My Life with Fibromyagia: learning to accept
Monday, October 11, 2010
It's been 10 months since my first flare up and there's still so much to learn and learn to deal with.
I've come to accept that I will get depressed because it's part of the Fibromyalgia. I've come to accept that I will be in pain every day for the rest of my life be it minimal and manageable or horrendous and crippling. I've come to accept that people aren't going to understand what I'm going through because pain can't be seen. I accept that I'm going to feel irritable and stressed when I hurt or feel overwhelmed; but I have to learn be aware to not take it out on my family.
But from a food standpoint I've hit a low today. I had a doughnut and pumpkin bread and just simply over did it. When you feel a certain way you want comfort. Tonight it was in comfort foods. I was a little frustrated when I found that I gained 2 of the 4 pounds I lost even with all of the tracking I did all month. I never went over, except today. Well, it's back to the grindstone and tracking. I guess I should look at it that it's still 2 pounds. : )
Fibro or not, I think it's time to add some exercise for a bigger deficit. I can't do high impact but if I do short spurts of low impact or some ball exercises, maybe I'll start losing again. That is another blog.... : )
Time for bed. The pain commands it. Also I'm trying to stop a pumpkin muffin craving and it's the best way to deal with it! Good night, Sparkers. Gentle hugs to all.
