Hello

hello I'm new to this site and have only recently been diagnosed. I have been reading through some of the posts, which I have found very helpful, just wish my partner would read the literature i was given at diagnosis, rather than comment on me having "lazy" days. My problem at the moment is trying to pace myself so I don't have as many "lazy" days. How do others manage to pace themselves? :snore1:

:welcome: to the forum djgs :wave: :wave:

Sorry to hear your OH is reluctant to have a look thru the info you've been given :( :( As well as info and advice on here, there are a few topics that do a good job of explaining how FM affects us and makes us feel, maybe if you printed something off and sat down with your OH and went thru things together, they might get a more understanding perspective on things, here are the linkys to them http://www.ukfibromyalgia.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=4732http://www.ukfibromyalgia.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=1761
Have you been able to ask your OH why comments about you having "lazy days" are made??

There are a couple of ways you could try and approach the pacing idea. Some find that doing something for a set amount of time, then having a rest for the same amount of time can help. Alternatively, by seeing how much you can do when things aren't too bad and how much you do when everything is turned all the way up, then finding the middle of them and using that as your gauge for how long to do things is another option. You then just need to see how long a break you need before going back to doing something. If that doesn't make sense, just say and I'll try to re-explain it :facepalm: :facepalm: :facepalm: :facepalm:

There is lots of info on here, so hopefully you'll find something helpful amongst the posts. Anything you want to know, just and we'll try to help you with it :wave: :wave: :wave:
