TINYANDTOUGH is off to a bad start
Default Lifting with Chronic Illnesses?

I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia last year and suspect that I have lupus also (I have many symptoms that my mother with lupus has) and was wondering if anyone else has chronic illnesses but still manage to lift and have a healthy life with exercise.

Feeling really discouraged about it lately.

The problem with asking doctors is they tend to say "don't!" a lot; I shouldn't be lifting heavy with TOS and I'm sure my own doctors would advise against it (since all interent medical published info does) but I want to lift, so I lift.

Sometimes we just have to know and understand when to pull back and how much to put into training etc.

Rich is the epitome of be who you are DESPITE your "limitations" instead of BECAUSE of them.
