I invite you to join me on this blog. Together we can share our experiences with Fibromyalgia and related medical issues.
I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia in February, 2003. I was on a leave of absence from my job as a legal secretary, unable to work due to fatigue and Fibromyalgia pain. My husband, Dwain and I made the decision to retire in the spring. We put our home for sale and decided to live in our 37'
Fifth Wheel full-time. Full-timing has been good for my Fibro. I have a smaller home to clean. The people we meet during our travels are happy, fun folks. I enjoy looking out my window in the morning to see what my new yard looks like with no worry about needing to mow or water the yard.
I have been experiencing a flare. I know the best medicine is rest, rest and more rest. Unfortunately like many Fibroites, I tend to push myself....sound familiar? I hate to miss fun experiences, because I have a chronic illness. Therefore, I pay the consequences. I try to balance fun with rest. It's about learning YOU and how YOU react to your daily activities, whether it be fun activities or housework.
