    Mine get worse if I try to push myself to do things I used to be able to do, the only thing (other than meds) that's been helping me is coming to acceptance and understanding that I am not physically the person I used to be. I have to relearn my limitations on nearly a daily basis, and try to keep myself withing those standards to not cause a flare up. Rest and mental mindfulness are difficult things and take constant practice. I'm still learning new things about myself, but also looking up to those who are in a physically worse position than me. I try to remember those I've lost, and how physically limited they were and still pushed themselves. I keep telling myself "if they can do it I can do it too". You may have to do things in different ways, but don't let it stop you from living your life and doing what you love!

    My flare ups happen when weather changed harshly or if i over heat my body (movement/exercise too much) for me, I find a place to sit down and take breathers. That usually helps till my flare up goes down. I keep in mind how worse others are then i am snd i look at what i have and be thankful for it.
