Living With Fibromyalgia
For those who have a diagnosis of Fibromyalgia, living a normal life may seem impossible. Fortunately, though, there is hope for those living with Fibromyalgia. There are many ways that you can make your life a little easier and live the life that you deserve.
One of the most important things that you can do in your battle with Fibromyalgia is to find an active support group. This is especially helpful if you do not see a counselor on a regular basis. Talking with others who have the disease can help you to find new coping methods and ways to dealing with the stress and the toll that pain takes on your body.
Another important aspect of living with Fibromyalgia is to establish a daily exercise routine. This may seem impossible when you are in pain and you are exhausted, but by just doing 10 minutes of exercise, you can begin to feel better. If you can exercise for 10 minutes after every meal, then you can get in 30 minutes of exercise per day. Even if the most you can do is some light stretches on the floor, exercise can make your feel better and give you more energy.
Choosing the eat foods that are good for you is another method of treatment that you can do for yourself. Keep a food diary of what you eat each day along with how you feel in the morning, noon and at night. Soon, you will see a pattern emerge and you will be able to discern which foods make your feel better and which ones make your feel worse.
By getting regular exercise, eating a healthy diet and getting the proper support you can improve your quality of life. Living with Fibromyalgia is not impossible, but it does take work.
