Not sure if this is the right place to post this, but...what are your hobbies?
It isn't easy to do some things because of the pain, but I have found that it really helps to be able to have some kind of "busy work" to work on while I watch TV. I like to do latch hook and plastic canvas (like cross-stich, but easier). I know, I'm a little young for "granny activities," but when I graduated from college I found myself at a total loss for something to do after work. I've never been too physical, I think my body knew something was wrong long before it actually presented itself, but I've found these activites to be really fun for me - just watching TV is way too boring! I also like that I have something to show for it when I'm done, and inexpensive gifts to give to people. Sometimes, though, sitting is the worst thing for me, and I am not able to sit for long periods of time, so I take a lot of breaks. I have been working on a HUGE rug for a little over two months now and am almost done. I'm really bad about wanting to start another project before one is done, so this time I haven't let myself abandon this one. I also bought some jewelry making things, but haven't sat down and actually figured it out yet - it's way more complicated than I had expected (pliers, metal wire, etc), but maybe when I finish the rug I will start on that.
So, what do you guys do- besides play on the internet and read posts here, lol (I do that, too, that's why there are so many crumbs in my laptop - from eating over my computer).
