I've not long turned 40 and promised myself that Fibro would no longer conitue to take over my life,now I've been re=housed and the stess levels have gone down I promised myself I'd give up smoking which I did the same week I had my birthday that's almost 11wks and was strong enough to use just willpower,I haven't touched anything in with Aspartame for 13wks and I joined slimming world 7wks ago and the weight is slowly coming off.I have up my excersize levels up from nothing to a little excersize everyday and yes it's hardwork but the benefits are starting to show.
I've lost 2and half pounds,my muscles are getting stronger,although I 'm not cured my time between boom and bust incidents is longer and slowly things are getting better everyday.
I could go on about the pro's and cons of each bit but I'm doing what is working for me right now,as after 4yrs and possibly longer( just undiagnosed )I am trying anything.
Today is the first time I've seen my doctor since late last year and she had seen me at my worst,she was so proud it made me feel really good,she said I could of gone 1 of 2ways and I chose to fight,don't get me wrong I have been the other way to ,thinking it was hopeless but I guess as the saying goes life begins at 40.
I'm not boasting or wanting a pat on the back I am merely passing on the few changes that I've found working for me.I've been swimming twice in last 4yrs and that for me and my little girl is great as she is seeing mum get better an hopefully the disabled mum doing nothing won't be the only memory she has of childhood.
I wish everyone well and to keep fighting with support you can get there.I was very shy when I first got ill and it took me a while to speak out and I thank Fibro uk for helping as it made me see I wasn't alone,
best wishes to all an big gentle hugs,one step at a time
