Thank you, Free Spirit. You stated that very plainly and correctly! We are here because of this lousy illness and we can learn ways to help make our lives better...simple tricks and even some supplements.
I came to HealingWell nearly six years ago because of an unrelenting flare. I had had fibro for 17 years at that time and had never experienced an extremely long flare so I wanted to see if that was possible and maybe what was happening to me. It felt wonderful knowing I wasn't alone with this illness so I stuck around offering suggestions that had helped me with fibro and eventually was asked to be a mod.
I keep trying to help all of you...and even you lurkers! You really can have a good life in spite of this illness. I have and I will keep encouraging all of you to keep moving and enjoy each day to the fullest. You will be far happier that way.
Thanks, again, Free Spirit. It definitely is time to move on.
God does not give us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind. 2 Timothy 1:7
