Trying Massage…one more time

Part of the issue with Fibro is that my muscles are extremely tight and I always feel like I just worked out hard.  You know that feeling a day or two after you have exercised in a way your body isn't used to?  That's how I always feel but without the benefits of the workout.... Continue Reading →

Brightening up a gray, wet Fall day

Not one of my best days. It's damp and cold outside which always equals painful hands and hips at a minimum.  today it's hands, hips, knees, and neck.
