                                                                                       FIBROMITE'S SERENITY PRAYER
 
God grant me the courage to get up and move, ignoring my stiff, sore body and cloudy mind, and to try to decide which of the twenty things I was doing when the pain made me stop is the one I most want to do now; the serenity to refrain from holding and moving any objects which feel the slightest bit heavy, although they may not have yesterday; the foresight to decide exactly where I would like these objects moved the next time an able-bodied person is in the house, and to write this down; and the wisdom to laugh instead of despair at my absurd predicament.

Well, I'm glad you guys got a kick out of it! I did feel better after I wrote it because I was having one of THOSE days (where everything you start to do you have to back up on) and feeling sorry for myself. It stopped my down mood from overtaking my day.

Better to laugh than to cry, and who cares that family/friends/neighbors/strangers think I'm a complete loon for laughing at absolutely nothing?
