How do you cope with pain?

Noca - March 13

How do you cope with your pain, both physical and emotional? Any coping methods you use that seem to pull you through hard times?

Hi Noca. I use deep breathing but the best came from my daughter. She sees the horrible pain I'm in all the time and one day she draws a heart on my hand. She said when things got really bad I could focus just on the heart. It does work to get over the shooting pains that drive me insane.

I also have a dance mix set to play when the pain gets bad. TV sometimes works oh and just recently I started using a heating blanket. That works very well as it is like wrapping a heating pad around me.

well, outside of meds which is a personal must for me, i use a bed buddy that heats up in the microwave and lasts a good while(at walgreens). (cold is never good!)stretches for severe RLS. a warm bath. when my skin can tolerate it, my hubby is great at massages. sometimes i just cuss through it. sometimes i cry. i dont know that there is a really great method. what ever i choose is done with a hudge prayer. and when the pain is lessened, a hudge thank you.
