How Has Continuous Moderate To Severe Pain Affected Your Quality Of Life?

It affects me more in the fall/ winter when the weather is awful. But, sometimes in the spring and summer too. It’s hard to plan things or do anything when u feel like crap. But, I try hard to not live inside even though I’ve got a chronic disease. I lean I’m on my faith and started listening to Christian music when I’m down. Have a blessed day!!

My life has become a small world existing of running local errands and doctor visits, online friends, phone calls to my family out of state, gardening, crafts, etc. Making plans are a thing of the past as my level of symptom misery is determined day by day. What would I give for a 2 week vacation from fibro so I could travel to see my family. Fibro is lonely and isolating to this one very social person who thrived on being with people.

I don’t do much anymore. I no longer have the manual dexterity to sew and embroider, gardening is limited to pots and planters since I can’t kneel much, and hiking is just impossible because I can’t walk for any length of time. I regularly have migraines now, which end any activity outside of a darkened quiet room. I retired right before the pandemic, and I know that timing has contributed to my isolation, but even without the socialization, I don’t really have my hobbies anymore. I’m an introvert, so I think this situation is easier on me than it might be for others, but I do find the pain to be very limiting.
