I wanted to share my favorite products I use on a daily bases for my self-care and products that ease my pain during recovery from a flare or daily pains.
Every night before I fall asleep, I use Yves Rocher Anti-Fatigue/Anti-Tiredness Foot Soothing Iced Gel & Yves Rocher Light Legs Fresh Gel. I just discovered these Yves Rocher products this month and I love them very much, I don't hurt as much in the morning.
My favorite pain relief topical cream is by Mind Body Matrix. I was gifted a sample size bottle last summer when I joined the International Fibromyalgia Coaching Institute. I was so pleased that I felt immediate relief in my back, neck, and shoulders (or wherever else, I had applied it for pain relief). It is a pricey item, but I believe it is worth the cost, for it's an alternative to prescription medication that I don't have access to.
I use an essential oil called Worry Not, I apply it at bedtime on my wrists, breathe in the aroma and peacefully fall asleep.
If I have a headache, I use a frozen eye pillow created by KrumaCreations, either on the back of my neck or over my eyes.
As I am writing this post, I am days away from completing my first semester in the IWAP program. Thus far, my grades are looking good and I believe I had a successful school term this fall. I have one paper left to complete and one quiz on Tuesday.
I have struggled a lot this month, my fatigue and pain is overpowering me. I am looking forward to having a break from school and really excited for next month to begin. I have appointments booked in January with a naturopathic doctor, I will start my intake paperwork next week and plan out what tests need to get covered to help me get my energy and strength back, and I restart physiotherapy for my knee. I need to make a plan for my eating habits in the new year as I feel completely drained and unable to prepare healthy meals for myself.
