    It has been a couple of years since my biggest flare. I have pain but nothing compared to a few years ago. I have already broke down and cried today in fear that the pain I am having now is the beginning of another flare like ai had a couple of years ago. Scared.

    Sheila ,very gentle Hugs for you. Is your pain getting worse? Do you take pain meds?

    I know everyone is different but when I start to feel more pain /tired I
    try my best to rest more and drink lots of water.

    Is it possible for you to get some extra rest?

    Keep us posted on how you are doing.

    Sending gentle hugs for you and hope that you feel better,

    My dr. won'r give me any pain meds. She said they are abused too often...I am thinking of changing dr.s. I do need something more than a muslce relaxer.

    SO far today i have had my feet up and under a blanket. I also have raynauds so the cold air from the air conditioner is freezing me the death.

    I will try and more relaxing and not focus on what might happen.

    Thanks for the support.

    great tip on how to relax when things are going not so good.

    I'm going to try the meditation. I find it hard to relax and just let my mind go so this
    will be good for me.
