One struggle that many fibromyalgia patients face (on top of dealing with symptoms) is the strain that the debilitating condition places on relationships. It can be difficult to maintain friendships that predated your condition. Some people are just not understanding of those with chronic illness. So does that mean you are doomed to loneliness? Absolutely not!
Here are a few tips for maintaining friendships while dealing with a chronic illness:
To maximize your ability to spend time with friends and even feel up to doing things like tidying up the house before company comes over, it is important to take every action you can to cope with your chronic ailment. One way to do that is through upper cervical chiropractic adjustments. These gentle and precise adjustments are long-lasting and give the body the time it needs to heal from problems that are caused by an atlas (C1) subluxation. To learn if this is a viable form of care for you, contact a local practitioner to schedule a consultation.
