physio predicted a burnout for me

Postby masonsbarms » Sat Jul 21, 2012 3:37 pm

hi i went back with my daily diary to physio yesterday.

came out realy scared for myself,

after reading my life pattern he said i will burnout if i dont change my ways.

i know i have said that i need to learn to pace and now i realy do.

i know i have been having more pain and fatique but put it down to whats been happening latley.

well i was devastated yesterday and just shut it out of my mind.

today i have realised that i will have to change myways i cant beet fibro but i wont let it beet me.

i think if i get my head round it we can have a truce i wont push it and it may stop attacing me.

this week will be busy getting sorted for hols but a week away will be a good start.

any more tips to help get head right and still do my job .

take care xx

Hi MB, sorry to hear you had news you didnt really want
from your physio, maybe its just a suggestion from her
that you should take stock..think you said here before you work
full time and have a family to care for, can you maybe cut your
hours...know its scary when these things are said to you, I've had
an enforced rest the past 10 days or so, and..its not easy when
you know whats got to be done. You obviously know from looking
at your diary how much you are doing, and you have had added
stress to boot, have yourself a bit of 'me time', and above
all try to relax with :wine: and [chocolate] put your
feet up and your earphones on and let the world go by :sleep:
tk care :wave:

You'll sort things MB eventually pacing will become part of your daily living and things will be easier to manage :hugs: :hugs:

My sentiments exactly :girl_moon: :girl_moon: :girl_moon: :girl_moon:

That must have been one helluva shock, being told you're heading towards burnout :shock: :yikes: Looking at it from my slightly skewed approach to things tho, it could been seen as fortunate that you have been told about it as it gives you the chance to reassess and look into what changes can be made to establish that truce with FM and live with it instead of thinking things are OK, only for it to bite you on the bum and knock you down again :waiting: :waiting: :waiting:

Workwise, you may need to contemplate easing off the more physical aspects to a certain degree, or look into how you might be able to do things in a more comfortable position.

Hollibobs is very definitely the right and best way to start things off, maybe having some distance between you and "life" will help with coming up with the right approach to things :bear-dancing: :bear-dancing: :bear-dancing:

I've got 3 weeks to go for hollibobs, and for the first time in a long time I can't wait for it to come as it's the first time since we have been together that me and OH are going away minus the mutant teenager :bear-dancing: :bear-dancing: :bear-dancing: :bear-dancing: :bear-dancing: :bear-dancing: :bear-dancing: :bear-dancing: :bear-dancing: :bear-dancing:
