I have found that for me I don't know weather it's that I've learnt to live with fms or that I just block it out as much as possible now or what it is but I find that sometimes it's almost like I forget about it. First of all I should say that I have found that the best thing for me is to continue a daily form of exercise (walking and or stretching) or I really really feel the pain and almost "cease up" if you like. So I don't know if ths is the reason for my "forgetfulness" or not. Anyway last week I was talking to my sister in law about how I want to hurry up and finish the course I am doing through distance education and she said to me to "slow down and take things easy, remember that you are sick" and for a moment I almost answered back what the hell are you talking about I feel fine when in actual fact I'm really tired almost all of the time and when I am honest about it I really ache all over. This was only moments after telling her about how long it had taken me earlier in the day to actually be able to get up off the couch and walk properly (even if I did walk slower than my grandma lol.) Do you find you have times like this? I felt so stupid afterwards you would think that after all these years its really something that I would remember when I'm having a flare lol Maybe it was just wishful thinking?????
