I had a bit of a revelation this morning. FM is causing me to apologize for everything! For small things, like forgetting something, or not being able to do something with friends or family. But it has gotten to the point after several years of being very sick most of the time, that I find myself being apologetic for my life! It is just crazy. I didn't ask to get sick. I don't 'deserve' this... I was a good wife, mother, friend, employee, daughter...etc. for 49years. Then I was dx'd with Fibromyalgia... Everything has gotten harder for me. But why am I continually feeling like I must apologize for being 'inconvenient' to have around??? I got sick. I got sick with a debilitating, life altering, incurable, illness. It is not my fault. If anything...maybe someone should be saying 'I am sorry you are sick' to me. And wouldn't it be great to hear.. 'what can I do for you today' 'what can I do to help you today' "I feel so badly for you that you are always sick' "It must be so hard on you to be sick every day' "WHAT CAN I DO FOR YOU" What do you think...do you apologize for being on the planet with this illness???
