I saw a lovely lady today called a Health Trainer, I was referred to her by my GP. On a Friday each week (or at least when I'm able to leave the house or fit enough) I go to a community centre and do some chair based activities. I do chair activities now as often as I can that my OT gave me. (I'm absolutely scared of getting DVT) so I do these activities what I can only. The professional who is in charge makes sure that I do what I can and don't push myself too hard. Then after the activities have been done, its all done within an hour but again I only do what I can, no one is there to push me too hard or anything, then after the hour a healthy (free) lunch is provided and then after that there is a craft based activity (good for the hands and fingers). It'll be good to do something like this without any pressure as I can go when I feel fit enough and do only the activities I feel that I could do and no pushing and no pressure. It will be good to get out of the house and potentially meet new people, some could even be like me. I can't say how happy I am at the moment. I feel like there is a chance to get some (definitely some) normality back into my life. As I say I could do this for a year or longer, there is absolutely no presure or anything. No one to say "You should be further along by now" or "You've done this activity for ages, try a different one, push yourself harder" ect... I just wanted to tell you all what happened today. I'll let you all know how my first session goes. Gentle fibro hugs to you all. xxxx
