Raising arms above your head

Raising arms above your head

I have read here that you shouldn.t raise your arms above your head, but no one said how far. Can I get dishes from the cupboard.?I am relatively new to PH and CHF, still learning all the ins and outs

You do what you can when you live alone. Bending over, lifting, lying down all cause exacerbation of symptoms. Avoid repetitive bending or lifting more than 10lbs are some of my restrictions-do I abide by that? No-there’s no one here but me but I do try.

If I don't I would never be able to get half of my dishes down out of my cupboards. HA! HA! HA! I would not recommend leaving them up for a very long time. All things in moderation would be good. Plan your activities so you don't get tired..

What a Beautiful Name! My question to you is only this......Does it bother you to get dishes from the cupboard? Can you raise your arms above your head without losing your breath? Then stop worrying about the simple stuff and focus on the HAPPY things you enjoy!
