So this flare up has been going on for 4 months and the meds still haven't helped I don't know what to do any more my foot hurts and only one of my friends understand cause she has chronic pain too.My boyfriend has been super sweet and has been looking out for me.I have 1 1/2 days of school left but I don't feel like I'm home. I have always lived in west linn or but we moved to Wilsonville cause of the house that my parents liked.my foot was getting better but,then it started hurting again and I want to give up but I have come all this way to what fail? My goal this year was to push through the pain no matter how hard or frustrating.by the end of the day I its worth it cause I go to sleep knowing that most kids at my school don't have to go what I go through and this makes me stronger because I do push and try but I'm not the other kids so I do have stopping points. The pain is getting harder to deal with every day but I think I do a pretty good job at the end of the day.i hope 8th grade is a better year for me.Dose anyone have any suggestions for keep pushing through the pain?

I wish I had some suggestions, but I don't have crossed or rsd so I can't. I can say that when my fibro and/or sjogrens flares in my joints and muscles, then it's time to rest, not push through. Maybe with school ending you could completely rest your foot a week or two, using crutches to get around so you stay off the foot. Maybe this would bring some relief, calm the flare up down. Hugs & prayers you get some relief soon! 🙂💕🙏🌼
