Well, life has just been a series of physical therapy sessions interspersed with more daytime television than could possibly be healthy...still looking for work. I can't wait to see what Sammy does to get back at Kate on Days! :) Someone help me I've fallen off the soap opera wagon!

I've now been in PT for 1 1/2 weeks and I can't believe how much better I am doing. It is really amazing how much moderate aerobic activity does help my fibro. Emphasis on the MODERATE part. In the past I've tried to do too much too fast and ended up in pain and then would end up giving up. I started out slow and for only 10 minutes at a time on the treadmill and I've slowly picked up a touch of speed and am now doing 15 minutes 2x a day at 2 miles per hour. That means I've walking a mile a day. It's a start. My physical therapists also have me doing strength training exercises with my legs and arms that are really helping too. I have a thera-band I use at home (rubber tube/resistance band thingy) and I use the weight machines during my PT sessions.

Between the improvement from PT and from taking the Zoloft - plus the hormone therapy I'm on to help with the fatigue (which really seems to be kicking in now that I've been on it a couple months) I'm thinking it should even be possible for me to work full-time if I can find a pretty low stress job. I started applying to full-time stuff in addition to the part-time stuff a few weeks ago. We'll see what turns up. One thing's for sure I'm sick of sitting at home all day watching soaps. :)
