One thing I would really like to do in 2016 is find a way to manage fibro fog. I find the worst symptom of fibro for myself is the mental exhaustion. I am always saying I probably would keep the pain if I could have my brain back. I find it embarrassing when I can’t think of the word I’m trying to say or when I say something stupid.
One of my new years resolutions is to find time each week to do some relaxation. When I say find time, I want it to be manageable because if i try and do it at a point I haven’t got time to do it – well then that defects the object because i’d just get more stressed hey?!
I spend most of the time feeling as though my mind is clouded, I hate not being able to think straight. It is exhausting and the thing I really hate most about fibro. I realised after going to the gym yesterday that after a good workout it is one of the only times my brain feels awake. It is like a good workout helps get rid of all the tension, anger and stress clouding my brain and I can think straight, if only temporarily. I can’t see myself living at the gym just to have a fibro fog free brain so I would like to find other ways to de-stress and help what I consider the worst part of this horrible condition.
Do you have any tips on how to ease the fibro fog? What do you do? I would love to hear. Remember you can tweet me at @onceuponafibro or comment below
