Something To Sharpen The Ol’ Brain. FREE courses

Brain fog,  medicated blur, or just pain dumb. Thats how I feel most of the time since this darn CRPS came a knocking.

I do believe that this time can be used wisely and one of the things I want to be doing is studying to give me a career when this hopefully settles a bit. I want to be studying Nutritional Medicine and the thing that’s held me back is my fear of failing because I couldn’t get my head around anything. I posed the question asking my CRPS friends on Facebook how they coped and one thing we all agreed on was that a test run on a short course would be the best Idea. Then the topic of FREE online courses came up and I was given some good leads on websites that provide FREE ONLINE COURSES.  I’ve already signed up for Food, Nutrition & Your Health (FoodHlth) through open2study.com  and will be having a study day tomorrow.

Also recommended are the following

coursera.org

edx.org

I’d love to hear about any courses you enroll in.

Happy studying and happy pain free days. xx

 

Insomnia: Doin it all night long!

One of the worst parts of having CRPS is the insomnia. When I’m in a pain flare is when it’s worst. Last week I didn’t sleep for 3 night’s straight and by the end of the 3rd day I was a mess. Apparently where the cranky nerves run up into the brain, it causes certain areas to get just as angry. One of these is the sleep area of the brain. It’s like my brain knows I’m sooooo tired, but it won’t flick that switch.

I won’t write too much tonight. Oops, its 4.45am so not night after all. But my fingers are just too cranky and not liking me typing. So Ill add a few funny things I found on pinterest to amuse you. They made me smile, but then I understand. I guess in an hour I’ll get up and walk the dog to the café for breakfast….If my feet allow me. Lots of coffee!!!
