Special Spark Thanks to Bikecook and Candik48 for their recent encouraging words. You helped bring me back here today.
Things have been going...okay! I had a long hard day for a fibro person, yesterday, but I accomplished stuff. This was the second time in recent memory that I've had a busy, productive for me, day. I didn't do much that would strain a healthy person. I visited my relatives at a park. And after an hour, I was ready to go home.
But, it had been my suggestion that we all meet there, so I wouldn't have to drive as far. So, instead of bailing, I suggested we take the party indoors, to a nearby attraction. This meant we could avoid the worst of the Florida heat. To my surprise, there was general agreement to my suggestion and I was able to spend another hour watching the kids climb around on an indoor playground while I drank a frosty beverage and talked to my sister and nieces. The drive and the heat combined to wear me out and triggered a number of cramps during the night. But, I did it.
And so I feel that the time in the pool is helping to strengthen me, even if it is exhausting to face it every second day. I look forward to the day when "daily exercise" might be possible. Though, today, I shall rest.
