A random question, but my husband would love to go skiing this year, we're looking at seeing a friend in Canada and having this as our main holiday. (I can't think of much worse! I don't like the cold and can just imagine being in pain and getting hurt skiing!) But it's important we can do other things and do things he wants to do.
I used to be so good with pain, I was fearless and even had a Dr speak down to me saying I'd be crying my eyes out if I had dislocated my wrist... he had to eat humble pie once I was examined!
But now I am so so sensitive to pain and I don't want to be and try not to be but I am frightened of being hurt. I don't like large crowds, I burst out crying yesterday because my rather tipsy husband started tilting my chair and being silly but I was so so upset I was so frightened that he might drop me and I'd be in even more pain. Poor thing he meant no harm was just playing!
So, has anyone out there in chronic pain, particularly fibro with high pain senstivity, gone skiing in the cold cold snow?! I said I could prop up the bar or spend the day in a spa but I know that won't be the same for him. So any advice on ignoring the pain-fear cycle and going skiing would be appreciated! Is it something I just shouldn't do or do I do it sensibly and try and not to focus on the fear?
