I find that by having something to look forward to you have something -------------------

to focus on! This helps us divert our pain and our worries. So it could be going for a hair cut ( all ways works wonders for me :D) Half term and taking the children out to the swing or the Zoo.

Plan a holiday book a holiday then you have to very slowly get ready for it :D

Go to the beautician have a facial or your nails done.

Basically something just for you.

What do you do?

  • Hi Fibrofoggiest, bet your looking forward to your hols, we wet to Kos a while ago, in Sept, wonderful weather. The island is beautiful, very picturesque typically Greek plenty of nice walks, and empty beaches.. We hired a car and toured , visiting different beaches and tiny villages. Went to Kos town, where a typical greek wedding was taking placed, we were grabbed, dragged ito the church and joined in the festivities. It's the custum to fire off rifles with live ammo, very noisey and exciting.. The people are all very welcoming and friendly. Have a good holiday. Stay well, and enjoy yourselves

    You are so right I just had that conversation wiyh my neighbour who popped in 4 a cuppa. U need 2 have an aim each day, an it doesn't have 2 b a big thing either.

    I just started a meditation/yoga class which is so gentle an concentrates on breathing an movement. It is lovely....well worth doing, calming an good for the Fibro, only bit difficult is gettingb up and down off the floor, he!!

    I always plan lunches with the good people u know, who try to understand you, an not make u feel strange about being in Fibro land. You know what though I have learnt about people good an bag. Even if u have 2 reallg good friends, take comfort from them, an u give in return!!!

    Just went to Heliers hospital had X ray on my knee. I do not know what I have done to it, gotta b the excessive weight, he, he!! Anyway hrre goes.

    Wish u all a happy, reduced pain an peaceful wkend!!!! God bless. Xx
