Traveling with Chronic Pain
He made the trip seem shorter. It seemed like a miracle that I didn't have a headache! I did ache everywhere else, though. My shoulder Lidocaine patches helped a good bit. I always use them on car trips. I use everything possible on car trips to help with pain!
The main thing we do before and during car trips is pray. We pray together before we pull out of the driveway. We ask other's to pray for us, too. I pray along the way. And, we're all thankful when we make it to our destination safely.
What do you do to travel with less pain when you have Chronic Illness?
I take all my pain medication. I stop and move around every two hours. I stay hydrated. I consciously try to relax my muscles as much as possible.
