8 comments on “Staying Positive Through a Setback

  1. Sorry you are feeling this way…..your blog has helped me in more ways then I can ever thank you. This is all so new to me even though it has been just over a year since I was told I have GP. Cheer up and know that we must take everyday as another step. 🙂

    • Thank you so much Susan!

      It is always good to know that it is helping others.

      I have some ideas to expand the blog with some additional information. I hope to add them over the next few weeks.


  2. This week I finally got some funds in. I was in a more positive mood although I still have major depression, but I thougtht if you can do it so can I. I decided to run some errands yesterday and was and was only gone a few hours, but I was pooped by the time I got home, but I felt I at least accomplished something. So today, even though I woke up miserable, I decided to push myself. I was able to get a much needed car part and decided to stop at the store on my way home. As soon as I parked, I had to run into the store to go the bathroom. I was so fatigued and in so much pain, that I just left the store and decided to go back home and save it for another day. Even though I want to push myself to get things accomplished and stay in a good mood, I also realized that sometimes i just need to listen to my body and rest. We all have setbacks, but on the bright side, tomorrow is another day that may be better. Your voice does help, and for the little time that I have been listening, you have helped me more than you know. I wish I could give you a big hug. Cheer up buttercup, there is always tomorrow.

  3. You are not alone. Sometimes it just sucks and there is nothing to do but crawl under the covers and snuggle with your dog. They always seem to know when you need some TLC. Today was a good day for me. It was acupuncture day. But last week I was in so much pain and looked five months pregnant. One foot in front of the other.

  4. I have never done acupuncture, what does it do to make symptoms improve? I know about needles poked into the body, but what improvements do you get out of it?

  5. Having the acupuncture for me has help big time with bloating, crampping and tiredness. The acupuncture stimulates the flow of your body. I can’t explain anymore then that, as I still read articles on it. I still get a B12 shot monthly to help with the energy level.
