Hi y'all. I thought I'd pose a question to you. I'm taking my family to Disneyland, Magic Mountain and Universal Studios in April and I'm a bit nervous. I haven't taken any major trips or vacations since my fibromyalgia got really bad. I want to make the most of this and I don't want my problems to put a damper on the trip. My daughter is eleven years old, and the last vacation we went on was before I got sick...when she was eight. I want so much for this to be special for her. She's waited a long time for this. My question. How do you handle vacations? What things do you do to make the activities less painful so that you can enjoy yourselves? I'll admit, I'm a big kid inside a sore and achy body and I want to have fun despite it!!!! I love rides and rollar coasters as much as my daughter and I refuse to let this @#$% disease ruin this for me. Do you have any "tricks" that help get you through longer days at places that offer little chance for rest? I thought about asking my doctor for a temporary increase in my pain medications. Do you think that would be a reasonable request???? I'm also planning to carry around some biofreeze to use when the aches get real bad. Does anybody have any other ideas? Our hotel has a hot tub and swimming pool...these things may certainly help at the end of the day. But what I'm worried about is keeping up while in the parks! Any advice????
