      I have fatty liver disease and Tylenol is hard on your liver Lorita.

      I’ve just turned 75 and have dealt with the chronic pain of fibromyalgia and interstitial cystitis for my entire adult life. At this stage, I find that giving up the desire to be rid of the pain is very freeing. I keep a gratitude journal, every day recording at least 5 things for which I am thankful. I meditate several times a day which enables me to avoid becoming engulfed in the pain. While it is always there in varying degrees, I can train my mind to focus beyond it. Finally, I do something for someone else every day-write a note to a friend in need, call someone who is isolated, volunteer for our local friendly visitor program. Each night I read something uplifting before bed.-Betty

      I find Tylenol the most effective! When I feel pain I take 1 gr ( usually two pills of 500) 3 times a day for 2-3 days and it really helps! I don’t understand why Creakybones can’t take Yylen.

      CBD. There’s many different ways you can use it.

      I have a hard time. Can’t take Tylenol or Advil. I do though sometimes.

      I turned 60 and it’s bad enough dealing with pain. I don’t know how I will survive 70.
