Kim, try a local support group, water theray, and being around only positive people. Stay away from negative people. Period. Friend, family or foe. You don't need that. Attitude is a lot of it. Watch TV to take your mind off of it, and use a heating pad for falling asleep. All the above work for me. Of course, I am on some medications: amitryptilebe for sleep, Celexa for the nerve paid, and I take Hydrocodone if needed. Other than that I try to stay busy. Your new job may help a lot. But if it's overly stressful it will be a negative. Good luck!
