Finally today, after relatively short flare by my standards, I managed to walk 2km
For me this is a HUGE achievement!
I have mobility issues and I have been walking regularly (actually dragging would be more precise lol) even during flare, as I feel that the space and exercise is good for my mental and physical health. If I can I will, if I cant I don't. But this time I could, and although the walks have been shorter and less frequent, I have pushed on even when I didn't really want to!
And today I managed 2km for the first time in an age
So pleased I could cry! And so thankful to patient friend who walks with me (and her beautiful dogs) as I would not be able to do it on my own.
Before Lupus I would walk my dog for miles, walking is part of me that has gradually succumbed to this awful disease, but you know... it's coming back!
Went to the woods today, wrapped up like a kid cos it was freezing, snow made it so beautiful and in spite of the pain, I felt so alive... more like my old self than I have for a long time!
And I wanted to share.
Thanks for listening
