I'm sorry @lizardlady ...

I'm of no use when it comes to the exercise thing!

I think it gets to a point that the doctors are being quite unreasonable with their expectations!

They tell me the same thing and I'm like YOU SEE ME, RIGHT?

On two canes, in much pain & barely able to ambulate?!

And you want me to exercise?!

I'm so over the Medical Industrial Complex!

🤬

Good Morning Fibro Friends ...

Did a little road trip up to the Casino yesterday and it proved to be more than my body could handle.

So, there goes another fun hobby I'll have to sacrifice because of PsA.

It sucks to live with so much pain, fatigue and loss of function ...

This is a very cruel disease!

Oh Pflower, I'm so sorry you've lost going to the casino. This damned disorder steals so much from us.

As for the exercise, I've decided to do what I can. I've been told by others that I am pretty active for someone with these disorders. Going to tell the doc I'm doing the best I can

Thanks @lizardlady ...

It is a thief for sure.

And, regarding that exercise stuff ...

Doing the best you can is good enough.

Have A Safe & Happy Friday!

Good Morning Fibro Friends ...

Fibromyalgia Check-In Thread #6 ...

Happy Saturday!
________

I'm going to create a facebook page called Able-Bodied AssTwits, and when somebody that is NOT disabled illegally parks in a disability spot (or the wheelchair load/unload zone), I'll snap a photo of their vehicle and tag (along with date, time & location) and post it publicly on that page! So over the Pricks & Prickettes that do this. You're illegally parked & you're hindering disabled people's access --- MOVE YOUR SORRY, ABLE-BODIED ASSES ALREADY! 🤬

Thanks for the kind welcome backs, Pflower and LL. I can only come back when I'm feeling stronger.

I would automatically got to the types of exercise that do not put pressure on joints: as in, swimming, light stationary cycling, and light, but repetitive weight lifting (take it very easy). Swimming is awesome because it can burn so many calories (and build up/ maintain so much muscle mass) without harming. Those are the first three I can think of.

There might be more suggestions online.

I discovered I am already getting cardio workout doing chores around the farm. I decided for the days I'm not doing anything anything around the farm that gets my heart rate up I will do yoga or drag my exercise bike out. MusemGhost, I love the idea of swimming but don't have access to a pool.

The cold and damp really do do a number on us, don't they?

Pain Sucks!

Gentle hugs all around ...
________

I guess I ought to update my status ...

I've gone from two canes to a walker.

Things were getting quite a bit unsteady on those two canes.

I still use them in smaller places around my cottage, but ...

Those are spaces where if I start to fall there are plenty of places I can catch myself on.

The last thing those two disability doctors told me was to not fall.

They said if I fall then it would be over ...

Therefore, I'm doing my best to not fall.

The walker definitely provides more safety, stability & balance for sure.

May Tuesday Be Kind To Us ...

Oh, My!

Could be a flare ...

Those tend to come on, often without explanation, and ...

Serve only to make an already painful situation even worse!

Hope it releases you from its grip soon ...

Was doing okay physically until a couple of days ago. Then a fibro flare started. Still hurt and have no functional brain cells.

How are you doing?

Those flares are bizarre, inexplicable & excruciatingly painful!

I've graduated to a walker ...

I detest the thing, but it does provide more stability & steadiness.

I just wish it would do something for the pain ...

The pain sucks!
