I feel the same way WILLOW....... I try not to look at the negative things..... I'm sure we all have bad days..... but it's how we react to those bad days that count...... I try not to worry about things I cannot fix or do anything about...... And I try to keep positive thoughts........ Whether I'm in pain or not..... We have to keep going....... And having someone you can vent to........ is wonderful..... let it out..... So I think it all depends on the person....... And that day..

I did look at the picture before I posted, I thought it was cute, and I'm sorry, I thought you seriously were having a hard time moving lately. I wasn't trying to be negative, I'm just struggling right now...I'm usually pretty positive in my posts, etc. - I feel silly.

It is all good.
I wasn't upset over the venting. That is all fine and good. Do what you need to do. I just don't look at the negative. I have a different outlook on life I guess.

I agree everyone needs a friend to vent to. I know I have all of you, but I have a special best friend of 55 years. She has MS and we vent to each other a lot. I know not a day has passed since Oct. 2005 that I have not hurt in my back and right leg. Now I have this lung thing going on and you wonder sometimes is it all worth it. Being down emotionally is just as bad as physically. As long as you talk to some one and get help if needed you will pull out of depression. Our pain is here and we may as well face it and accept it and go on with our lives. I think dragging this oxygen hose all over the house is terrible, but I'm getting use to it.

If you can't sleep at night talk to your doctor and get a sleeping pill. Not sleeping will zap you .

Exercise is good even if you only do 5 or 10 minutes at a time. Just try to do your hour a day. I am not one to talk on this subject because I fail to exercise everyday.

I would like to know more about the ozone and oxygen injections. It couldn't hurt any more than the shots the doctor put in my back that didn't help at all.

I looked at your link at the start and I laughed out loud. Good job. emoticon

Willow honey whatever the reason for your original post, it has worked out wonderfully well.

We all need to vent and get the pain out whether it is physical or emotional, the pain is the same. Bottled up it just festers and gets worse.

Being able to say how we really feel when we are down is a wonderful tonic.

I am thinking a good Team might be one where we just all say how bad we feel - REALLY.

If there is one way I know that works to help people feel better about how bad they feel it is to actually share it with someone else without the fear of being judged, or told to pull themselves together, or to think about all the other suffering people in the world.

If I feel bad, I want to feel free to say I feel bad and not to have to feel guilty because someone else is hurting more than I am.

We each have a right to say how we feel and be heard and appreciated.

By sharing the bad times, others are able to identify and it often makes both people feel better.

I know when I was at my lowest both physically and emotionally I did not want to hear people say how good they were feeling. I really empathised with others who were going through as much pain and suffering as I was.

So people - find a friend, or anyone who will not put you down and vent and cry and scream if necessary. This may sound a negative approach to problems, but I have found myself it is the very gateway to feeling positive again.

If you are anything like me, you will feel so much better afterwards, especially if it is someone who understands what you are talking about.

Loving thoughts to all Wispy.

Since willow's pix was to give us a laugh, I think I might share this story with you...

Sometime earlier last year when I was, in addition to slow in the head due to all the meds, I was moving even slower due to all the pains and spasms... etc.

One day, I was trying to get off the bus... (since I was unable to afford the luxury of taxi cab)

I was trying really hard to move one step at a time... Yet, I was moving, perhaps, too much slower than the ordinary folks...

At some point, as I was still trying to move to the door, an influx of people were rushing in getting on to the bus and some actually showed their sense of annoyance towards me because I was blocking their way...

Then, this nice lady noticed me and, after realising I was still trying to get to the door. She yelled out anxiously and loudly to the entire crowd...

"Handicapped trying to get off! Handicapped trying to get off!! She is handicapped!!" 8-O lol

Of course, all that I could said to her was a big thank you for her niceness.... 8-O lol

lol... thanks for sharing with all my portrait...

More exactly, this is my portrait when in psychiatric ward last year... a nut-case with a walker.... 8-O lol

At the same time, metaphorically, it also describes my current state of being... a realisation I just came up with earlier today....

Despite the ups and downs associated with the change of dosage in Seroquel, one thing remains... sort of like how the song "one head light" goes... with my head... I turn the engine but the engine doesn't turn...

Yes, I try to motivate myself to read and to write them academic papers....

Yet, the engine of my head just wouldn't turn... in addition to the motivation is no where to be found...

Could anyone ever understand how it feels and appreciate how hard we try.... and, would it be possible for anyone to think that I am pure lazy... at times I wonder...

I'm having a really hard time moving lately. I still do my walks in the morning, but feel like I can hardly move for the rest of the day, except it hurts too much to hold still. I went to the doctor again today. The pain makes me not want to move, and the not moving makes me depressed, and the depression makes the pain worse. It's nice to have other people who understand, and yet - I wish no one had to.

Struggling is how I feel right now. My back is throbbing and my leg is on fire. I missed my doctor's appointment last week as I forgot to check the messages on my phone and can't get in until next week. Anyone out there heard of the ozone and oxygen injections for herniated disc that Italy and Canada have approved. I know papers were presented at an AMA convention in San Francisco last month, but not whether or not any research is going on in the USA. Please send me any info you may come across on this treatment. Thanks.

"ANYONE FEELING DOWN OR STRUGGLING TO MOVE?"

You hit right on it, though my struggling to move is more depression than hurting. With the hurting I've found that it's easier to do a few sitting leg lifts at the computer or when I go for a nap to do a few mini sit-ups. I don't know what a trainer would say stretching the exercises through out the day, a few at a time. I know it doesn't get the heart beating faster.
When I first read your topic I was sitting here crying, too many problems. I've had 3 years of struggling to move from depression. Thank you, you snapped me out of the crying and I did a few leg lifts and stretching my arms around. Just getting some movement going seems to help with the emotions. I bet I read that in an article here at SparkPeope. Maybe it's starting to sink in.

I too hope that you both feel better soon. I suffer all the time with mobility issues. One minute I can be okay, especially at this time of year funnily enough as the heat seems to free my bones somewhat, but then my back remind me that it is still there and then my legs and sometimes my whole body just locks up.

I do empathise with you and know from experience that it si painful and somewhat debilitating. I have no choice when it happens to me but to try and rest until it all passes. When the thrust of the problem is gone I then have to get someone to help me get moving again as it is extremely difficult. Also, if I have been sitting for too long I also have a problem and have to summon help in order to get me mobile. Like yourselves, pain is so much a part of my life that I have almost learnt to ignore and live with it, which is not good but what else can you do?

All you have to remember that in the dark times you are members of an excellent team with plenty of support. I have found this to be really positive from a personal perspective and is something I will not forget...ever.

Ok, anyone feeling down or struggling to move?
