I think it takes more energy to keep all my emotions bottled up than to release
them. A good cry is sometimes needed.
I'm open and honest with my husband and have expressed my feelings and fears.
It is OK to tell others if you are having a bad day. There is a differance between
dwelling on how bad you are feeling and discussing it. If you do feel hoplessness
telling your doctor is important.
Learning to cope is easier if I'm active in doing what I can do to help myself.
It is up to me to establish my new "normal." I know there are many activities I can
no longer do, so I had to find new activities to replace them.
Still taking one day at a time.
Tomorrow will be one year that I've been here.
Thank you my fibro family for all the caring support you have given me!
