so, I finally have a higher shower chair installed with handles on the sides of the chair, and today I got to use it.

honestly, it didn't make much of adiffrence to me. the handles helped a bit with standing up and sitting down, but my balance is still off- and everytime I move I nearly fall off the chair, and the pain while moving my body feels like I'm awake during a surgery.

it's just me, I guess. I am (or to be more exact my body), is getting older.

I'll continue to use the chair for the support of the handles, but it's not lifechanging

I didn't really expect it to be, honestly, but still I expected a slightly more positive result

I started back listening to a variety of podcasts last year.

Certain podcasts I binge listen Fibromyalgia Check-In Thread #6 ... to a take breaks because the topics are heavy, triggering, emotional and a reminder of global chaos.

Most podcasts conduct interviews. I follow several individuals, BIPOC businesses, add movies/series to my watch list, and add books on my wishlist etc all featured in podcast interviews…

46 days into my vegetarian journey. My autoimmune illnessES have been very well behaved!!!

In hindsight, I wish I knew about certain things 20 years ago..

•Functional medicine vs Conventional.

•The importance of gut health.

•Parasitic cleanse.

•Ayurveda approach vs Conventional One-Size-Fits-All approach.

•Hydrotherapist- a massage therapist that specializes in lymphatic drainage, to gain more insight.

•How emotional trauma can cause a dysfunctional relationship with food.

•Why prescription drugs don’t always solve the root cause of your problem.

what nutrigenomics is, and how lifestyle factors affect genetic expression.

Importance of sleep hygiene and reducing stress.

•What integrative psychiatry is.

•How “genes load the gun, and lifestyle pulls the trigger”

•What genetic testing shows us and how we can use it for our health.

•What amino acid therapy is.

•The ways sleep influences our health.

•The importance of stress management.

•The problems associated with prescription drugs.

the pain while I showered today was ridiculously high

I am physically exhausted, and it's only gone 10:00 in the morning (and that's with my new chair that's supposed to help me)

ugg... ugg and even more ugg
