It's pain that usually wakes me up if I'm not going through one of my periods of waking early. I don't lay there and think about it cause staying in bed isn't going to make it better. I get my caffeine and head for my corner of the couch in the family room, take my tylenol and get on the computer while I wait for both to kick in. I usually start feeling better after awhile. I eventually drag myself off the couch and try to get as much done as I can in the few hours of energy I have. The more I move the more I hurt so by the time I'm out of energy I'm in pain too, how much depends on the day, weather, what I have done and etc. By three in the afternoon I'm done for the day and hit the couch again. Since we have gotten Krissy I can't stay on the couch after three like I use to and I'm up and down quite a bit with her which is a good thing. I can never sleep during the day but I do rest for awhile.
Before fibro I spent about a half an hour in the morning reading the paper and getting my caffeine in me before starting my day which would last about 10 hrs before I sat down.
luv and hugs
