Sunday- snow, skates and sixteen degrees! Today we went ice skating with the group from PRC. Payton was a trooper. The program teaches you that talking/complaining about your pain is a no no. Verbalizing it gives the brain more power to increase the pain so if you keep it to yourself, it helps in retraining your brain and the signals it sends to your nerves.
She hasn't said anything about her feet or back hurting, but she is moving slower than normal. She has been doing a lot in physical therapy so getting out of the bed has been somewhat of a challenge, but she is getting her fight back and she wants to be "normal" again!
I am doing a lot of breathing! I am teaching everyone how to do the deep breathing exercises! You feel so relax and rejuvenated after!!
