My "sports hobbies" arent just cause Im good at it. If I stop being in motion... Im in pain. I have significant nerve damage and neuropathy. I tried
the stuff the sports med guy, neurologist, and ortho surgeon suggested for a VERY short time. I have to keep my head in the game and cant take opiates
or etc. If I cant feel when Im hurting myself.. I REALLY hurt myself. Id been on everything mentioned including Dilaudid and the newer time release
morphine. Nothing gave me what I needed. Sure, the pain was less... but so was everything else. You wil live a half life. Shouldnt do that as you only
get ONE life and must live it fully. I am too much of a hard driven person to allow myself in the opiate prison. Youre NEVER going to get what you
want and how you want to live with the crap pain control stuff thats common. Here is what I have done...
Forget all diagnoses... forget all prognoses.. dont look for all your answers from modern medicine or their compulsion to categorize and label stuff.
It will work against you.
nothing eaten that is prepared by anyone else but me
ALL NATURAL meats and etc.. grow my own veggies and etc as well.
NO tap water.. reverse osmosis water alone.. and a LOT of it.
Horizant.. its a better form of Lyrica. I was on Lyrica.. and it worked, but side effects sucked. Horizant was a godsend as I had NO side effects!
Skelaxin or diclofenafec are better for the issue than muscle relaxers.. THATS the problem.. muscles,nerves and soft tissue... and modern life. Some
of us arent built for modern sedentary weak life. Thats why our bodies decide to rebel against us. Listen to your body. Its telling you that your life
sucks and to change it radically and at any cost.
Motion and a very hard work out schedule... STAY IN MOTION. Im "retiring" from fighting, but Im not about to retire from the work outs and regime Im
on.. I feel Ill die if I do and Im very serious. The pain is overwhelming if I stop moving and pushing myself. It effects my mind as well. Im an old
woman and I am a top billed fighter locally and in the tri state area. If my old ass can do it.. YOU CAN. Our bodies are amazing biomachines. You have
to maintain the machine. Its DIFFICULT and requires a lot of will power. Again, if I can do it, you can do it. Ive done this being my age, with 3
kids, one a liver transplant recipient and one of them with a form of autism ( thats what we have to call it).. and a surprise baby later in life who
is 11. I also homeschooled them . I also work for the court system here. I also maintain a side business. I also volunteer at a few places working
with folks no one else wants to work with.. its a challenge! Push push push yourself.
Diet? Im NOT informing you on my diet.. mainly because if you ate what I ate.. youd be a fat slob. LOL! I have a high metabolism and Im 100%
Blackfeet... so my genetics are different than yours. I also stay in motion so I need a lot more fuel. Ive made so many mistakes in diet over the
years that Im afraid to guide anyone to a diet or the like because I dont want to harm you or anyone else. What we put into our bodies is so critical.
Get a great nutritionist or better yet what I have is a pretty well known naturopathic and wholistic dietician.
Side note.. be kind. Even in pain.. be a kind person. I have to fake it a lot of times... but being kind and polite to everyone is a thing that was
harder to harness in myself than anything else. Put GOOD things out there as much as you can.
