So so fed up with this pain and feeling like I do. I have had the worst week in ages I have been so fed up to the point that I just don't know what to do anymore last night I had the worst pain ever in my finger that I really wanted to just chopp if right of. I have pain right now over my whole body and I feel so stiff. Anyone got any reccomendations apart from jumping of a high bridge ?
This sounds ridiculous, but you know how a little toddler has a "lovey"? Well, I got one of those really soft blankets for Christmas, and when the pain is just intolerable and all I can do is cry, I sit and stroke that blanket like it was a kitten or something. For whatever reason, I get through it, and have started sleeping with the blanket, even though summer is coming. Maybe I'll cut it up and make a kitty out of it so I don't look like an overgrown Linus character.
What has been your best bet in the past to get through the crucible of pain? I wish I could just lay on a cloud sometimes. I hope you find some way to relieve the worst edges soon! Would a cool soak help? Or a warm one? (Don't hit it with a hammer, I don't recommend inducing more pain to get over what is already the worst pain ever...)
Thank you right now my husband is sitting with me in his arms and is reassuring me that I will feel better soon my dog won't leave my side just now so she must feel my emotions. Thanks GrandmaD your hugs are very much appreciated right now x
Husbands, wives and our pets are the bestest! I hope , I really do hope you are feeling better today. I am sitting out side in a lawn chair, with a glass of ice tea, a big floppy hat on, enjoying the warmth of the sun on my skin..last night was a rather hard night for me as well...but we made it through the pain. Much love to you and yours, Terri
I love the fact that I have a friend in Scotland. Wow, what an amazing place!(despite the weather) so tell me what is something you can do right now to "love" yourself? Maybe some hot chocolate and a good book or movie, o a nice long hot bubble bath?
Ha ha right now all I want to do is sleep I gave up my bath a few years ago for a walk in shower but I really am thinking about replacing it X I'm off to bed soon so I'm off doing my favourite thing X thanks
Terri, you bring the SON out when there is no SUN. I can vision you sitting with your floppy hat on your head, in your lawn chair, with that bag of chocolate kisses large enough to share... Share....share! Fibro, I know how you feel... Some days all I want to do is rock and cry! I have been sitting in front of a space heater. It just seems I can not get warm enough. I know I am... But it just feels good to my skin. GrandmaD I like that idea of a soft blanky. My doggie stays close too. And there is nothing like a piece of warm pie with a dab of ice cream! Fibro hope you are feeling relief. Hugs!
Are they melty? Are the chocolate kisses melty? I just love them like that. I have read countless times that sugar and chocolate are not particularly the best substances for those with fibro. Well, guess what? When I'm down... Really, really down... I will eat an entire box of milk chocolate covered cherries. AND. IT. HELPS. ME. GET. THROUGH. Some may say I'm not the brightest crayon in the box -- but I say what ever (legal) coping mechanism you find that gets you through your flare-up or crisis is BRILLIANT. So visit the Community here for understanding and cyber hugs that never aggravate tender points, snuggle your loveys, fur babies, and/or significant others, and eat chocolate, or kale, or fiery chicken wings to get through. GrannyD will cheer you on all the way to a better day.
