My knees hurt and I’m so tired. I need a nap but I cannot even think about sleeping right now, I have too much to do. I am so overwhelmed, I do not know what to start with, which area to focus on or task to conquer first. Life is like that, what do I do first? Which is more important? How am I ever going to get all of this done?
What if, instead of thinking what are we going to do we look at what we have done. Then realize your potential, you can accomplish these tasks. You have done other pressuring tasks that you finished. You probably felt these same overwhelming feelings. How did you do it? How did you accomplish it? Time management, prioritize, and exclude things that do not need to be done right away.
My knees hurt so bad and I cannot possibly do this on time. Pain is a terrible thing to endure, it is debilitating and depressing. There are many ways to deal with pain and accomplish your tasks. First, pain, especially joint pain, can be eased with simple antiinflamatories. Getting to a doctor immediately to find out why your knees are painful should be at the top of your list. Of course if the pain is that bad maybe you need to go to the hospital.
Some tasks can be performed sitting down. Stretching and rotating your knees to help reduce the inflammation and can pay off immensely. Strengthening the weakened areas is a great way to reduce pain. Once you learn different ways to deal with the pain, things will get better. Until then, continue to tackle things one at a time and remember all of the things you have accomplish in the past that overwhelmed you at the time.
Chronic pain is a terrible thing to live with. It affects every area of your life and can take a very long time to accept. Patience and persistence is the best way to conquer this challenge.
