I'm no spring chicken, I'm 58 and I refuse to let fibro turn me into an old lady.
Fibro has been an obstacle for me but I'm trying like crazy to work around it,
I don't want to feel jealous of all the active healthy people. I want to try and remain active too. Pushing myself daily to keep moving comes with benefits.
This week, I have been more active and have felt better than I have in a long
time. I don't know how long this feeling of wellness will last but I don't want to
set myself up for dissapointment if a major flare sets in either.
How do you find a balance? In the past, it has always been trial and error.
Keeping a positive mindset is something I work on all the time. I know inorder
to change something you have to be part of it. Starting with positive thoughts
usually gets me going. Meditation and relaxation have been a big part of helping
me adjust. I try to focus on what I'm able to do and stop thinking about what
I can't do, it is much more uplifting. Still taking one day at a time.
