I'm hurting in the leg and just so sick of being this way :( I'm struggle to get out of bed but I do to get my son off to school and to drag my lazy teenagers out of bed who refuse to do anything I cry all day I can deal with the pain

Welcome farawayy, So sorry for your pain this morning. I relate so well to your feelings, frustrations to the symptoms of your illness. It is exhausting waking up in pain and makes it difficult to look forward to the tasks of daily living. I too have a teenager who seems to be allergic to helping. I try to focus on something that energizes me... I put on uplifting music and let it fill the air. What energizes you and take your focus off your pain? This is a wonderful community for support. Blessings today!

farawayy, I still wish I could take away your pain for you! Aren't teenagers the worst for assisting people. Have you tried soaking in a hot bath or using a hot pad on the sore spots? Do you have a TENS unit? If we know what you've tried, maybe we can give you ideas on other things to try to help ease the pain. I've even found that sometimes just venting can help ease a bad day, so vent away if that helps. There are some wonderful people here who are willing to help any way we can. Sorry I didn't get back to you again yesterday, it was a busy day for me.

The first Sunday of every month is our family dinner, this month my Great Niece turned one and her birthday party was on the first Sunday, so we had our dinner yesterday.

Let us know how we can help you!
