Is change better or worse?

Gmasboy - October 11

Has making changes in your life worsen or lessen the pain?
I have had this pain for as long as I can remember and being active with my daughters, with their school and events, kept the mind off of the pain so that I could function. I also taught for 6 yrs pre-school (young)and being on the floor with them, being active with them, though the pain was a bit more noticiable, it wasn't bad.
Now that I haven't worked (do to layoff) for almost 5 yrs and though I am active with my grandson's school and him at home, it seems that the pain has worsen...

My husband believes it's because I am not as active as I was though I try to ....and that my age may have a factor too...

What do you all think? Have you made changes that caused the FM to worsen or lessen?

Just looking for some insight....thank you so much

I think that activity may strengthen muscle but otherwise it just keeps your mind off of your pain to a certain extent. That is why bedtime is the worst for a lot of people because it is a time that the brain catches up with the body. I don't think not being active helps either because it gives your mind to much time to think and doesn't help strengthen the body. Right now my shoulder area is in beastly pain but no one would know unless I tell them because it doesn't seem to help to share anyway.

I can honestly say that joining Curves 4 years ago was the best thing I did for myself. Altho I still have pain, my body is stronger and I can cope better. I think the most important thing is to keep moving no matter what. I can say for myself, sitting for any length of time makes me stiffen up. And that hurts! Take care .... Brandy
