While not really about fibromyalgia, it still speaks to those who have illnesses & so called limitations. You should never give up hope, no matter how bleak it seems. You'll see a pic in this story, at the top to the left, of a woman standing over a man. That's an actual clip to the news story so you can see this man's transformation & how dance is helping children with Cerebral Palsy. It's an amazing story. I thought I'd share it. (saw it on a fitness board I belong to)

Thank you for this. I so needed this today and it did me a world of good. We must never give up hope even when it can be so very difficult. I find music to be the most amazing help for my mood and it gets me "moving" even when I hurt.

Great story!!! Nice to meet you.

Thanks so much for this post - I was given this website some months ago, but I was apprehensive about joining. What a gift for me today. I have struggled for some time mostly in silence and depressed. I am now excited and looking forward to listening and learning beyond the pain and sadness.

Again Thanks for taking the time to share

WOW, you do have great timing!!! This morning I was totally overwhelmed with all that has to be done to go to my cousin's funeral and told my DH it would be so much easier on me if we didn't go. Then this little voice popped into my head that said, "I fought cancer til my last breath and your letting fibromyalgia stop you from going to my funeral"??? I felt ashamed for even thinking about not going. I womaned up got the house presentable for son and DIL to spend the night tomorrow night to take care of the dogs, which I so appreciate them doing for us. It is far from spotless and DH will have to do somethings I didn't want to push myself to do that I would pay for. We had freezing rain this morning and it's in the forecast for tomorrow here and in Chicago but I am going unless it gets major.
I am giving myself a break by going tomorrow afternoon instead of waiting til Fri morning so I can be rested and ready for a busy day Fri.
The older I get the more amazed I am by the human spirit and what we really have in us if we want it bad enough and we have people like this young man to inspire us.
Dancing Dragon, welcome to the family!!!
luv and hugs

Yeah, I'm in Peoria, IL & we have sheets of ice everywhere. I drove out in it this morning to go watch my nephew while my mom went to get my sister & her new baby from the hospital. Then, I came back home a few hours later. My front porch door has one big long sheet of ice on it. It's slippery as heck out there !
