But that lovely snuggly tired that you get after doing a lot. I love that feeling. It’s very different to fatigue.
Constant fatigue and pain are never easy to explain, so sometimes it’s easy to explain how much I appreciate it when I have more usual experiences.
I love endorphins. I power walk and often belt out or test my classic training because together it’s a great core workout. I do get what I remember as my default endorphin push. It’s great. I love it. My voice gets better too. My Think of Me actually sounds pretty good atm.
I still have limits to how long I can Do, but the bigger issue it the unfortunate massive fibro flare after.
My skin over every muscle that gets a work out winds up feeling bruised. The muscles mostly send out appropriate signals, but if I gently press my skin it does feel like I’ve pushed into a bruise. And that’s from origin to insertion of the muscle too.
If I brush over the skin it feels like brushing over sun burn.
On the plus side because my fibro really does feel like it’s in, on, under my skin topical NSAIDs have some role. I can’t get them to work on my RA, but for fibro? They help.
I can’t just cover myself with diclofenac every moment of every day obviously. But it feels like it works on me like it would on people without fibro.
So that too helps my stress a bit.
It’s the opposite of a limit, it’s being able to know I can extend in one way a little.
