Warning this is an angry post! I am so sick of people advising me on simple ways to manage this pain or easy ways to manage this pain. I'm sure everyone experiences and copes with pain differently but I am so sick of able bodied people telling me that I just need to learn to cope and that there are easy ways to manage the pain. This pain is not "easy" to live with, and I don't believe there is anything simple about managing pain, personally I have tried yoga, different diets, meditation massages stretches sleep routines etc, and though it has sometimes helped it hasn't stopped me from, being in pain nor does it replace how it used to feel to be able to just do something... since my fibro has gotten worse everything has to be planned day trips are planned with medications regular rest breaks and emergency places to sleep for when I get narcoleptic, there is no simple way to "manage" this, and I am so sick of people thinking they can apply their experiences to my situation, physio for a broken leg is not the same! How dare someone turn around and tell me I'm just not trying hard enough, if only they saw the effort just getting up and making it to the toilet takes maybe they would shut their judgemental mouths and let me moan if I want to moan, because I need to moan I am 21 in constant pain I have no life and all I hear is how there are easy ways to manage and simple ways to cope,. There aren't. Simple, there are ways to cope but there is nothing simple about living with chronic pain, people need to acknowledge that.
