Before fibro I had a full time job working in a school in a speech and language unit I went out many nights a week.. I ran, drove and cycled ......nights out till the early hours weren't a problem... Elderly people were swiftly overtaken as I marched here there and everywhere. My life was planned with military precision
With fibro, I have had to give up work, driving and cycling as meds make me so dopey... Ok more dopey than I was before.. Running ... Haha the only runs i have are due to ibs.... Elderly people overtake me in their cars on bikes or simply walking their dogs I never know what's happening from one day to the next and have lists all over the house to remind me of appts etc... My low rate. Dla goes on a cleaner due to my arthritis I can't clean very well cant use vacuum at all...... BUT I get to spend more time with my family... Life is slower and less exciting but it's still fun and on a good day I can be spontaneous and just do something with no planning... It's a total life change and it's painful but I have had lovely times with my family I would have missed had I been well and able to work.
Has anyone else found their lives although difficult have had some positives with fibro?
