  1. Week 5 Report Went through a period of 'really not good' this week. Made it t o and through all my emergency appointments. The Dr called it on my tapering off of my one med. I made it down to a quarter of the dose I'd been on for years, before he told me its time to cold turkey. On the pain end of things, I think the withdrawal had a HUGE effect on it. I had started Percocet to take the edge off it. Not superb to do when dealing with withdrawal, but, it held me through to the appointments. The current plan: *Continue muscle treatment without Percocet *Go to morning skills group until my next one-on-one therapy appointment. Consult with therapist about taking a more skills based approach. *Cold turkey Med 1, increase dose of Med 2. *Track signs of depression.
  2. Week 3? 4? Rebel report Managed to get my work schedule hammered out. Thankfully, I have two days off in a row. I've developed a major neck strain over the past week, so two days is a good amount of time to work out the knots. Stress aggravated, guaranteed. Otherwise, I'm doing okay. Not 100 percent on cooking, moving away drom written tracking, but certainly more effective than before. Gotta keep it up.
  3. Alright. Back on track. The withdrawal and situations added up to a bit much, but I developed a plan with the emerge Dr. & Crisis nurse. While I'm disappointed that I did not manage my stress very well, I am proud of how I acknowledged and responded to being in distress. Round 2: FIGHT!
  4. [bad day, lots of Trans*phobia. Edited for excessive angst.]
  5. Nope, I didn't. But I've learned that Tylenol can a bit help with the pain. Getting my papers together, excited about getting this submitted, finally!
  6. ALSO. Tomorrow, I'm headed to the registry. If they take my 'we filed your fingerprints and destroyed them' letter from the RCMP, then I will have all my paperwork (and money for fees) for my name change! *Milestone woot!*
  7. It's going good. A little warmth from the shower, a little bit of stretching - even simply while standing - made a difference. The current bump in the challenge, is the stuff the Dr. warned me about. Painful, nauseating, light sensitive headaches. I'm going to push myself at least one more day before taking a remedial dose. It's no ealk in the park, but I can do this.
  8. Yeah? I usually lay/sit down after work with my heating pad. Stretching would work to strengthen the area instead, I imagine. Good call! Time to browse Yoga journal! :3
  9. Wow! Those 3 Cs are tough ones! Crush those cursed creatures! May they dread the times they've tread so close to your domain! Brave one, a great boon you'll find as you willfully abstain; No power over you shall these beasts hold again!
  10. Hey LegoLady! I'm not in your shoes, but can understand how not feeling 100 percent oneself/right in one's skin/at one's best can be. Your goals look solid! Is this your first time working with tracking? I learned that it can be tough for some. If that's the case, perhaps we could brainstorm some options? Getting out and meeting people can break up the blues, so the social meet up goal is rocking! Are there any hobbies/pass times you enjoy that are fun to do with others? I have trouble finding things to do with others that doesn't involve eating
  11. Aha indeed! Also, I think I should invest in physio therapy before jumping in to that 'walk more' idea. I stood up after posting, to have my sciatic nerve give me a zinger.
  12. Oooh hey! I wound up making a duplicate post. I've been using the other thread. The address... http://nerdfitnessrebellion.com/index.php?/topic/34564-hrunters-pre-t-stabilizing-challenge/
  13. Haha pretty confused as to how tapatalk works, but here goes! Today was a long shift at work! (Okay, I know 8.5 is a regular thing for some, but its long for me.) I think I'm doing pretty solid; 8.5 hours, 3000+ steps! If it wasn't mostly making the place look awesome, I think I'd rack up more. BUT! A great start. Maybe a goal for a future quest could be to do 3500+ in less than 8.5h, per day. I wonder how far that is from my house/how many times around the block? Cooked a good breakfast today. Missed out on the garlic though haha. Only 1 coffee, 1 cookie all day. All that's left is taking my meds and resting up for tomorrow!
  14. ._. Did not cook today. Doing better with hydration, but that's not part of my quest. I will catch up on my questing, by cooking twice tomorrow; I have a shorter shift tomorrow, so I am less likely to crash as I did today. I'm nervous about my work schedule - I'm supposed to be at 15-25 hours per week. I am scheduled for 33 hours next week. With this, alongside medication withdrawals, therapy getting cancelled and the growing urge to self-isolate, I'm not sure how I will manage. Days are grouped into 2's and 3's, so maybe I need to pick some solid coping tools and self care items for those days. And remember to take my break. I think I'm allowed a 15 or 30 after 5 hours of work, by law. I can probably work something out with my boss & coworkers to keep the day running smoothly.
