One person’s challenge: how I push myself with fibromyalgia

Traveling with Fibromyalgia

Bank Holidays are the dream, and I love nothing more than doing something a little bit out of the ordinary to make the most of the extra long weekend.

Often we plan a weekend away – I love to explore new places across the UK – but with exploration, there is always the challenge of balance. How do we find somewhere where the views are stunning, where the walks are interesting yet short and accessible, and where there are excellent places to eat without it being too busy or too expensive. Yes, we’re a difficult pair to please… and yet Dorset managed it perfectly.

We spent two days on the South Coast; one day at Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door, and one day at The Matravers, Dancing Ledge and Swanage. Firstly, what excellent place names. Secondly, look at this coastline.

If you’ve not been to the South West of England and explored the Jurassic Coast, you are missing out. It’s beautiful, it’s interesting, and there are cream teas a-plenty. But weekend trips away aren’t quite as easy as they seem, especially when it comes to balancing curiosity and chronic pain.
