How do I live with fibromyalgia? With pain, and fatigue, and a sense of humor. Combine these with a loving family, an active creative life, an interest in the world around me and I do just fine. I love to paint, play with beads and polymer clay, read great books, go to the movies, and (even though I’m slightly ashamed) watch a select group of reality TV shows. When I am knee-deep in paint or clay or rooting for my favorite on “The Bachelor” (there, I’ve said it. I watch all those dumb shows.) I just might forget that I’m exhausted or hurting. With these tools in my pocket life looks just fine.
Please let me know what you use to cope with fibromyalgia or any other chronic pain issues in your life?
