Music

Mar 16, 2015 - 6 comments

I love music! I had forgotten how much I loved music. My back started screaming in pain (pretty sure it just wants pills) so I put on some music and got my arse moving and guess what? No pain didn't go away but became very manageable. It really doesn't hurt that bad. Not bad enough for narcotics. Just maybe my heating pad. Tomorrow will be Day 8-Bring it on! Starting counseling on Thursday and actually looking forward to it.

Good for you girl!  I remember discovering music again!  I cried grateful tears and realized I missed it SO MUCH.  A good endorphin builder....and lots of other things.  I even put up a journal about all the benefits of music (medical and otherwise if you wanna have a looksee.  It's titled "Music, Music, Music")  Music will get you thru a lot of difficult moments.  Hot pads, too.  I had one on my back and a full size one down the front of me with pillows all around me.  A little withdrawal cocoon of sorts...LOL  I sure hope you don't have any pills in your house......now's the time to flush 'em if you do girl.  No need for a safety net if you are truly done, right?  So glad to hear you are starting counseling.....rock on girl...you're doing GREAT....Day 8 is right...bring it on~

No pills whatsoever. Cut ties with any chance of getting my hands on any because I know myself. Strong now but could change at any moment. Would really like to find some sort of meditation but don't know where to start. Any suggestions?

Good for you Patty.....on cutting all your ties to pills!!!  Do you mean recovery meditations?  There are SO many recovery meditation books out there that I choose 3 each year and read them every morning.  When the New Year arrives, I change 'em out and read different ones (usually, but I have my favorites, too...LOL)  If you want to just read recovery meditations every day online, I posted a link in the addiction/social forum last summer that has a ton of different daily meditations....of course, you can read them every day as they change.  Let me know if I misunderstood you....cause some folks do yoga meditations and others that they found on youtube.  Here's the link to the social forum post:
