Have Other Fibro Warriors Their Own Sources Of Creativity, Crafts, Hobbies, Arts?

After Lady Gaga's article got mixed reviews....;)).

I have a few go to things I do during flares. I get blury vision so reading (my passion) is limited.

Mild flares= crafts. I am a creatve person, but not very skilled with crafts. It dosen’t matter if I am having fun. Over the years i have learned to knit. Made over 100 hats for refugees. I learned to sketch, water color, and decopouge. Made Christmas gifts in July.

Major flates= games on my iphone. I can do this for hours on really bad days. It keeps my brain focused on anything other than the pain. This has saved me so many times and kept the tears at bay.

I listen to music 🎼 while I cook vegan no carb no sugar healthy meals . The healthy food is helping with my stomach issues and my energy plus it gives me some exercise working in kitchen. I use to be a great chef even had a some catering company. But I began hating what I use to love...it’s hard work and shopping for supplies too difficult. Now I have the organic veggies delivered . This is still a process I am not passionate about cooking anymore and often get frustrated and overly exhausted but I push myself because the food is helping me and it’s hard to find this kind of healthy food anywhere . Not being as active due to chronic fatigue this diet also helps with controlling weight which helps my knee. I enjoy swimming . Going out to the movies . I like plays and concerts , museums and art galleries. I enjoy the beach and 🚢 cruise vacations . Or simple country getaways . I love paintings especially my pets or blue bonnets ect ...but all these things are very hard . Only do what I can ...try my best to stay engaged in life. Trying reach inside of myself to find the chef 👩‍🍳 in me to continue to cook organic healthy meals and do it with some kind of pleasure ...mostly I find myself wondering what I ever saw in this ... it’s so hard to prep everything clean up after it...ect ect ...it takes up a lot of my energy ...I bought a new stool on wheels to try to help and listen to my music ....take my time and ask for help with the clean up. Things that once were just done without pain or lack of energy ...I would enjoy it but now it’s just a burden to get Thur ...trying to remember how important it is for my health and being grateful for the organic products I have to work with and working on my attitude Trying to relax and just do the best I can .

Mentally, I have to watch tv,or get on the internet, so my mind has to FOCUS on something that I have to think about.Otherwise, my mind focusses on the pain.

I make Reborn dolls. It’s really therapeutic for me. When I’m painting nothing matters. When I’m not, I’m so depressed and lonely feeling.
