I am truly trying my hardest in getting to grips with this frustrating fibro thing but what I can not achieve is finding the correct pace for myself.
I found myself needing to have some physical support when I pause on my rare days out as queues were a nightmare as I constantly felt like I would topple over!
So I asked my physical therapist to measure me up for a walking cane, now although I have a simply "stunning" stick I can not walk at the pace my body requires me to go at as my mind screams NOooo.
With the stick I find I tend to try to walk normally I.e. too quick & without the waddle fibro has blessed me with when I tire.
I also find that if I have a very rare reasonably good day this is followed by a day of fibro reality even something as simple as stroking my fur-babies is very uncomfortable for me to do.
I have been told I really need to learn how to pace myself in everything I do but it's so hard when you get a rare glimpse of what you use to be.
Any helpful hints on how to manage my pacing issues would be gratefully appreciated. Hel.x
