I think I'm looking for someone to tell me to go for it but I'm also looking for some reassurance that I'm not going to fall apart!! I'll tell you of my dilemma and hopefully someone out there will be experiencing the same and be able to share with me. For many of you it will seem trivial and unbelievable that I can even think of it but it's a MAJOR issue for me. My issue is exercise. Yes I know many aren't able to move because of this condition we share, but I NEED to find some way of helping myself emotionally. Prior to this 'thing' entering my life I led a very active life, with sport and exercise being at the heart of it. It was a social activity for me and my children too. Now, because of this 'thing' my life has become so isolated and housebound. I've put on 2 stone in weight, even though I'm not really interested in food, and of course my once fit and toned body, even after 3 children, has become a chubby wobbly form. Needless to say I hate it. My confidence has gone too, even though my children,family and friends are reassuring that I do look good considering all I've been through. But folks, here's the point, IT REALLY MATTERS TO ME! So much comes from exercise on it's impact on my wellbeing. As a lifelong sufferer of depression, the boost fof endorphins are priceless for my mental health. Basically it's been a lifesaver for me, quite literally. All this might sound vain to many of you, but it's a state of mind for me. I still love sport and watch anything that moves basically. All I want is to enjoy some form of exercise that is productive for me. and I know it will have a knock on affect on the rest of my life. I want to be active and have a good knowledge of what sort of movement would be helpful,( you can't be bed bound and not be wellread!). But I have no contact with anyone who shares my dilemma. Iam hoping someone on this wonderful forum will be able to understand where I'm coming from and be able to share their experiences with me. Thank you for taking time out to read this blog and I hope I don't sound vain, as it runs so much deeper than that. S x
