I am still pacing well as I continue to plough through the longest muscle relapse I’ve never had in my chronic illness. It is quite hard but it is a relief to get off the hamster wheel that I seem to have been on for the last few years. Surprisingly, I have had quite a lot of visitors one way or the other. This has been a huge help.
I went for a massage at a luxurious hotel yesterday and that was amazing. When we are bereaved or divorced it is quite important, I think, to receive caring and supportive touch. I think it is something I’m going to do again.
I am also using a meditation and mindfulness CDs of Jon Kabat-Zinn, developed for the University of Massachusetts. They are wonderful. Each session lasts around 40 minutes and his voice is incredibly soothing and unpretentious.
