Hi Newfibrogirl. I'm sorry that you're dealing with so much pain that you can't get the sleep you need. I know if I'm not sleeping well, the pain gets worse. Please be patient with yourself. What have you done in the past to help yourself deminish enough of the pain so your able to get some rest?

Dlwc58 ..I'm stil working on that. My pain has changed and increased in the last few months. So I don't ha e any hard and fast rules to help me. Usually if I post here I'm at my wit's end. And I am. I have mindfulness and some low grade pain meds that don't seem to be working.

Today I am going to the pain clinic to see a psychologist to teach me some techniques to help manage my pain ... I guess. I will be glad to share what I learn today.

Newfibrogirl, I'm sorry that you are at your wits end. It's not a good place to be. I wish I could help you. The only thing you can do is try to rest, don't bend over backwards to do everything for everyone else and take care of you.
MySistersKeeper, I hope your trip to the pain clinic helps you. I used to see the psychologist they had there when my coping skills needed freshening and I just needed to speak to someone who was not related or a friend and could give me a fresh perspective on things. Now, I didn't always think what he said was right and I'd have to go home and mull it over but it was great that they were available to chat with. {{{Hugs}}} 💕🙏🏻🌻

Newfibrogirl, I hope you are resting, with better control or coping with your pain. Hugs & prayers!

Newfibrogirl, just when you start thinking, 'OK, I can DO this!', our bodies change the rules and amp up the pain. I wish I had some wisdom to share to make things better. I just don't. I hope you're able to get some rest...
