how I'm coping with pain (or how to distract yourself)

Since I'm still trying to manage worse than usual pain, it's all about distraction and entertainment, as well as devising creative ways to manage the day-to-day activities of my life.

Here are the things helping me cope:

The book "A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius" by Dave Eggers.




The movie "The Nanny Diaries."




A free service called Memo to Me has been saving me from my migraine-abused, diminished memory.




It allows me to set reminders for appointments, events and to dos and receive as many notices (by e-mail or text message on my cell phone) before the event arrives as I need. I usually set my reminders to e-mail me a full day before the event and again 1 hour before. It is helping me so much!
