Disease Doesn't Define
There are things that you will have to adjust in your life. For example, I don't do jumping activities because it causes much pain in my hip. I am not going to be stupid and continue jumping. if I continue jumping, I could tear a muscle or break something. Don't let your disease define you, but don't do something that could cause more pain than fun to your body. I still do fun activities. Walking, playing with my dogs, stretching, and playing with my young nieces/ nephews are some of the physical activities I do. If there is a casual game of catch, soccer, or volleyball: I will occasionally join. Dancing with a group of friends is another favorite activities.
There is definitely a balance between don't let your disease define you and don't do more damage to your body. Each person is different and has to discover their own balance. I am still learning where my balance is. Have a lovely Monday!
