I'm sorry ur having a bad day. Have you tried relaxation techniques yet? I've learned that stress makes pain way worse. Sometimes just slow deep breaths can help. Im sure you have heard this b 4. I hope you have a better day.

Newfibrogirl, remember to do some deep breathing. Breathe in for a count of 6 and then hold it for a count of 4 and then slowly exhale for a count of 6. It helps get more oxygen into your system and also preoccupies your mind while you're counting because you really can't think of anything else. Just try to either listen to some quiet music or turn the tv on just for background noise. Take one moment at a time. Forget the last one, don't focus on the next one, stay with the one you're in. It's not easy and I'm not trying to take away from what you're going through but there is a way to get through this without falling into that pit of dispair. You got this, I KNOW for a fact that you're stronger than you think you are and I'd put money on it (not a lot because I'm poor.. LOL!!😜). But I know it just the same. {{{Hugs}}}😊💕
