Can Journaling Help Us Manage Chronic Illness?

Are you journaling your chronic illness?

Anything that gets us to confront ourselves, to meet ourselves with self-compassion, & to stop the worry spiral can be a powerful thing.

Scam Alert!

Beware there is a new malicious scam doing the rounds. A friend received a call from 912250041117 asking him to press 1 if he had been vaccinated. He pressed 1. Immediately the phone was blocked 🚫 and his phone has been hacked. So be careful when you get similar calls. Be alert. Also, inform all senior citizens and friends. 91 is a call from India

This poem says it all, thank-you so much to John Roedel. We love the ending in particular.

My brain and heart divorced
a decade ago
over who was
to blame about
how big of a mess
I have become
eventually,
they couldn't be
in the same room
with each other
now my head and heart
share custody of me
I stay with my brain
during the week
and my heart
gets me on weekends
they never speak to one another
- instead, they give me
the same note to pass
to each other every week
and their notes they
send to one another always
says the same thing:
"This is all your fault"
on Sundays
my heart complains
about how my
head has let me down
in the past
and on Wednesday
my head lists all
of the times my
heart has screwed
things up for me
in the future
they blame each
other for the
state of my life
there's been a lot
of yelling - and crying
so,
lately, I've been
spending a lot of
time with my gut
who serves as my
unofficial therapist
most nights, I sneak out of the
window in my ribcage
and slide down my spine
and collapse on my
gut's plush leather chair
that's always open for me
~ and I just sit sit sit sit
until the sun comes up
last evening,
my gut asked me
if I was having a hard
time being caught
between my heart
and my head
I nodded
I said I didn't know
if I could live with
either of them anymore
"my heart is always sad about
something that happened yesterday
while my head is always worried
about something that may happen tomorrow,"
I lamented
my gut squeezed my hand
"I just can't live with
my mistakes of the past
or my anxiety about the future,"
I sighed
my gut smiled and said:
"in that case,
you should
go stay with your
lungs for a while,"
I was confused
- the look on my face gave it away
"if you are exhausted about
your heart's obsession with
the fixed past and your mind's focus
on the uncertain future
your lungs are the perfect place for you
there is no yesterday in your lungs
there is no tomorrow there either
there is only now
there is only inhale
there is only exhale
there is only this moment
there is only breath
and in that breath
you can rest while your
heart and head work
their relationship out."
this morning,
while my brain
was busy reading
tea leaves
and while my
heart was staring
at old photographs
I packed a little
bag and walked
to the door of
my lungs
before I could even knock
she opened the door
with a smile and as
a gust of air embraced me
she said
"what took you so long?"

I would just like to wish every one a very Happy & healthy New year 2021 keep safe happy 🎉🎊
I suffer with severe breathlessness having a condition known as Phrenic Nerve Palsy. The phrenic nerve supplies the signals to the diaphragm. Somewhere the nerve forks into two to supply signals to both left and right side diaphragm muscles. Unfortunately for me the left side has been damaged, possibly by a virus. The decrease in my ability to exchange oxygen in my lungs means that exertion of any kind has a cost. Simple every day needs cause fatigue and pressure on other organs. During these difficult times with the pandemic the need to wear a mask is torture, however with the risk of being infected I cannot afford not to wear a mask.
Hi Barbara, I just read your very interesting 3 part story, is there going to be a 4th?

Hi Barbara, I just want to confirm tonight's meeting, the invite says 7 but your reminder says 8? I'm guessing 7 is correct?
have you seen this; I thought it might be helpful https://www.today.com/health/coronavirus-breathing-technique-may-help-covid-19-patients-breathe-better-t177870?fbclid=IwAR0KpH4- 5xGvU4bCJ5irpfHv1lmuo9KzqFZH-1V_SR-0-f2dMZYxXAAngyE
A little humor for Tea Time! This is my new skill learned during quarantine!
Now is the perfect time to practice meditation!
Just finished this one
Question please. If one person in a home catches the Corona Virus, should the entire home be quarentened together? Also, if one family member has COPD, how do you handle this? This is actually a question from my daughter. Thanks for your input.
Glad to hear you had a good time at Rehab yesterday. Great bunch of people there.
