Pain is breaking me apart into little pieces. I was making progress: both in losing weight and getting stonger and faster. I am not giving up, but I really want to go get a huge _________
(fill in with any large chocolate item) and drown my sorrows. Or at least distract myself. It is funny about pain I feel demeaned by it. I know no one deserves pain but I feel some kind of guilt as if I have done something. I know I haven't, I am just being very honest about my feelings. I'm tired of this and I can only think of one good thing to say. I am getting healthier so I will be around longer to deal with this.

I have heard that walking and exercise help also, and I think certain types of exercise help. I think it is important to exercise within your personal limits and try to build up slowly. That is what I am working on doing. Thank you for the feedback.

i do notice less pain after i've walked for a week or 2. why i ever stop is beyond me, since it helps. most experts say exercise will lessen the pain.

That is fortunate for anyone who does not. It isn't a problem; only a challenge that can be met in a variety of ways. No need to be sorry.

I appreciate your input and the link. I will access that and read the article. I used to be a weight lifter, jogger, aerobics instructor, yoga instructor and very active in my life. Now, it is difficult to get out of bed on some days. I am determined to keep moving. Thank you.

As Holly suggested, your doctor would be the best source right now of what you can and can't do. But there are many, many benefits of exercise for people with arthritis. Here is a SparkPeople article with some great information:

At the bottom of the article, are more resources to help.

Thank you for the input. I will look for a pool in this area. I am new to the area that I am living, so I will need to do some research. I just learned a little about Feldenkrais method and I am going to study how that might help also.

I walk. However, if I had a pool nearby that's where I would be!! Its the only place I don't hurt. Can you ask your doctors advice? I also make SURE I warm up before I do anything and I cool down and stretch after.

I have difficulty getting motivated to move and do exercises because I experience daily pain and stiffness due to RA and fibromyalgia. Does anyone have suggestions for how to break through the pain and getting moving?
