My head as been wonky. My ears are buzzing loudly and I’m surprised I can hear anything at all. My balance is worse than normal. My body aches, thanks fibromyalgia and osteoarthritis. I sometimes choke when eating. Through all this I enjoy my life.
Yet I am still living my life. I am trying to do yoga or walk daily, some days I just can’t. I go to church, out to eat and schedule activities. Mop Baseball games, football games and birthday parties along with the occasional concert. I am trying to go to concerts while I can still hear.
I use a cane when I need too. Sometimes I use my husband instead. This week and past week has been worse than normal. I refuse to lay in bed and skip the fun. I take naps before going on excursions. This is simply part of my routine. Rest before fun.
My advice to everyone is to get out when you can. Rest on bad days. Don’t stop living life. Do whatever you need to do to accommodate your disability so that you can love your life despite chronic illness.
Love, Peace and Light! Rita
