The meadows are the calming bits of our lives when the fibro is manageable and life is as enjoyable as it can be then of course we come to the peaks that reduce us to blubbering wrecks and stop our trains of thought being lucid. How can we plan yes plan for these the spoon theory works brilliantly however it does not cover for peaks and troughs. Sometimes I have a MIND LIKE A BUTTERFLY I start to write somethi g I have been pondering on for ages and then I am thinking about gardening troughs. Sorry. What we need to try to do is not just save spoons but ensure our energy levels can be boosted to manage the troughs. I dont know how. I was talking to my daughter who has CFS and she too has this problem peaks and troughs. Mental reserves may be the answer so having calm moments through out the day when you can build these up. Calm moments when there are no interuptions perhaps meditate -does anyone do this? These moments should be just for energy rebuild nothing else no oh I'll do this while I have a moment no no just for your brain and body to gather energy. May be that will help through the peaks and make our days easier.
Yes we all could manage say five minutes 4 times a day certainly if anyone was a smoker you would have popped out and found time for a ciggy, So find time to consider where you are how you are coping and the way forward.
Any one any thoughts? Keep smiling I do have serious moments
