I am really struggling pushing myself to the pool

Posted Oct 10 2009 12:11am

Doc wants me to swim.  But it exhausts me.  I have severe arthritis in my entire back, knees, neck, wrists.  I also have Lupus and Fibromyalgia and some other autoimmune issues.  So I'm really struggling with the swimming thing. 

When I do go I wind up so tired and sore I can barely get out of bed for about four days after.  It's crazy.  I know I need to do the swimming and keep at it to build up some flexibility and keep muscle for my back.  But the pain meds don't help.  

I'm not sure what the trick is.  How to get past this hurdle.
