One easy thing to do is move around the house more. I don't sit in any one place more than 15minutes today. I get up and walk around, go online, watch a little TV, play with the cats, pick up stuff, move stuff around, etc.

Also while lying in bed I do the isometric exercises for my legs and feet that I learned in PT years ago. This moves the lymph around and the blood and keeps the legs and feet from suffering.
Do butt crunches in bed and kegel's too. This has been really helpful for me since I retired. I also try to lie down once during the day for at least 1/2 hour, to help with circulation. I don't always nap, sometimes I just read something. (we only have one TV and that is in the downstairs living room).

I do a lot of movIng around house. The pain isn't quite so bad when I am at home. I like to get out once in a while. For car trips it is difficult for me to sit. I finally went to a movie after staying away for years. I just went when I did not think it would be crowded and stood up in the back for most of the movie.

I just can't stand the "big screen" anymore. TOO LOUD...I end up covering my ears most of the time! sigh.

I haven't been to a movie in years!

There is a tutorial here:
http://neurotalk.psychcentral.com/thread7728.html

It is not difficult once you get the knack...
Keeping your photos within the size range is the biggest issue.
But that tutorial covers most of the problems.

You can change pixel sizes of photos on your computer.
In Accessories in microsoft windows, there is Paint...which will do that for you. Avatars 85pixel limit, siggie has a limit which shows when you do it, and also the "manage attachments" shows you file size limits. Our software will reduce some to the proper size, but really big things need to be reduced at your end.
