A Pot of Hope at the end of the Painbow!!





Hey, hey!
Today I will be talking more about pain and how I reduce it.
After I went to hospital in Adelaide for the second time of intensive therapy, I did lots of physio and my foot got that little bit better each day. Unfortunately, now I have got pain in other parts of my body too. 😦 The pain not only lives in my foot now, it has spread to my hips, back, neck and I get lots of headaches and earaches. I have also been getting pain that feels like electric shocks down my whole body. So, we will be traveling in a plane to Melbourne to see a new doctor. Apparently, he is really good and we will only be there for a day. I will be traveling with my mum.
Anyway, back to pain and helping it, when I get extra pain in my back, arm or even my other foot, I like to use heat packs or a warm bath. The warmth helps my body relax, so hopefully it will do the same for you! Sometimes if I distract my brain, it helps too. Watching TV, or playing a game, or talking about something really important, are ways I distract myself. I find that music is also great for making me feel stronger. Sometimes just asking someone for a nice warm cuddle can bring comfort and happiness to me.
Like I said a few posts ago, using your imagination is very important, and it can get your mind off all the pain you can think of. Whenever I am in extra high pain, I say to myself all of this pain makes me stronger, and I will be unstoppable when I recover.

Remember when you are at the top of your own painbow, slide down and let a pot of hope and happiness catch you at the bottom!
So maybe you should think about taking my advice, because I know it works for me…well, sometimes!
FZ out!! πŸ™‚

PS. If you have got other ways to reduce pain that have helped you, please let me know how.
PPs. Have a beautiful day everyone!

    Hi FZ! I love how you are sharing your thoughts and practical suggestions about dealing with life when things aren’t going the way you would hope. You always have a fabulously positive look on things and I am always learning things from your posts. Thank you! πŸ™‚ When I am feeling pain in the body or mind or even in my heart, I find a warm bath with smelly salts helps me. My daughter has inherited my love of baths too! She tries to create a ‘day spa’ look in our little cluttered bathroom by lighting some candles, rolling up a towel for a head rest and putting ALL the junky bottles and toothbrushes in a cupboard for a minimalist look! Sometimes I will take in a tiny fancy bowl with something yummy to nibble on during the bath, or a good magazine. I agree, good music is also brilliant and can really take my mind off things that are stressing me out. I can’t decide which is more important great lyrics or a really cool rhythm….which do you prefer? Till your next post this is Neak out!

  6. Hi Neak! Thanks for your beautiful comment. I would say lyrics because you can express who you really are by writing them down, then singing them out.
    I have got something crafty coming up for my next post, so keep your eyes peeled…

    HI FZ…. this is Lily. I am using Neak’s email address because I wanted to message you myself. I was really sorry to hear that your pain is spreading. I hope the new Doctor will be a good help. When will you be going to Melbourne? But on the bright side, I love your blog and posts. Especially the pictures. They are really creative! I can’t believe you made the blog all by yourself!! Can’t wait for your new post!

    • Hey Lily! I will be in the plane to Melbourne this Thursday. I am a little nervous, but mostly excited.
      I am glad to hear you are interested in my posts, and I’m sure you will love my next one!! πŸ˜„
