    I tried. I did. Dercums Disease, what I have, is very rare. I can go to an ER for another reason and the doctor has to look it up.
    I ended up in a flare of PAIN after two days. This happens after everything I try including yoga. The stretching and deep breathing feel so good at first but then those muscles fight back.
    I tried pilates. I can say that.
    I walk a couple miles with my dog Tanner almost every day. I will keep up with that. Live in the tranquility of when I can walk in the mountains and swim in Lucky Peak here near Boise Idaho.
    Thank you for showing this practice to me and everyone

    Trying counts because it fosters hope. Hope is a way of believing in and nurturing Future You. I have to believe My chronic illness is a gift. I wish you the best with yours.
