I was just sitting here when I realized...hey, I'm not really having any pain right at this moment! Then I kinda just sit back and really appreciate the feeling while in the back of my mind wondering how long it will last. It never lasts long maybe five or ten minutes but I get a glimpse of what my life used to be like and it makes me happy :) Does anyone else experience these brief reprieves from their pain?

No one is in charge of your happiness but you.
Don't take yourself so seriously, no one else does.
What other people think of you is none of your business.
Life isn't fair, but it's still good.

Yes, and they are wonderful. Who would have thought we'd end up this way? If anyone had told me when I was young that by age 35, I wouldn't be able to carry my toddler around or load my own groceries, I would've said they were nuts!

But your point is well taken. We do need to savor the good times, no matter how short they are.

I actually had a few days where I had way less pain and posted on it a few weeks ago.  Someone had posted back that it's so weird when you do get those moments/days with less pain that it's almost like something is missing and you have to check yourself.  And that is so true. It's great to have those moments though.

yes I get those moments and when I do I am thinking in the back of my mind-----maybe they made a mistake, it's not fibro after all.   Then something starts hurting

Hey Denise, I do the exact same thing. If I have a good day I right away think, Hey maybe I really don't have fibro! Then pain rears it's ugly head again. I am trying to change my way of thinking and take the good days for what they are, good days, and be thankful I still have a few.
