I started using CatchMyPain a week ago, but skipped several days. It just seems to me that if I stop to focus on my pain, it is harder to work through it and keep going. I'm not at all sure it is the best thing for me to be coloring on a little figure when I have some many more positive things to take up my time.
However, it's good to see where the pain goes... and how it ebbs and flows. I almost wish I could tie it in with My Health dashboard to see how activity levels coincide with relief (or not).
I have dealt with pain for over 30 years (I am 60, now - divorced in 2009 after a 31 year marriage) and was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia in November 2015. Prior to that (over the course of 15 years) I was told I was depressed, overweight and needed to exercise and diabetic. My doctor changed the Zoloft I'd been on for 15 years to Cymbalta and it has helped with the depression quite a bit and some with the pain. I didn't expect a flare up (now that I know what they are called) but just came back from 2 weeks of hell with one of those. I am going to ask about some medication for pain other than the Meloxicam, which doesn't upset my stomach as much as ibuprofen, but neither helps me with severe pain at all.
I just don't know whether I am going to put any pain colors on my little person figure unless it is bad enough to set me down to do it. Otherwise I'd be coloring all day long. LOL. I have to laugh, of course, or I WILL have to start coloring.
Thank you for listening to my rambling and for being here in a forum format. I'm glad I downloaded CatchMyPain, I just don't want to abuse it!
