Thank you for taking the time to read my post. This blog spot is so helpful to me everyday as it makes me realise I'm not alone and many others are going through symptoms and helping each other with the bizarre symptoms of Fibro!
I was diagnosed a year ago. I had tiredness and pain long before and then one day it hit me exercising! I collapsed in a heap and realised I couldn't move. My body just gave up. Or my muscles did! I was very fit and healthy. Loved cardiovascular exercise. I did high impact everyday. Until that moment. That's when my life changed. I slept and slept last year away. As soon as I wake the heavy ache in my body is back.
I have tried all types of exercise since. Yoga, swimming, walking....desperate to lose the stone and a half that just piled on. Anything I try just puts me in to a flare up. I've had to go on to a very low calorie diet which has cut out bread and sugar to control weight gain that way. I know weight gain isn't the be all and end all and im thankful I have my life. It's just that I feel so hopeless my body is constantly attacking me.
Does anyone else have this constant battle with exercise and if you've mastered the control with exercise, please please tell me. Or any solution? I just want a bit of the old me back. I miss not being able to help myself. Positive thinking only gets me so far 😊
Thanks for reading x
