A few months ago someone posted a link to an article about making healing into a mental game, reframing it. Anyone know where I can find it?

The article was great, the bit I got to read. I kept it open in a tab, but one day while we were waiting in the ER my SO decided to clean up my tabs, messages, and a bunch of other stuff. Now that I’m finally in a place to read it, I can’t find it. It wasn’t a video game, just about reframing your healing process into a game. Your remission might be the end quest, with quests on the way, getting sidelined might be a side quest, you might acquire allies... but I wanted to read more about how this gal set her game up. Apparently it really helped with her positivity and well, #Cancer #BileDuctCancer #

Today

Today, this week, was good. I started a new job.
A year ago I didn’t realize how stressful my other job had gotten and had what turned out to be extreme anxiety brought on by stress. It took one year to work through the work stress and additional pain caused by the work stress to be able to start over and deal with my fibromyalgia pain and symptoms. I am able to get up every morning on time and get ready and out the door and arrive at the office by 9am.
The work place is pleasant and coworkers are nice and easy to work with. Such a great relief after years of difficult work situations. The big perk is everyone acts like adults and respect each other. And the commute is by subway train with a bus connection. In the morning I have the option to take the bus or walk, I’m mostly walking because the bus has been delayed . This has been a huge blessing because it’s helping me get in excercise that’s manageable for me. And on the way home when it’s too dark to walk the bus connection is more frequent.
I am blessed to be able to work and walk each day. I am thankful I am able to get up each morning to enjoy a bit of normal. My goal is to be less fatigued each day and get my pain to a manageable level so I feel and look happier.

What's a song (or genre of music) y'all enjoy listening to when going through a tough time?

Music can be very therapeutic and I, for one, always listen to music whenever I'm feeling down. So what are some songs or artists y'all like to listen to when dealing with life's problems?
