I can still look after myself and my kids. Hoping this will continue for a while yet. I think having them to care for helps me as it gets me out of bed day after day. Otherwise I would probably lie in and not move. Moving helps me.

I've recently found out I can still sew :-D It takes me longer than it used to, I made many mistakes along the way, but I have managed so far to make a 50s style tea dress that I went out in a couple of weeks ago, and stunned everyone who asked where I had got it from that I had made it :$ ;-)

I love the title of the topic....Things we can still do!

When I was going through my tribunal hearings not only did I get tired of hearing people say I can't do this or that but the actual Dr's and judges. They had a name for it..the, I-can't- itus.

They seemed more impressed by people saying I can do this but with difficulty or I can do this in a different way. I have heard from many Dr's over the many years that people get so wrapped up in what they can't do, that they actually make themselves feel worse.

Don't get me wrong. I know just as much as others how fibromyalgia can affect your ability. I also think that if we focus on the positive, what we can still do or enjoy it gives us a sence of accomplishment, self worth. There are things that we may never do again but I think it is healthier not to focus on those things.

Thanks again for the topic.

I still can do a variety of things. Differently, slower, a lot less of the activity and even by participating in a new way.

I seem quite fortunate compared to some. Although always sore and all the other lovely symptoms we have I still manage most things all be it slower and differently.
I just need to focus on the positive as right now I am in a negative frame of mind. Think it is post holiday dip and letting pacing slip a bit.
I love whoami's I-can't-itus very good. :teddy-bear:

I can still do most things...either with a lot of pain at the time or I suffer for it later with a flare up!

I'm still able to be walked by the :dogrun1: We don't go as far as we used to, and it takes us a fair bit longer, but whilst I'm still able to be taken out by her, I'll keep going. As well as the exercise, there is the social aspect too. We often see people who we have met over the years, and with whom friendships have grown.

I remember being "walked by our dog". Slow when it rained as if to say well you brought me out in this weather.
Also he sat down if I went a different way from the one he wanted to go. No guesses who one that battle. :teddy-bear:

I decided that my life was over when I first got diagnosed. I fell into such a deep depression that I became sociaphobic and completely stopped leaving the house.
Since I decided to give myself a kick up the bum I find that I appreciate different things than before and in many ways life is better than ever. I may as well hurt enjoying myself because it hurts doing nothing

It is a fantastic philosophy to live life by!! I do the same with the doghairs, I usually last a couple of days, by then OH will be off {he works shifts} and will have a workout with Max The Vax ;-) ;-)
