One Hour Day

One Hour Day

Daily Antics

I hope to post most days but it will all depend on my level of fatigue and pain. Maybe this will encourage others to join in!

My first day of blogging

March 2017Posted by Flo Sat, March 25, 2017 22:11:42
Well I suppose I should make a start. My son James suggested this blog as he thinks someone might just be interested enough to read it. As I have said in the introduction on the right I have suffered with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (what used to be ME) and Fibromyalgia for many years now.

Up till the last eight or nine years I worked doing various things from selling Ann Summers (when my children were small - part time evenings and made good money) to teaching computer skills to the local newspaper employees. I loved my teaching and administration work and managed well with CFS and a sympathetic boss, who happened to be my big brother.

Frustrationgly though I had a bout of flu, proper 'can't get out of bed for a wee without help' flu that knocked me flat. I just about got back to work, literally - I was driving back to work on my first day back - and had to turn around and come home because I felt so ill. I had another bout of 'can't get out of bed for a wee without help' straight away and I've struggled to recover from it since. Some days I can be almost normal but I will always pay for it the next day or maybe even the day after that. So that's enough about that. I want to concentrate on what I can do, not what I can't.

Each day I start off with a coffee with a bit of hot chocolate added in, my own brand of mocha, along with my daily dose of painkillers. Once they have kicked in and I can move without too much stress I have my hour of activity. Sometimes it's longer, sometimes it's non existent but I try to go with at least an hour, then I feel that I have achieved something for my day.

This blog is about that hour, what I get up to and what I achieve. I hope you like it.
