Bummed Out

I'm feeling pretty bummed out lately. I've been contending with what seems to be a pinched nerve in my neck since September. Recently I started getting headaches and dizziness.

What's got me so bummed out right now ..is just how weak my right hand and arm are getting. I remember when I could squeeze lip gloss out of a tube. Now I can't. Not with my right hand anyway. And I'm a right handed person. Some days I feel stronger than others. Some days my arm just feels like jello.

It drives me crazy in the morning when I try to get out of bed and if I don't get up slowly enough I become so dizzy I have to stop moving and hold onto whatever is close to me.

I'm on the pity potty a little bit. I have 3 weeks until my referral for my MRI comes. Then I can make my appointment for my MRI. I know people have it worse than I do. But, that doesn't mean that what I'm dealing with isn't a real bummer. How do you cope when you feel down? What helps you feel better? I really need some input. It just gets so hard sometimes.
