Achieving A Quality Life With Fibro

Achieving A Quality Life With Fibro

We are each responsible for how we manage our own personal Fibro~hell.

With kindness and love for my Fibro~Friends,

Rather than what's not being done and staying the same,
I'd love to hear how you've successfully stabilised enough to have some quality of life
what are you doing?
Many Blessings :) x

I poo pooed the diagnosis for a few years, didn't help. I moaned about it for a few years, didn't help. My ex husband did not understand my fibro at all and certainly didn't accept me sleeping or getting behind in the housework, etc. I worked 2 jobs back then and my kids were just leaving home, though I had fibro long before I was diagnosed. I got a divorce, moved 3000 miles away and started a new life where I could focus on me. My new husband tells me "naps are good," "there is always tomorrow to clean the house," etc. He is so supportive and encouraging and he makes my life easier. I read that waterbed help with the pain and he said ok let's get a waterbed. Going to the gym helps so we got gym memberships. Just having the pressure to be perfect lifted off my shoulders makes every day better. Knowing our limitations and stretching our boundaries a little at a time makes all of the difference.
May you each find the inner strength to keep up the good fight.

Hi @A MyFibroTeam Member, I love your insight ....

I was just thinking tonight, as I was watching my husband do stuff with me, and for me helping get our dinner.....
how much easier my life is since I accepted that I need the help that is offered, and given to me.....
especially now that I will allow and accept the help I need.....
finding acceptance has certainly helped me greatly.......
I was always so gun ho, and to stubborn to admit I needed help, that I would do everything myself.....
then fall in a great heap of pain......
now I think how stupid was I.....

Light physical therapy definitely helps, stretching, and I've eliminated major stressors in my life including toxic ppl.

I pace my life. I work but don't do days next to each other. I plan my days and am kind to myself don't give myself too much to do. I have 4 youngish children so have to be around and do things so try not to be hard on myself.

I must agree with Jade. Stretching and decreasing stress. Retiring from teaching helped me so much. I took a ton of stress out of my life when I did that.
