Another school morning and I have to get the boys up and ready, all chaos breaks loose. I used to wake up just before waking the boys up, giving myself no ‘me time,’ whatsoever. Despite thinking I was organised the night before…when theory turned to practice…long story short… I wasn’t!
Magnesium Bath Soak (Epsom Salts)
I have focused on natural self-help methods since being diagnosed with fibromyalgia. I have had to take medication at times, the pain levels were just too high to cope with in my busy everyday life (we all know how busy life can get).
Turmeric Tea has become my yummy, healthy replacement to tea and especially coffee (although to be honest I still have one now and again, just can’t resist).
I know there are times when just the thought of exercise is way of the scale…but through personal experience and evidence it’s been shown time and time again that gentle exercise is beneficial to people with fibromyalgia in so many ways including cognitive functions.
Does the Weather Impact Your Fibro Symptoms?
I would have to say that weather is definitely a trigger for my fibro symptoms.
October kicks in the change, and it is a very definite change, my pain is worse and more widespread as well as fibro fog stealing a good part of the day.
Attitude of Gratitude!
There are days where I could just hide under my duvet cover and stay there, especially during the winter months. That slippery slope leading to depression, when you live with a chronic condition, is all too easy to slide down.
Had you heard of Fibromyalgia before you were diagnosed? Did you google your symptoms after test after test coming back fine? Think you were going a little crazy?
Who said miracles never happen? My blog is up! Well I may be a little greyer than before I started, but it’s live! Have to give a big shout out to, James Stafford, and his Youtube video, ‘How to Make a Blog 2018, without it, I would never have managed. As you’ve guessed, I am a technophobe but I’m facing the fear and doing it anyway!
