Once again you are so very right Jeannie. I have not lived in a house with stairs for over five years now, sold two story house, moved in rental house that had no stairs and then moved here. Stairs are a real challenge for me now where I use to do them everyday a couple times a day at least. Now when I go up stairs I have to pull myself up with the rail and I can tell the difference in my tush muscles too since I don't do stairs very often.
When I started working on my family gallery in the living room going up the little two step stool I use made me sore but the more I did it the less sore I got. My hands have gotten very weak cause I don't use them like I use to but that has more to do with the arthritis than fibro.
I keep plugging along and it may take me a week to do what I use to do in a day but I'm not going to give up the decorating projects I want to do cause of fibro. Okay, I do have a problem on high step ladders cause I lose my balance very easy and get light headed and the last thing I need is to fall and break a bone so I am cautious in what I do.
luv and hugs
