    Ended up ill again put back on Prednisone sometimes I think I can feel my bones crumbling from all the steroids I have been prescribed over the last five years Anyway always trying to find a different way of managing my flare ups and so I am drawn to books that show people handling things in different ways SISUPronounced see suA Finnish concept that dates back to the 1950'sA unique type of fortitude of resilience of not giving up in the face of a challenge big or small that anyone can developSee I needed some or all of that and I quite enjoyed this book Much common sense but also some little things with big health benefits Cold water swimming for mental health and pain relief Well I don't live where that is a possibility I live near a river but not fond of river snakes soI tried a cold few minutes shower I am very suggestible and I think it helped a bit made me feel relaxed anyway Will try again Good tips on diet exercise just moving and much on a positive mental outlook I'll keep practicing can't hurt and may help
