Anyone else overdone it?

Postby Butterfly8588 » Sat Dec 17, 2016 7:16 pm

Hi guys,
Christmas time is my absolute favourite time of year, I love the music, the lights, the decorations. Everything really! In my excitement to do everything I wanted for Christmas (light switch on, market etc) I've massively overdone it and am in so much pain. I'm still very excited for Christmas though but wish I didn't have to ration my enthusiasm.
Anyone else overdone it?
Gentle hugs xxx

Hi
I seem to never find a decent balance. I'm either doing far too much (which I think is pathetically minor amounts compared to my life before fibro) or in bed, there seems to be no in between.
The real killer is that the less I do, the less I find I can do later! It's a vicious circle.

The one thing I find helps me is hyperbaric oxygen therapy. I attend a chamber in East Grinstead.

Hope you wake with many more spoons xx

yip definitely over done it, been up and down the road due to motherinlaw in hospital and then taking presents its a 4 and half hour journey each way so we always stay at least one night, then home yesterday again and up this morning to be fooled by a body that said yehhh im feeling great, went a wee walk anc collected fir cones for the fire then decided i was gonnna chop kindles just in case we lose power with the forecast storm! well i stopped and put axe away and took the shakes half way back up the garden so it was the sofa for the next two hours till they stopped, but been and put my camera out in the cold to try and capture aurora photos and the cold is killing me tomorrow i know i will be on teh sofa all day Im so lucky I can often do stuff and manage most of the day but i just cant do it day after day! I try to pace but some days i just have a massive brain fart and go crackers doing stuff, its like once i start i cant stop i get an adrenalin rush and cant sit still longso i cram as much in as i can and look forward to a day in bed and in pain (not) but hey at least stuff is done lol
hope you all have a happy and reasonably pain free xmas

I love the hustle and bustle of Christmas but I'm definitely pacing myself. It's so important to take time to relax. Today I'm watching a movie, snuggling with my cats and eating chocolates :-)

Merry Christmas everyone :-D

Hugs

Hi All

I'm getting better at "listening" to my body and pacing myself.
Sometimes, we have no option but to bash away. But if we don't have to, it's important to take time out for ourselves.
No point "doing ourselves in" and ending up crippled for a week.
I truly feel for parents who have FM, and young children - must be totally exhausting. At least I can park my bahookie and chill when I feel tired.

Much Love
Lindy x

My power wife did overdo it too. I feel so sorry for her. Shes having a rough time at the moment.

All made worse by my selfish dad (see my other post) unfortunately, who seems to try to monopolise my time at the moment.

I just wish my poor wife would moan a bit more but she just wont.
