- DX FIBRO
I know what you mean. But I prefer not to demonize anything: it's not fibromyalgia, it was me myself. I tried for a long time to do more than my body was capable of. It seemed to be capable of it, I was good at doing a lot and got really fit in body and mind, so it seemed OK. But I was getting warned inside and outside that I was doing too much. And I couldn't listen to the warning signs, to my body. Blame people, things that happened, having an oversensitive body, myself, but not fibro. I was too "addicted" to feeling good about doing things for others plus for myself. Fibromyalgia is just the name given to the result of having overdone it all. Well no, not necessarily all. Just didn't stop in time when the Ache started & increased for 8 years before.Fibromyalgia is a thief. It robs us
And now it's not that I can't enjoy any simple pleasures, I just have to enjoy them shorter and more intensely, no longer binging. I'd never been able to eat just a small bit of chocolate and hated dark chocolate. Now I prefer it and a small bit is just fine.... I spose it's a bit mind of a matter, but it was mind over matter that started it going wrong in the first place, so that's an appropriate consequence...
Dunno if you've read the other thread - due to the breath-holding helping me improve pain & energy a bit, I've been starting to look for new self-treatments and acupressure came up (cos I'd been using something similar for my increased esophagus blocks which was no longer helping). Just now I came out of a cold shower for more energy and after a few minutes my skin started itching & burning, so I quickly looked up itchiness and found something which worked pretty quickly, altho I don't believe in it at all, especially not for my skin of all things . Let's see if these are ... 5... one offs today. (Sciatica comes up a lot too as I said on that thread. let's see...)
