What does a flare feel like? What causes a flare? I think I may be in one. The last two weekends have been stressful...fun, but stressful. My church had a Passion Play and I was in the tech crew. I ran the light board...over 120 cues, and I had to time them to the music. We had five shows. Then this week I haven't had any down time. Grocery shopping Monday; Mom toplay piano at the Senior Center, then Bunco on Tuesday; Doctor's appointments on Wednesday and Thursday (today). I hurt so bad I can't relax. Nothing seems to help. I'm so exhausted I had to drag a stool into the bathroom to put on my make-up. Couldn't take a shower...couldn't stand up that long. Someone please help!
