Significant (disturbing) event of my life?
During my divorce I lost the father of my son (5 years old at the time). Very difficult period with my ex mother-in-law who was very mean. Then I met an evil being who stole from me and which destroyed me psychologically.
Then painful event; my father’s death in 2018. I led a fight with him for 3 years. Conflict with my mother misunderstanding; I was her rival;
2 clans, my mother adored my brother. Since my father’s death bad conflict with my brother (because of the inheritance) my mother fell ill during my stroke (I hate write this word) and I could not take care of her (I was blamed by my brother and sister-in-law that I did not take care of her) Mom is died in November 2020;grief but not like dad. I stayed each time at their side when their bodies left us. I remarried 20 years ago. Everything is fine but you have to know that I have been in the fight from my birth 1955 to 2000; with my surroundings, my work, raising a single child.
Family history (family health problems) everything is sensation, because it is the sensitive that has been touched. The wrong info. Pain in the buttock and thigh in a sitting position because feet caught in a vice. The breast scapula, neck feeling stiffness along the arm burns and stiffness. Is it located only on the right arm?

Taciturn I detached myself I have no apparent symptoms, but excruciating body pain.
Neuropathy on the right side of my body. Improved with heat, rest and massage. The massage helps me, but I sleep badly the next day. I suffer and am very tired. Well to say the stoke (Apoplexy) touched the sensitive(nervous system). She feels abandoned by people who she thought were her friends. She has been living in a lot of isolation ever since. Physically and mentally exhausted. Finds that she was forced to let go
I need lots of rest and to do nothing. Clear my head and rest my body. You asked me a difficult question. You see that day I had a massage and suddenly I suffer and sometimes it makes me feel good. It’s complicated…
The pain is constant and increases according to my fatigue To reduce it? I massage myself with heating cream and add Essential oils of chili.
Otherwise the feeling of stiffness or compression? There’s nothing I can do about it
This person is in constant pain. She is afraid of having a relapse, another stroke. She believes that she will never be able to regain her health. There are occasions when it becomes so heavy that it cracks. And she cries profusely.
