Lostnomad, I'm glad that you are able to exercise, some exercise is better than none!
I really understand about
not always knowing our limits. It is easy to overdo on days
where we are feeling better. I tend to work in spurts now and find it easier to pace myself.Most of the time, I'll clean for 15 minutes, sit down drink some water and rest for
15 minutes. When I go walking, I have a set route in my neighborhood. It is 1.6 miles.
When I get half way, I will make the decision to continue or head back home. I still will
overdo sometimes but I am becoming more aware of my activity and that helps.
I hear you about
the countless doctor visits and lab work. Last year my calendar was
full of appointments to specialists and visits for lab work. So far this year it hasn't been
as hectic. Take one day at a time. It does get easier as you go. There will be a med for
you that will help. Sending gentle hugs!
