with a Chronic Illness means we have to choose how we spend our time very wisely.

My time was well spent with Jill.  I felt good.  I got out of the house.
I laughed.

God is always good.

If you are reading this and it is resonating with your soul about getting out of the house, making a choice knowing that you will pay for it later...

I say do it!  Live your life and try not to let the 'illness' BE your life.

Hugs and many blessings to you.
