It's a double edged sword, someday you feel fine and then overdo it and other days you can't get out of bed. I find that taking each day one at a time and trying not to overdo anything is best.

Moderate exercise such as walking or gardening works for me. Do the types of exercises that Grandma would do and you should be fine. Keep on your med schedule because taking things off schedule messes with how I feel more.

Good luck and stay tough.
