Diary Mushroom Socks GraphicSamm (Ohio) was frustrated about her attacks, unsure of how and when the next one would be triggered.  So she started a journal documenting her attacks and began to identify patterns, like leaving the warmth of her bed or a warm shower for a cold bathroom, or not wearing gloves for certain activities.  Solutions included a space heater and a large purse for multiple hand warmers, gloves, socks, etc. to take on the road each day.  While she still has attacks, the documentation helped her figure out what she could do to improve her situation.

She asked us to share her solution saying “Life can be just a little bit easier for us, sometimes we just need to know how to get there.  A jounal may be the answer.”  Her journal includes:  Date/time of attack, extremities affected, how long it lasted and any special notes on the event.  Thanks so much Samm for sharing your solution!
