I've now finished my first week of physical therapy. One day on land, one in the water. I was surprised at how exhausted I was after each session. During the sessions, it felt like no big deal at all. I was actually kind of worried that it was a waste of my time. I'm shocked at how sore I was afterwards. And hungry. My appetite hasn't been huge for the past two months, so that really caught me off guard. Such a little amount of movement and exercise caused such a reaction. I'm still sore in my back from Wednesday's session, but I'm moving really well and not in a horrible amount of pain.
I'm not entirely convinced that this really is fibro when I have days like this. It has to be something else. Then the brain fog kicks in. It's almost constant these days. That's the worst side affect I have. I can't help but wonder if this is what it feels like when you start to go senile? I pause mid-sentence and forget what I was saying. I am convinced I said or did something and it turns out I didn't. I have trouble making simple decisions or keeping focused on anything for too long. In fact, I've started and stopped writing this post about 3 times now. Can you have ADD and be senile? Because that's about how my brain feels. It's frustrating.
