The Boom or Bust Cycle

Are you familiar with the Boom and Bust Cycle…?

If you not. This cycle is just one example why flare ups occur.

A Good Day

I don’t know about you, but when I wake up on a good day I feel like I can take on the world. My energy levels are up and a glimpse of my old former self shines through. It’s on these days I feel I can catch up with all the jobs I haven’t managed to do yet. It could be the housework, washing or shopping. I made sure I would fit in a gym session and a catch up with some mates. It was the guilt setting in see. Telling me not to waste my good days. The next day would follow. I’d wake up still feeling relatively ok again. I would repeat the same process. Trying to fit in as much as possible into that one day. Was this a good idea? At the time yes, but the over activity would catch up with me.

Over Activity

Over activity. What does that mean? To me it means over doing your limitations. I may have felt ok at the time to carry out all these activities, task and catch ups. However In hindsight it would be a totally different story. I over exerted my body and pushed it to its limit.

Flare Ups and Pain

Over doing my limitations on a good day, having a flare up and being in pain is inevitable. My symptoms will arise again. I will ache, have pain all over my body and my neck would go into spasm. Oh no…! Here comes the brain fog, migraines and my eye sight is going blurry. I’m fatigued and drained. I’m telling myself again. What I already knew. “I over done it” I am now entering into a flare up. A flare up can last for days or weeks with me. It does vary from time to time. All I can do now is rest and look after myself. More importantly I must how learn to listen to my body.

    I’m amazed, I have to admit. Seldom do I come across a blog that’s both equally educative and engaging, and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head. The issue is something which too few people are speaking intelligently about. I am very happy I came across this in my search for something regarding this.
