I write. I am a writer so some days I open a file and vent. No one else reads it and I can look back and see if there is a pattern. I have started learning aboriginal medicine and a lot of the ceremonies induce calm.
The warm water works for me as well sometimes. I look forward to them. Cant stay in the shower all day though, I try to keep my mind occupied. Watch a lot if tv. Which is interesting
I do pool therapy it hard in the beginning but it worth it.you feel better after🙏👍
A good chiropractor would probably turn you away with your history but some very gentle physio therapy may help. In relation to relieving the fog. Try to rest up when your body is telling you to, learn pace yourself. Try not to worry too much sometimes that makes the fog worse. Aches are more difficult ..... but .... make sure you have good posture, Rest, don’t use a walking stick unless you have been assessed as needing one. Warm baths/showers. Make a list and if you achieve something on the list you’ll feel you’ve accomplished something and hopefully this will help you feel a little better. Review your medication find out what the side effects are, are there ones which will suit you better?
Have you tried mindfulness or Cognitive behaviour therapy. These may help you think about your problems in a different way helping you to manage them more positively. I’ve found since coming off opioids I feel much better. I allow my condition to walk with me...... not to overtake me.
