I discovered this muscle pulled feeling in my first week of fibro. It stopped my life, really. I figured out through keeping a pain/ life daily activity journal what I could do, and, could not do. Mostly I could not do anything back then. Fast forward to now. I bag my groceries because I know I can't lift more than a whooping seven pounds. I put dishes in the upper and lower cupboards in five minute increments. If I am cleaning, LOL, I pick that one most necessary item and take breaks.
I know that I can't vacuum without suffering the consequences in my neck shoulders and arms oh and back. Basically, I am hyper aware of my bodies limits; they are many.
Have you purchased those rubber circles for seniors to use in
opening jars? They are terrific! Going shopping, UGH! And this is something I use for " me" time and random socializing with kind strangers so you would think I look forward to it. I do, mentally, not physically. Prior to shopping, I make a list the day before. I bring list. I go to most important store first and as I wear out, items and stores get dropped off for another time. The payback is not enjoyable!
