Physiotherapy – I’m so happy with how my Advanced Rehabilitation has been going for the fibromyalgia. After being so fit and active, being unable to work out due to pain has been awful. I am now four weeks into an eight week, intensive physiotherapy programme, which basically aims to loosen me up again, gain some strength and building up my resilience to the pain. The first three weeks were killers, three hours a day physio and hydrotherapy, twice a week left me coming home in pain, crying, exhausted and spending the rest of the day in bed. However, I have always been determined not to let it run my life and for it not to take my independence.
Well after reaching the point last Thursday where I didn’t think I could take any more, I spent my first weekend pain free! I can’t believe it. I managed to go to the swimming pool with the children, play and go down the slides with them for just over two hours. It may not seem a lot, but after the last year or so it meant so much. My physio has even suggested that with my progress, I could even, possibly (!) try running after Christmas! Beyond happy! I was disappointed to have to miss yesterdays session, but it wouldn’t have been wise with this virus.
Vouchers – Look what I’ve got!! Can’t wait to hit Joules this weekend – for some Christmas shopping of course!
What have you been loving this week? Have a fantastic weekend.
