When the fog sets in
Setting up fog lights
- Rest - I know that my CD symptoms get much worse the more exhausted I become.Tonight's burn was a real wake-up call for me. I should NEVER be doing anything where I could potentially hurt myself when I'm in that state.
- Set up safety measures - I bought myself a detailed pill organizer so that I would know if I took my medications or not. I didn't like the fact that I had gotten this bad, but my safety is far more important to me than my bruised ego.
- Talk to your doctor - Some pain medications can actually made CD issues worse. Talk to your doctor about your concerns and see if there is a different medication you can use.
- Stay calm - Getting stressed out over our CD issues only makes them worse. Every time I started freaking out over my seriously burned fingers, I talked myself down and gave it over to God. It's amazing how well that works!
For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind. 2 Timothy 1:7
