The Importance of Family & Support
When I get a conversation going with someone, it helps get my mind off of my fibromyalgia. I have a girlfriend that is great with this - the two of us will go out and have a girls' day, and we just try to have some lunch. It's so nice to have good conversation for the afternoon, and just listening to her talk about her family and grandchildren gets my mind off of everything. I think that sitting and just thinking about your pain is going to make it much worse. You've got to keep your mind occupied.
