What activity do you guys do to escape or distract from your pain?

When my pain isn't too bad, I play soft, relaxing music on my acoustic guitar. Feels like a mini vacation from my pain.

How do you feel when a non chronic pain person compares their pain to yours?

For example someone you know says to you that they've had a back ache for the last two days and say they understand what you've been going thru with your back pain that you've suffered for the last 10 years. What's your feelings about that? And how do you respond?

How do you manage your medications when memory problems are a part of your disease?

I am curious as to how everyone with memory problems that comes with having diseases that contribute to memory loss. I do have my meds in a week pill holder. The problem is I don't know if I've taken them once or twice. I find at times the day of the week is missing, or I skip over a day. It's getting a bit scary for me.
Do y'all keep a record or something that helps you stay on track?
