Re: What is helpful to you to lessen pain?
I'd never thought of what I do in terms of distraction - but distract myself I do - if you focus on pain you get more......so I do:-
Exercise whether in pain or not - for me number 1 followed closely by
Hot baths/hot tubs/showers/swimming
Not sitting for too long
Hot water bottles
Manage what I do over a period of time - so we're in the process of moving house so am packing 5 boxes a day instead of 30 in one go!
Socialising with positive people
Focus on things I like
Holiday in the sun as much as I can!
Love and Light
