ONWARD AND UPWARD ~ Moving out of the Sick Bed

Monday, May 06, 2013

Stomach bugs and Fibromyalgia can be buggers together. I can choose to let it take me down, or I can choose to be tough as nails with it. I do find though, that making that happy medium is usually the best choice. Let the body regain strength and composure at a moderate pace so I don't aggravate all the other little challenges my body brings to bear.

Sparkdom helps me make the right choices. I'm learning to take the suggestions and helps in a manner that they are guides and not demands and then I adapt them in healthy ways to my particular needs and health issues. I never thought of myself as an "A" type personality, but I am finding this seems to be my problem. My doctor works with me and shakes his head at my stubbornness at times, but together we plug along and one day I will attain the optimal health that is possible for me with the optimal limit of physical activity. This is my goal... and I WILL REACH IT

Happy Sparking to you all in Sparkdom and all my team mates!

    emoticon too and you have a terrifically positive goal oriented outlook blogged. I believe you will attain your goal, and I believe you are very right about using SP and doctor as advice and guides but not absolutes and demands. Its your Path and you have to make it workable for you. Go for it!!
