Meaningful help in chronic illness

What has helped me greatly in the last few years is even more profoundly acknowledging the conditions and their actual limiting of my physical stamina and activity. This is a dramatic pivot away from toughing it through, of being as courageous as possible in fatigue and pain to keep going, to overcome symptoms by acting as though they're not there. Now they are not negotiable. And do not care what's on my To Do list. Not totally bad news, though.
Adopting the acknowledgement path takes practice, and the long view. Courage is required also to set personal limits and practice them. It yields encouragement and peace, if partial! But gives increasing settled-ness as I remember to exercise it.
Taking this approach has its tricky edge that I watch for-- It is not meant for me to give up, to do nothing or to stop reading. Writing, making a meal for someone's family, or have me discouraged that no "progress" is made with the conditions. Allowing for worse days, and better days is critical too.
I keep stretching, making good food, sleeping plenty, keeping up with prescribed medicines that help.
I have fibromyalgia with its IBS, spondylosis, and degenerative disc disease.
This is long but hopefully a helpful perspective!
