    Whenever I have a flare up the pain prevents me from focusing, so I have difficulty completing school work, and I usually can’t go to work in person when they occur. Instead of trying to force myself to focus, lately I like to turn on a YouTube video while playing a game like Minecraft to distract myself- not necessarily from the pain, but from the things it’s preventing me from doing. What are some things that you do?

    I tend to try to sleep it off or do something that is mentally distracting but doesnt involve lots of body movement, like hanging out with a friend or playing the sims on my computer. My flares make food prep, pet care, and other chores really hard
