coping mechanisms that work! (for fragrances, lights, noise triggers)

Post  jannawags on Sun Sep 28, 2014 9:38 pm

I suppose no doctor in their right mind would actually recommend these tips but they work for ME!I'm hoping at least one fellow sufferer  finds relief this way:
lst:  I wear plugs in my nose for the 3-5 hours that I am in my classroom as I can't count on controlling the fragrances. I breathe through nose til out of room.  Flesh-colored Machk's earplugs cut in 1/2.  I jam them up each nostril  I look like Fiona from the Shrek movie but I'm pain free, so don't care.  I remove them afterwards w/ fingers/sometimes needlenose pliers.

2nd:  I wear sunglasses while watching TV & use my sleeping mask over eyes as hubby fast-forwards the ads.  These coping mechanisms are fabulous!

3rd:  Sometimes sounds(whirring fans, etc.) set me off so I always have my super ear plugs with me.  They are red, very flexible, come in a small case of 12, made by Mach's and available at places like Rite Aid.

These coping mechanisms are fabulous!
Feel better!!!! Very Happy

Odors normally don't bother me thankfully but I also keep ear plugs in my purse and always close my eyes or at least look away as the TV is fast forwarded. It truly does help. Very Happy

It's been a godsend. I have been cycling through really bad stiffness and spasticity for a month or so, then weeks of really bad headaches. The strain stopped that cycle. And vaporizing (I don't smoke) only three times a week is enough to keep the migraines away although I have to use it daily when the spasticity is bad.
