How do you cope with bad days when you have autoimmune disorders? How do you know when to push or when to stop? I have JIA/JRA. I’ve had it since I was 9 months old and I still don’t know these answers. I was able to squat for the first time 5 years ago. I’m 31 now. I have days where I’m so tired that I skip workouts and then the inactivity breeds more inactivity. Then my joints get worse from not moving. How do you balance this? How do you not feel guilty? I lose weight then I gain a little back but I’ll lose it again. Is it the way you look at exercise that helps?
