Hello Watashi, and other sleepless fibromites! I enjoyed all of your posts.
The war correspondent's words are so truthful - I know that I have a whole bunch of new troubles with my fibro, but I am coming to understand that I have a power to manage them that I didn't know I had before. I am now starting to make better choices, choices which I probably could have started making years ago such as being deliberate in my exercise, being deliberate in the foods I eat and trying to make sure that everything that goes in has something beneficial about it, and wondering if there is something beneath all the pain that I am not "getting" yet. These troubles are definitely lessons that fibro has caused me to examine, so I am (in a very strange way!) grateful to have been given this opportunity to change for the better.
That said... I tend to get the blues if I am tired and can't sleep so, like tonight, I'm using this time to menu plan, write grocery lists, and look for healthy supplements online. When I wake up in the morning I will feel productive and one step ahead of the game, even tho my house is still messy!
