Hi everyone! I'm a 33 yr old mother of. 3,6 and 9 year old. I fell on my right shoulder July 2017...I'm in the thawing stage. I overused my left arm and am having some similar issues in this arm too.
I wanted to share some thoughts in case it helps.
Everyday is so different with my FS.
I slept well last night....I recently implemented some things to help myself....took trazadone for sleep, piled pillows up high and a pillow under my arm and a body pillow in between my husband and I in case he bumps me in the right. In this position I was able to tolerate sleeping on my back all night....which had been a struggle previously.
I've noticed with FS I require more sleep....maybe you do too....it takes a lot out of your body and mind to fight this.
Today I feel low...I want to cry....it's hard to be strong everyday. I have to go to work...I'm nervous about getting through and do I have my pain meds, I've packs and cream packed? I always have my tools!
To help with my hopeless/sadness thoughts I apply logic to my brain!
FS will NOT last forever! There will be an END. Even though it is a long journey...I will not always feel this way.
So now it's off to work I go, armed with my tools and logic to beat this day.
How do you manage your days?
