Thoughts on Coping

I was talking with a friend today. She is having a nudgy little problem that is driving her crazy. She doesn't like nudgy little problems that drive her crazy. She asked me how I do it and cope with everything.

My reply after that, with some deep thought, is:
  • Exercise
  • Whining
  • Prescriptions
  • Bitching
  • Ice packs
  • Complaining
  • Chocolate (preferably dark with cashews or pecans)
  • Over eating
  • Heating pads
  • Under eating
  • Substance abuse (just kidding)
I admit I haven't had the best week but I'm still here. Monday I was exhausted and in pain. Tuesday I was in pain. Wednesday I was okay but sore after PT. Thursday, its still morning but I feel okay, so far. 

Pain is no fun and its been way too popular this week. One of my many doctor appointments on Monday changed around some of my pain meds. But its still too early to see if that is helping me. So I will refer to my list of options above on how I will cope. But in the meantime, I might need an ice pack and/or a pain pill.

I enjoyed reading this blog because it added other coping skills to my list and many of them were realistic coping skills. I also enjoyed how truthful you were about not having the best week and how sometimes you might just need an ice pack and not use one of your coping skills. I also enjoyed how you added humor to your coping skills. Thanks for sharing this.
