Chronic pain flare up sucks. How sitting on your ass makes you more independent

Starting or even completing house chores can be cumbersome when chronic fatigue or pain strikes. Standing and moving around for too long can easily take its toll on you. By using a chair or a stool as an aide, it will help you to not overexert yourself. I now have a seat in the shower and one in the laundry room. I have been able to do more, by sitting down.
