Well I am back again……………

Things have been very much up and down, (as I expect with Fibromyalgia and my condition) my coping has been well, considering the living pressures we have all struggled with this year. I find my condition has worsened in some areas, my hips are a constant pain really breath taking at times, my lower back is still as ever, I cannot lay now on my back or either hip so each night I toss and turn continually, but some sleep is acheived some nights. I am going to physio in the next couple of weeks, started swimming again but found that I couldnt swim although I used to swim for miles and always have done. As I layed in the water I turned to take a stoke and the pain was tremendous, I have also always been able to float without help and I could not do this also. I came away confused and in severe pain I havnt been back yet but will shortly I wish to get back what I have lost, I felt so cheated as I have swum all my life confidently and even been able to rescue my husband when he became distressed and in need of help when taking a 4 mile swim in currents. All ended well and when we looked around there were many younger than my husband being helped back to the boat as unable to continue to swim to beach due to currents. We were in paradise remember the film ( the Beach) that is where we was. I digress I find with every day that goes by I am getting more determined now to beat my bodies behavour and to live more peacefully within my body. I have also been asked to take steriod during this physio treatment and my extra activities to help my muscle tone, I have always feared steriod but I am assured that taking just for a short time to help with the pain should not be a problem. I have also thrown myself into my Etsy, Folksy and DaWanda shops, I have bought more wholesale fabric (for barbie doll clothes) and been able to lower my prices, I have to go through all my shops now to make changes before christmas so I have set myself a hefty task as well as taking on all treatment, but I have set a realist task for daily input wish me luck. I have had some dark days but have still been fighting but I shall continue to fight, let me know how you are getting on…………. gentle hugs
