Fibro is a part of who we are now and learning to live with it is the tricky part. When
we accept the fact that Fibro isn't going anywhere we eventually learn to live with it.
We can have a good life but we have to believe we can. Psyching ourselves up takes
practice. There are days I find myself in tears wondering why me. I'm sure you all can
relate. If I interrupt my negative thoughts and replace it with something positive like,
I am going to make the best of my life as I can because it's the only one I got, it is
easier for me to stop obsessing on how awful it is. Somedays I really obsess.
There is also a need to grieve the loss of your good health. I went through a mourning
process and I still grieve sometimes and I believe it is good not to keep all the emotions
all bottled up. Finding the positives through the negative is difficult when we are feeling
pain emotionally and physically. It does take practice and the support of others, that
is why this forum is so valuable.
You all have been a source of inspiration for me and have helped me become a stronger
individual. My hopes for the coming year is that my fibro family has the best life possible.
Happy New Year and gentle hugs to all
