I felt I had lost my identity and personality - Any motivation tips?
Hi. I have multiple conditions but the most disabling of these are spinal stenosis and fibromyalgia. I live alone in Devon in a sheltered flat which I love. My partner moved away to be nearer his family. We still have a relationship. I have a grown up son and daughter that I adore. I used to be very active, playing tennis and badminton and swimming regularly. I was known for my high heeled shoes and big handbags. Having to give all that up I felt like I had lost my identity and personality. I have finally come to accept these restrictions but I find it hard to find any motivation on a daily basis. I sit for far too much of the day, telling myself I'll get up in a minute and do this or that! I'd like to hear everyone's journey and any motivational tips. Thank you for reading x
