Anyone else get totally bored and even more fed up when they are 'resting?' I have always been a busy bee and still fail miserably at this pacing lark, despite having been diagnosed with fibro for over a year now. I tend to give in when my body really can't move any more, but then when I'm sat down, after 5 minutes I'm bored! There's nothing good to watch on tv and I'm ok if my hands are working, as I can pop on the laptop or even do some cross stitch or embroidery. But when they give up...and I'm just sat there with nothing to distract from the's, well, as absoulte pain! Any ideas anyone??

Have had fybromyalgia since I was 25 but managed it well with exercise until the arthritis set in 4 years ago then the fybromyalgia reared it ugly little head and took over.

  • Try listening to comedies on the radio.

    I have also found that if I want to sleep heavy rock music helps. If I just lie there my brain goes 19 to the dozen but a few rounds with a bat out of hell and I can't think of anything else and I relax
