Have you had one of those days?
How about 5 years of them?
Whew. I know, “Why I am so tired.” But, knowing the answer to “Why am I so tired” does not change being so tired.
I was going to write a much better, or at least just as good of a, blog post on something else I was thinking about.
Then I realized, I am so tired I really didn’t want to write that deep of a post. I think I would still do the topic justice. But, a deep post like that would be a lot of work.
So, what do you do when you are truly bone aching tired? What helps you?
Pain meds, a hot shower, a hot bath, a massage, or sleep?
Or, are you like I am – you hurt so much you can’t get a decent night’s sleep?
Pain meds make me sick (side effects), so I always weigh how much gain do I truly need to kill enough pain to make the gain worth the side effects.
Heat works wonders, but I got hot earlier today, so I don’t want heat right now.
Massage does not work well for me, it excites the pain centers more than it relieves the pain centers.
So, what do I do for pain? Mostly, I endure. Sometimes I read, sometimes I write, and I always spend more time in prayer.
I do not recommend you do it my way, because my way may not be the best. But, it is what works best for me.
I hope and pray you have better methods for you. And I might get lucky, and someone knows of methods that might work for me.
