    Hi Hotpicks99 Magic wand would be great to have hun. dont push yourself too much fibro has a way of biteing you on the bum if you do. It wount hurt for the house work to wait another day get those feet up and rest. I would hate to see in bad in bed for days. house work can wait people take you as they find you or not at all.god forbid but if anything happened to us the house work would still be their tomorrow waiting to be done.now wheres that magic wand? gentle hugs take care. PACE PACE PACE YOURSELF  XXsmile

    Hi Hotpicks,

    It's horrible having to juggle life with fibro - especially as people won't know it's there because 'we all look well' (They can't see the true face we hide) and we tend to carry on regardless.

    Put yer feet up with a nice cuppa and book/mag/tv/radio/whatever it takes to relax and rest - Fibro loves us to try and ignore it and carry on because the harder we try to ignore it the harder it beats us up

    And as for the housework - How does the saying go? 

    'Don't put off until tomorrow what you can do today' well I say 'Don't do today what you can put off til tomorrow'

    Rest up x

    Hello Hotpicks,

    Your hate wednesdays post caught my attention. When i wirked full-time, (sadly no longer can) I thought wednesdays was a great day, halfway thro week, and only 2 more to do, I still try to think that as a positive now! Great replies here, re the housework. I used to be the same ( still am to a certain extent ). but I do like it to be tidy, and stress out if not. I have learnt that if things are not as you wish just to accept, if you can't change it. Am on a mindfulness course at the moment, and it is really helping, praps you could ask your Doc about this.

    Take care, Anne

I know its hard we just want to do what we use to do and want our home to be kept as its always been kept. but that is easily said than done with our condition. we have to pace ourselves and just do what we can. as mr fibro just loves knocking us back as you have found today. dont you just love mr fibro? you take care rest up and remember to pace pace pace big hug coming to you xxsmile
