This touches a lot of chords for me. I wake up in a lot of pain and stiffness, making it hard to get out of bed. Mornings when I can, I take a shower, go downstairs, make coffee and get the pain killer, and come back to bed until it kicks in. I really feel much better when I follow that plan. Three days a week, I have to be out the door by 7 am, and boy those days are hard. But, I have discovered that the hot shower, the pain killer, and the coffee, if promptly applied, make getting going easier.
