hi everyone,

well, i received my college grades today and i got a 4.00 in 4 out of 5 classes, and a 3.5 in my 5th class (darn algebra!!) for a total gpa of 3.833! considering how many times i literally had to DRAG myself to class, not to mention that !#$%@#$ fibro fog, i am very pleased with myself (and a little shocked lol) so today i am celebrating my small victory...

it feels good to have accomplished that-i think we fibromites especially need to look at our small victories and celebrate them, so any of you who'd like to share a small victory of your own-please do!!! this isn't just about me:)

thanks for reading..yeah

Congratulations Danniel,

This is a huge accomplishment. It is hard to concentrate with fibromyalgia, so I am sure you worked extra hard.

You do deserve a pat on the back and a great big (((hug))).

Yay You!!!!!   That is an admirable feat.  I am grading students' papers right now and the idea of the difficulties in earning an A is in the forefront of my mind.  It takes a lot of work and dedication.

thank you all so so much!!!! it means so much to me to be able to come here and have people appreciate my accomplishment and cheer along with me:)

i was really surprised, to be honest. i struggled so hard these past few months with fatigue and everything else that goes along with this dd, but i kept on keeping on and really pulled it out in the end!

i didn't do too much celebrating-just some *very gentle* happy dancing lol. also treated myself to a night off from cooking and ordered out! :)

now i get a month off and then back for another round-hopefully i can keep these kinds of grades up!

thank you again-you all are the BEST!
