Hi DanHan sorry to read that you are having a bad day & hope you feel better soon. Ithink you will have to listen to your fibro body & do what you can,

Hi there,

It is rotten when we have a day of things to do and fibro just has other plans for us. I have found that the best thing to do is rest when we feel exhausted and in pain and pace ourselves when we are feeling a bit more able. Hope you are feeling better and are able to have a better evening than you did day.

I have had a day similar to yours. I have a big flare comming and its started my tremors. I hate as its so embarrasing wobbling like jelly. So all i have manged is the 3 walks up to school and back that i needed to do. My sis in law made me a wrap for my dinner too bless her.

I hope tomorrows a better day for you.

hugs, kel xxxx
