      Different apps and mental exercises to learn to deal with things better. Also to learn to not care when people disagree with me and stand up for myself.

      I am journaling to help me see my progress each day. I sometimes feel like I never get anything done so this helps me see that I am accomplishing something. I’m using an app called Zinnia on my iPad because it’s easy to use and lets me add photos and use my Apple Pencil.

        @BraeburnGirl journaling is a great idea! I'm do glad it's working for you. It's really difficult to see progress when looking at yourself so journaling is a wonderful way to capture every milestone!

      There are a few things. Exercise for sure. I plan on joining a gym next month. I miss running so I want to get back into it and also strength training. I also want to shed 30 lbs while I'm at it. I plan on paying off my credit cards. That'll free up some of my money so I can save more or spend it on hobbies etc. I plan on getting at least one house plant. And fixing up the place I'm staying in. But most importantly, I plan on forcing my abusive roommate to leave.

      It’s taboo in the chronic illness community but yoga. It helps my fibromyalgia pain, particularly in my back. Not so much my severe neuropathy. It also helps my mental health to keep me up and moving 2x a week, as I feel accomplished!

      I'm improving my mental health by practicing Duolingo and keeping up a streak- it helps create a routine, stimulate my brain, and maintains my Spanish speaking skill! I'm also planning to learn to do yoga, and I'm preparing for that by stretching every morning, as well as before every workout to ensure I do not injure myself.

      Actually reaching out for help for the first time in my life. I let my mom come to my apartment to help me clean/organize. Up until this year I had said I would rather die than let her see my home in such disarray. It’s still uncomfortable for me but I’m learning to accept that I deserve help like anyone else.

      Finally relearning math fundamentals so I can move forward at uni. Math Academy (online), is exceptional. Continuing to learn how to dye yarn. I knit my niece and nephew each a blanket, first with MadTosh yarn, then they discontinued the weight of yarn I was using, which is really hard one to find, so I decided to learn to dye my own. Comparative price? ~$210 to ~$65 If I didn’t brag about dyeing the yarn for the second I don’t think anyone would have noticed…

      I've started taking a very small dose of edibles at night to lessen my pain. I'm able to go on a walk up and down my street with my crutches every day and have the pain at a manageable level. It's great exercise for me which stabilizes my joints and keeps them from getting stiff.
