I wasn't going to ask about this until after Christmas, but memory being what it is, I better do it now while I think of it.

Members and mods, what do you think about another regular post like the coffee klatch? It could be daily, or weekly (I could start a weekly one as I can't get on here every day.)

We all know that exercise and moving helps us, but it is hard to get motivated. Or even doing a few chores around the house. Inactivity/ depression is a vicious circle that is really hard to break. The less we do, the less we feel like doing, the more pain we have, the less we have the will to do..... etc... you know what I mean. My idea for a regular post would be for a place for us to come get encouragement to get our butts in gear, or to post little things we have accomplished. It might help with motivation if others are involved in our daily battles, or being able to brag about a job well done.

What do you all think? idea

Fibro Boost? It sounds like a new Boost drink just for fibromites.

Oh Sassy if only there was a drink for fibro boost. smilewinkgrin
I like the idea Mamanan, we will see what the other mods say.
about 2 mos. ago after being off glutens for two months, I hope my small intestine started healing, and I got more energy and motivation and I have done more in the past two months than I had for 2 1/2 yrs. But I'm still waiting for this good time to end and be back where I was in case it's not the gluten but just a reprieve from the flu like feeling of fibro. I sure have had a lot more pain with the extra activity but it still feels good to feel kinda normal. Got my fingers crossed that not all my problems was fibro but celiac too.
I'm doing Christmas by priority, just in case I go into a flare. First was shopping for the grandkids so they would have something in Santa's bag, finished that. Second is getting the tree up, you can't have Christmas without a tree, DH brought all the Christmas decorations down out of the attic yesterday so I have a start on that. Third will be making some treats and fourth will be cleaning house. Somewhere in there I will get some cards out. If this good time will last through the 20th I will be happy cause we are having Christmas with the kids and grandkids that weekend, only two weeks to go.
luv and hugs
