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)
Since being diagnosed with fibro, I have focused on holistic methods to self-help. Now that’s not to say I have never taken medication…I have but only found that medication came with it’s own problems and didn’t have an impact on my symptoms.
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.
Change in climate is not a factor impacting on fibromyalgia symptoms according to one doctors study…
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!
