Hi Lendi: I like your saying you're a "1/2 glass full kind of girl." That's a good thing!
It can be hard to see anything positive about
fibro, but yes, even when I get a terrible flare, I try to remember there are people worse off than me in many ways. I'm also thankful for my fibro "tools" (meds, my "bed buddy," heating pad, microwave to heat "bed buddies," healthy food and supplements, etc.).
It's so easy to dismiss all of these when we hurt, and sometimes I forget, but I still try to be thankful.
ETA: Goodness--I'd better not forget to add that I'm also thankful for this forum and all the good, compassionate, and helpful people here!
