So, I just have to say that I am having a really good day. I think that the mood I wake up in, really affects how I will view the rest of my day. SO, I know I might hurt tomorrow, but, I HAVE AN INDOOR SOCCER GAME TONIGHT!!! I haven't played for years...I had leg surgery about 4 years ago or something (i lost count) and didn't really touch a ball much after. I have coached for a few years, but that just didn't do it for me. I am writing for a few reasons, I want to know if anyone else has ever just been able to have that ONE outlet and they have no worries in the world and everything is better because it is in their life. I hope I am making sense. I feel like I am rambling because I am so happy. I made sure not to over do it yesterday, and I know I might hurt tomorrow, but it is going to be so worth it because of the way it makes me feel on the inside. Fibro can't take this away from me!!! turn
 
OH, and the other thing was to say that I found a DVD at Barnes and Noble the other night for about $30 bucks on Fibromyalgia. It was in the yoga/fitness section and it is sponsored or made by the Mayo Clinic. I have watched most of the intro and it is really cool. It is also supposed to have some stretching and light yoga on there as well as talk about nutrition and your condition. It also came with a little booklet. I haven't taken a look at it, but I just wanted to get the word out. I am an opinion leader by nature and want everyone to reap the same benefits that i am!! i also got the biggest loser yoga and liked it.
 
So, another reason I am having a great day...the sun is shining and 30 degrees feels like 50 degrees. It sort of feels like spring. It is nice and makes me happy.
 
Just wanted to share. Hope this finds you all pain free and happy!!! And just think...tomorrow is Friday!!!

OH! I LOVE Barnes and Noble, my fave store by far! That DVD definately sounds worth checking out.. there is a Fibro book there actually I've been wanting to get (it's just Fibromyalgia For Dummies, hehe I'M the DUMMIE blush tongue ) I've been spending my money very wisely though since I am not working.
 
And my outlet is definately writing, poems, it always has been!! It is one thing nothing, especially Fibro, can ever take away from me (no matter how I get "writer's block" sometimes, cramps in my hands, and Fibro Fog terribly rolleyes -I still manage to write my poems!!!!!) I'm so glad soccor does that for you.. and that is so physical which is great!!!!! Just don't over-do anything nono LOL! SO happy you are having a wonderful day, mine was pretty decent as well, just waiting now for the hubby to get home from the office! And the sun outside makes all the difference in the world, eh? scool smilewinkgrin
 
Hooray for a good day! Hope tomorrow brings you joy as well, Aimee!

OH JENNA!!! i have fallen in love with barnes and noble over the past year or so. we only had a borders around my area until just a year or so ago and it has totally turned me on to reading. ((cough, cough)) well, more than ever before. I bought a good fibro book there-Fibromyalgia: a comprehensive approach. I am making my hubby read it now. BUT, i wanted to say that I bought the Gluten free diet for dummies. i think it is great!! i love that series or line or whatever because of how easy it is to read. well...it should be based on title, right? tongue

oh i am jealous, i can't write to save my life. I mean, i write letters to people and am a very good written communicator, but poems and NON life stories are not my strong suite. I have always admired those who enjoy that. As a matter of fact, my best friend is an English Teacher...I work in finance. Lol. Anyway, I think its mainly because i have always played sports and was VERY active as child/teen. I mean, i even played soccer in college. So, for some reason the whole reading and writing thing never clicked.

Rich-I am so happy that i could pass on some of my happiness. I love having those productive days like you've had. That makes the tired a little worth it. It's the days where i didnt DO anything to get tired that bothers me. you know? I hope that everything works out with the short term disabilty stuff. I have only had to do it a few time for some surgeries, but I know it can get hairy. So, best of luck with that!!

Well, I am off to do this. I am actually a little nervous. I am not kidding, I don't think I have stepped on the field (turf...whatever wink ) for 2-3 years. I am excited...but I just don't want to hurt too bad tomorrow...oh and I have to remember that i am not invincible anymore.

Here's to a pain free night for all!! Wish me luck!! smilewinkgrin

I swim everyday, write, attend graduate school, mother my children and read a lot.

I do not do housework so I get to have fun.

One of my sons comes over and cleans our home for me now. If he shows up once per month I am happy. My daughter basically does the rest.

When I list the things I do and my outlets, I am surprised. It is a lot. I leave home every single day unless I am sick with a cold or something. I see friends daily and char with quite a few people on a regular basis.

I have breakfast with a few friends on sunday morning and lunch with some others a couple of times per month.

Wow, thanks for starting this thread.
