Bad morning for me

Dec 26, 2015 6:38 AM

I have so much pain today. I have family coming over and I can't stand this pain. How am I going to do this

Meme, one step at a time, that's how. I understand how you feel. My body is screaming at me, I didn't sleep well and I'm feeling pretty crappy. You know what, when everyone gets there. It will be a nice distraction. Pace yourself, take breaks and relax with your feet up for 10 monies her and there to give yourself a chance to breathe. Try to meditate or have soft music on at that time so you can relax. Do deep breathing exercises while you're taking your breaks, it will lower your blood pressure and also help you to relax your body. Sending you positive vibes, gentle {{Hugs}} and prayers that your day goes smoothly. Enjoy the time with your family!! 💕🙏🏻🌻

Mememe78, take your time, don't push yourself and ask for help (sometimes easier said than done). One minute at a time . Hugs of strength

Mememe78, I hope you got through the gathering and have been able to rest up some. I totally understand, having three days of gatherings at different places. I hope it's a long time before I have to look at the traditional southern holiday food...ugh! I'm very tired and have a cough, shore throat & total laryngitis. I plan to rest up tomorrow. I hope you, and everyone can rest up now. (((Hugs))) 🙂🙏🌼
