Moving

Who else finds moving a really difficult thing to do that deals with fibromyalgia and osteoarthritis? Any suggestions? I am in my last few days of packing and moving? I am so tired and in so much pain!! 😞

Pain medication, hot epsom salt baths 🛀, topical numbing creams on large joints.

Label boxes with necessary items so you can find them quickly. Label every box by room so you do not have to move things more than once. Ask for help! Take is slow and listen to your body. Welcome to the group!

I d suggest asking for help. It's gonna be vwry hard on your body already with just the stressed of relocation. Liftinf bending is gonna be over the limit. The last time I moved I didn't ask for help until thr last minute and ended up having to leave half of my belongings. It's awful. I hope you get help and be kind to yourdyourself .
