Feeling bad, but hanging in there
Tuesday, April 29, 2008
Ah, the springtime. Birds singing, sun shining, and....joints hurting and mind fogging up? It seems that every springtime right when the weather starts to get nice and I would expect to feel really good, my fibromyalgia symptoms get worse. They have really improved over the past few years (in general), but I still have times when I don't feel good.
The past few days I have been fatigued, my brain has been filled with "fibro fog," and I have had some pain as well. I am trying not to let this discourage me too much since I was really making progress with my fitness program. I don't feel so bad that I am unable exercise at all, but I will probably have to tone it down a bit for a little while.
I am trying not to let this get to me too much, and to continue to do what I can. Unfortunately I am susceptible to having a flare-up of symptoms if I overdo it with my exercise, so I will try to be gentle with myself.
