Welcome to our family. I am so glad that you found us and that you decided to join us. Like you, many of us have had to limit our outdoor activities and re-arrange our lives so as not to cause a flare-up. I also enjoyed hiking, biking, swimming etc and had to completely change the way that I do these things.
It is possible to still do some outdoor activities, you just have to limit the amount of time that you are exposed to the sun, give yourself plenty of rest breaks, and do some activities in the evening.
We all suffer from the fatigue and it can be debilitating at times. Add to this the pain that we endure and it feels as if we are held prisoner by our bodies. But, in spite of these limitations, many of us find ways to live relatively normal lives and to continue to enjoy some of the things that we once enjoyed.
Please read through the forums (especially the stickys) and get to know our family here. Pop into any conversation that you like and ask any questions that you may have. You will find a lot of information, advice, suggestions and help amongst our members. I am sure that some of what you find will be helpful to you. Also, please know that there is always someone here whenever you are in need. Again...welcome to our family
Peace and Blessings
Look For The Good and Praise It!
