If pain is making it hard to do daily tasks, let people know that you could use some help. Ask family members or friends to help out with physical tasks you can't do right now. Or look for help in your community. Here are some ideas.
You could do the "mental" chores, like paying bills. Ask others to do the "physical" chores, like cleaning the floors.
If you have a skill you can trade, use it to "pay" a friend to do some cleaning or yard work for you.
Friends or family often want to help but don't know what to do. So let others know what you need.
