Grattitude Journal

It has been too long since I've written one of these posts. But here is my attempt at starting again. Let's see if this post helps me feel a bit more hopeful. The pain and nausea are getting to me today, and I am nervous about tomorrow's appointment at the pain center. I'm hoping that this entry will help me focus on the positive.

I'm grateful fore:

  • Groceries in the fridge and cupboards.

  • The fact that none of my new supplements have made me sick.

  • The new medication I started a few weeks ago isn't making me sick anymore.

  • Julio has enough dog food again.

  • I got to see Baxter today.

  • My Mom was willing to help with getting food for the puppy and I.

  • I had a wonderful bath, even if it did make my pain worse.

  • The moisturization which happened as a result of the nourishing bath products I used means I'm not so itchy.

  • I'm comfortably sitting in front of my computer.

  • My sister is coming to my appointment tomorrow.

  • I had coffee today.

  • The headache I had did not turn into the evil kind which makes me even more nauseated, light sensitive, smell sensitive and sound sensitive.

  • My orthodics are working okay.

  • I'm reading a great book, which is always a plus.

  • Spring break is in a week.

  • I've managed to figure out how to bandage the bleeding wounds I've unintentionally caused myself today.

  • Today was warmer, and it is supposed to be decent outside this week.

  • I did have a few somewhat better days pain-wise.

  • I managed to get my dinner down today.

  • I've managed to find the energy to hope that I will feel better tomorrow.

  • I think I am slightly less sensitive when I wash my RSD leg thanks to the physical therapy.

    Radical acceptance is one of the toughest things I've worked on in DBT. It's hard to look at a situation and say "it is what it is." That always…
