Login • Instagram what do you need from others during a flare up?

This is something I asked people on my Instagram page to help bridge the gap between people with chronic pain and their loved ones.
During a flare there’s so much rushing round that sometimes we forget what we need or that others around us are feeling unable to help,
From this question I was hoping to bring guidance and understanding for everyone in that situation and discuss their own flare up plan.

I need space. Space to rest and take the self care needed to get me out of the flare. The challenge for me is my son. He is seven, and he still gets so upset when mommy needs to rest, instead of playing with him.
