I may have missed your post myself. Have not been able to be on the computer for awhile. I can sit up, or stand up, for an hour and half, or so, and become so much in pain that I cannot do anything but lay down flat. today I am using my time to respond to all of you here. for selfish reasons maybe. I am helped by people here. so my time of an hour or two hours are going to be used here, and then I will lay down;)
I truly did not mean to ignore your post here. Just was not able to be on the computer.
I can't imagine laying in the sun......ever. I avoid the sun, as much as possible, especially in the summer time. I have my own theory on that. It seems that the summer sun is worse than the winter sun. It is closer to us in the summer, and maybe this is why it makes it harder on me and some others to be in the sun.
I used to cut my grass by a push mower in the summer. I always had my house clean, and then cut the grass the next day. i knew when I was cutting the grass that it would make me sick, for two or three days. It would feel like I had the flu. Walking in a flea market for a couple of hours on Sunday, would make me the same way. It tends to determine how much of the sun I am exposed to, that reveals how sick I will be.
I am apologize for being unable to respond to your post.
thanks for your input. Some of the pain must have been caused by stress. yesterday was stressful. a lot of family politics to deal with. and we all know that stress can cause a flare. but the pain is much less intense than it was yesterday. still doing my five minutes of work, to my 15 minutes of rest.
