Aw, Joy, I'm sorry. I posted about Robin' s passing in our moderator forum and mentioned that I knew she posted in this forum and possibly other forums too since she had so many illnesses, but I guess the lupus mods missed it. I should have posted here, also. Robin certainly deserved that mention.
For those who didn't remember Robin, she was one of the most positive spirits I have ever encountered. We loved her a lot in fibro and no matter what was thrown her way, she accepted it and tried so hard to get better while having the most positive attitude. She would joke about some of the changes in her life and she also wrote wonderful poetry. She is sorely missed. Below is one of her poems.
At the end of the day, I am still me
I choose who I am, who I want to be
I choose to be happy, caring and kind
I want to be strong, both in body and mind
I pray with God's help, these things I will find
Even if my body isn't strong physically
At the end of the day, I know I'm still me
Whatever life chooses to send
I'm blessed to have my fibro friends
