I love my holidays as I get loads done and the pain is reduced, why is that, you spend the day sitting having coffee people watching then you have a lie down on the sun beds, after a quick float in the pool its time for a siesta before lying down on the sunbeds again. You don't need any excuse for having a rest and no housework to do and the sun helps with the pain. It's 3 weeks since I got back and the pain is back to normal roll on my next holiday.

We will all come next time xx


When I saw my Dr this week about my meds I asked her why when I'm away on holiday I feel great but as soon as I come back the pain and fatigue hit me like a truck, she said it's because we probably do less and get plenty of rest, and fresh air as you say, pity we can't be on a permanent holiday isn't it 😄


I tend to be an in-betweener in that if I do too much I get chronic pain, and yet, if I do too little I get chronic pain. So I have to find a happy medium. I want to genuinely wish you all the best of luck.

All my hopes and dreams for you



I am exactly the same Ken, it's a constant juggling act finding that happy medium, nice to know I'm not on my own with that. Take care. X

Well as some people on this site know I have been on holiday for 18 months and it had been great. I am lucky as my work is on the internet and as long as I have connection I can work. Unfortunately my husband has decided he wants a divorce so I have to go back to UK to sort things out and this is my last week here.

Being here is not a cure within 24 hours of going home pain levels return.

I know exactly what you mean! I've always thought it is the sun and the relaxation that does it but whatever it is it's just such a wonderful feeling!

Best wishes, keep well. X
