Use a Timer to Feel in Control

(Post #3)

Did you know that having pain (that feels out of control) instantly sets off a chemical brain bomb, which tells me, “Your whole stinking life is completely out of control!

The last week has been emotionally stressful. Therefore, I am in a huge pain flare and exhausted.

To manage my (wrong) internal feeling that things are out of control, I am setting timers for every single little task I do. When the timer dings, I go on to something else. I am gaining endorphins by visiting so many tasks, even when they are not all complete. I feel like I have my finger back on the pulse of my life, and that alleviates a lot of internal stress and allows my pain flare to settle.

Ecclesiastes 3:1 “There is an appointed time for everything. And there is a time for every event under heaven.”
