Fibro Feelings – Step by Step

What is Fibro Feelings?

Sometimes all we can do is take things step by step instead of devouring the entire process all at once. These past few weeks all I can wrap my head around is the current week that I’m in. There are way too many stressors and things on my calendar that looking at weeks at a time is slightly over whelming. I was thinking next week was supposed to be better, but now that I just looked, I realized it doesn’t get much easier until mid-October. Sometimes I feel like “The Little Engine that Could”…”I think I can, I think I can” get through this feeling alright.

I’ve been doing pretty good except for some eye twitching from stress. I’ve also been battling some fairly bad back pain, but I think I’m going to try getting a pregnancy support belt to see if that helps. The physical therapist who taught the pelvic health class I took thought it might. Although the pain has limited my activities, it hasn’t had me on the verge of tears or stopped me from doing too many things. I finally took this huge Snoogle pregnancy pillow to a laundromat to get it washed and dried and I’m going to see if sleeping with it tonight helps. One of my friends that I met through the Arthritis Foundation passed it along to me.

Last week I mentioned that I wasn’t going to be able to get a massage during the Healing Hands for Arthritis Event, but I did take someone else to their appointment. While I waited in the waiting area, the staff there treated me like a queen. They got me a heated aromatherapy neck wrap, talked to me about my volunteer with the Arthritis Foundation, gave me a free chair massage out in the sun and offered me cookies and water. What a nice surprise! I didn’t even end up reading any of the magazines I’d brought with me to keep me busy. While I was there I also happened to run into some of my local Arthritis Foundation staff. They had stopped by the Massage Envy clinic I was waiting at to thank them for their participation in the event.

Are you working through anything step by step?

Step by Step is all we can do and as long as we are taking steps even if it seems like tiny steps we will be ok.

Agreed! Although, I’m usually able to look a little further ahead, I know when I need to alter my approach.
