Fibro; not letting it slow me down.

Fibro; not letting it slow me down.

So here I sit. I have not blogged in almost 2 weeks. Summer for me is go, go, go. If I thought it was going to change once I finally was diagnosed. It was wrong. In the past 2 + weeks. I have gone camping (twice), horseback riding (hurt like crazy doing), kayaking, water skiing, worked, running crazy with my daughter to her activities and having a drama filled rollercoaster of a personal life. I have had minor flares during this time. Nothing full out. I am hurting right now – but I am not sure if it is related to sore muscles from doing lots of hiking and horse back riding this weekend or the lack of sleep and having it be the start of my “week”. I am in the same boat as most summers- the house is picked up (not clean, clean), the lawn is not mowed, the flower garden is now a weed garden and I don’t seem to have enough time in the day. However, I have always had this problem. I am trying not to let this affect me at all. I kept up with all of the other mom’s at camp and even was helping them and the counselors.
Now, I hurt – lower back and upper legs. Just took a long hot lavendar bubble bath, hope to get some sleep (napped all day).
I am not under the impression that I can continue this and still be ok. I just want to live my life as normal as I can for as long as I can. My housework may suffer but my daughter won’t – speaking of which (I am blessed with a daughter that helps me when she sees that her Mom is slowing up).
