I woke up with the usual aches and pains this morning but I am feeling loads better today. Constant aches and pains can wear me down and I often suffer with what I term as Fybro blues. This is a kind of depression caused from sheer frustration and a feeling of “when will this ever stop”.I have noticed that this condition usually happens when I am exhausted and my concentration is impaired. There is no point trying to ignore it, it is there. The way I combat it is not to think about it and do what my body is asking me to do; rest and sleep. The Fybro blues can last for a couple of hours or a couple of days, it all depends on how my body reacts to the aches and pains of the day. Stress can also be a contributor, and can also cause further pain too.
Getting the balance right is difficult and after six years dealing with this illness, I am still trying to find the balance. Sometimes I succeed, other times I don’t, it really is a huge learning experience. excercise works for some people, unfortunately it doesn’t work for me, but I keep trying and I do little bits when I can.
Today is a better day so far, so it’s slowly forward and do what I can to accomplish my goals before the day ends. Wish me luck, I would like to get at least two of my goals completed for today. 🙂
