I have not thought of my my recovery of a Fibro Flare as a 48-Hour Recovery, but as I sit and think about it, it is so true. After I have a day where I am not in my "normal" activities and push it hard then thought or should have it does take me a few days to feel better. Thinking about it is about 2 day or 48 hours. Does this happen when you push through something, a deadline, a project, taking care of kids needs that are out of the ordinary?
I work from home, but from time to time I go to the training center to work and even though it is not too strenuous it takes its toll. I usually am not quite myself for a day or 2, then I get back to my "norm". If I go shopping for the day with a friend, I know the next day needs to be a quiet day. So I am going to post the link to this article and would love feed back. I hope it will give you some in site as it did for me.
