Fibro Feelings – Balancing Fun, Health & Responsibilities

What is Fibro Feelings?

The healing from last week has continued on into this week! My back is almost back to 100%! Woo-hoo! My National Park hiking is on track! I’ve really had to hold myself back from doing things that might have altered that, like vacuuming. Remember The Helpful Hubby’s visiting co-worker that we thought might be staying with us? Last week we found out he definitely would be staying here, starting Wednesday night. So, I’ve been doing laundry, straightening and cleaning, but only in small bits at a time. For this house guest I had to ask The Helpful Hubby to help out more than normal and he did. I’m so blessed to be with him forever!

Among all my healing and house preparations I was feeling pretty fatigued. On Saturday I wanted to support two friends being showcased in an annual event. When it came time to leave to go there even The Helpful Hubby was wondering if I should stay home. I made the mistake of doing an adrenalin filled cleaning spree that ended only 45 minutes before I needed to get ready to go. That 45 minutes wasn’t enough time to re-cooperate before getting ready, so by the time I was putting my earrings in I was ready to go to bed. I missed my friends’ event last year so I really felt I needed to go, even if I was only able to last standing 30 minutes. We had previously been invited to meet up with my friends and another couple after the event for dinner and drinks. For days I had been saying I wasn’t sure we’d go, but we’d see. I was SO glad I’d responded that way because I felt no pressure to go to dinner afterward and my friends had no expectations of us being there.

I made it through the last hour of the event (the time we were there) and the punch and excitement of the event got me feeling alert enough to want to have dinner and drinks afterward. We had such a fun time laughing the night away that our group ended up being the last people in the restaurant! I was so happy that I’d decided to go to the event and play dinner by ear. I could have easily let my fibromyalgia keep me from supporting friends and from having an amazing night! Besides, laughter is always good for the soul and our health!

The fun didn’t even stop there! Monday night some of The Helpful Hubby’s co-workers took their visiting co-worker to his first baseball game. I went with them and told our guest all about rally caps, Cracker Jacks and the wave. Stay tuned for an upcoming post with tips & tricks for going to a baseball game! This week was truly all about balancing my life so that I could have fun, continue healing and carry out my responsibilities.

Do you have plans to go to a baseball game (professional or not) this year?

So glad you were able to go to your friends event. It’s all about balance isn’t it?

Thanks, Ashley! It really is all about balance, especially when you’re trying to accomplish multiple things!
