I also find the same distractions to help me deal with the pain. I also keep telling myself that “I cannot let this pain get the best of me, I have to keep moving forward”. It wasn’t so long ago I couldn’t do anything but lie in bed crying with the pain or sleeping because of the pain medication I was on, but with the help of my wonderful primary care physician I am able to enjoy the things I love to do like taking pictures, making home movies with my camcorder then sharing them with my family and friends. It’s nice to know I’m not the only one that feels this way. I also like to create my own t-shirts, anything to keep my mind off the pain.
