I have chronic pain in my chest and ribs. When my pain gets worse I get incredibly sensitive. I don't really know what to do! I would like to get out of the house for at least a few minutes everyday but the pain is killing me. I can't even have a light fabric over my chest and that won't cut it during winter. I hate feeling so stuck in my house ☹️
I have this, some days I can wear jeans or basically what I want but others I can only wear something so soft and really baggy like my dads T-shirt with nickers or baggy shorts. Even leggings can hurt xx
I get skin sensitivity to the point that I dont want anything to touch me. I have actually slowly replaced most of my wardrobe with soft and comfortable fabrics, soft sport bras, and primarily wear house shoes to wear if I leave the house. I have given up on caring what I look like to anybody else in the world too because my comfort level is more important to me than how I look.
I get it. Even a subtle breeze causes the most excruciating pain.
I'll be honest, sometimes it comes down to growing thick skin. I wear compression sleeves and ace bandages all the time. Does it help? A little. But I can say that there are days I wish I was home but I push on. Learn your limitations and live in day type compartments. Moment by moment if you need to. You got this.
I have periods where my skin is sensitive to touch. Not as sensitive to having clothes on... that must be awful... I'm so sorry. I think about going out to the mall or something but there are so many times I just stay at home... alone...not having real productive days. I think I think about the effort and I just don't want to do it.
@MySistersKeeper Yeah it's the same for me. It takes so much energy to go out sometimes and thats when it gets lonely. I live alone so I typically like going out to meet people but sometimes I really don't have the energy
