ok we all hurt here right? and we all feel crappy? how many feel we have little to no control over their lives or lifestyles? i know i felt like that but fibro/me are just imposters on our lives. ok the saying keep your friends close and your enemys closer means basically we learn all about our enemy and then the saying knowledge is power? by learning about each different symptom and working on them one at a time, its got to be like shedding a mouldy blanket and taking back your life. im not talking about denouncing the fm or pretending it isnt there but im saying it can be a giant overwhelming parasite and so by taking out each of its heads one at a time will weaken it. so what if my one mammoth task this week was washing my nets and cleaning the windows i did it by pacing myself, if slow but sure the symptoms are weakened and still by pacing could we not still reach for the stars? maybe we would have to reach a bit slower but they are still there. its our life not 'its' and we should still live it and be in control.
