I got home from recording in LA to a stormy sea of harsh news, long to-do lists, mind blowing physical discomfort and a looming surgery and recovery to top it all off. When I say that sometimes I’d prefer to be curled up fetal under the bed on ALL the pills, I’m not kidding.

It’s a constant battle to manage extreme sensation in the body and face it squarely without using pain pills to treat mental discomfort as well as physical pain. Some days I feel like a champion. Some days I feel like used toilet paper. Either extreme is not so great for chronic pain so I use lots of things to try to maintain balance.

If you’re feeling this way, please know you’re not alone and I’m right beside you all the way!
