Thank you that's great advice :)

Hope the rest helps you, I realised this week how important it is to rest! I stayed in bed all day yesterday it was a dark time for me... but I feel the benefits of the rest feeling better mentally and physically today still taking it easy. You gotta look after yourself x


I think we all feel "Yes, I can manage to do that!" but then we suffer for it later. Do take care, and I hope you feel better soon. MariLiz


In my opinion we deny we have limits and can push ourselves every day for years but I also believe that it wasn't of long term harm and many of my 'life experiences' I wouldn't have missed for any amount of pain/fatigue, including having my children. Now I'm at the stage where I've accepted my limitations, if I had known that I would bring children into my world of pain I would not have had them but neither I nor they would have it any other way :-)

I try to be good to myself, I hope all fibromites get the chance to do the same (Y)
