There is a very good chance that you are sitting while you're reading this post. Take a second and think how much time of a day do you spend sitting ? Out of the 24 hours that you have, majority of them are spent sitting. If you are at work it's a minimum of 8 to 10 hours bracket (feel free to add to that whatever number you want if you are working for a Startup like I do ;)) You are sitting when you are commuting to work and God forbid if you live in a place like Delhi, Bombay, or Bangalore that's a good one to two hours. You sit while you eat, you sit to poop 😉 (and yes I used eat n poop in the same sentence ...not the best idea 💩). You sit and watch TV unless you are one of those who keeps reclining every 15 minutes of watching television. A long story short, you spend a major chunk of your day sitting.

Now imagine for a second what if you couldn't sit at all and at all means at all in absolute sense. Not even for a minute ! Every time you sit it hurts as if a hundred needles are piercing your body. Can't wrap your head around it. Can you even imagine a life without sitting ...

If you were not sitting while reading this post you were definitely standing. Take a second and think how much time of a day do you spend standing? Preparing a meal in the kitchen, brushing your teeth, taking a shower, at the bar, waiting in line to pick up an order, at a wedding, at a party..... and the list goes on and on and on.

Now imagine for a second what if you could only stand for 15 to 20 minutes. Think there is a timer attached and a bomb will tick off if u exceeded that time. That bomb is the excruciating pain in the entire lower body. A pain that leaves you soooooo debilitated that you need to rest your body for atleast an hour before you can even think of standing again.

Scratching your head, wondering how is it even possible to carry out a normal day without having the luxury to be able to stand more than 15 minutes at a time.

Ok fine if you were not standing and not sitting either, then obviously, this time I've got to be right, you were lying down. You know the drill now. Imagine for a second what if you could not lie down straight on your back or even for that matter sideways ? The only option you had was to lie down on your stomach prone. You obviously would not be able to watch TV, read a book.....forget any other complicated activity, just imagine sleeping in one exact position for hours on end.

Now add another layer of complexity. Add 1 and 2 to 3. If you cannot sit and stand only for about 15 minutes and not lie down on you back or sideways. The only god dam thing you can do is to lie down on your stomach and that too with constant excruciating pain in your neck making lifting your head a very tedious task. Basically lying down on your stomach with little room to turn your head left or right.

Now this is something even if you try you can't imagine.
Don't put too much pressure on those grey cells. All you need to do is to pay me a visit to see how fibromyalgia pain symptoms make the impossible possible.
