There is a delicate balance between staying fit and overdoing. You will learn your tolerance for exertion and that will help you avoid the big swings in energy. It is good to be active when you can . . . but overdoing can be a big no-no if you are trying to recover from a flare.
I hope some rest will have you back to the swimming pool soon!! Your really will learn a new normal and all will seem better again. Its just a lot to take in until you figure out a few things.
