I realize for those of you meeting me here for the first time, your initial impression might be that I’m a complainer or ungrateful. I am not.
I am thankful every single day for the many blessings I have in my life. In spite of every little task taking so much effort, I am grateful that my health is not worse.
I am lucky. I have my daughters, my husband, my family, my friends, my home, my dog etc etc etc! I don’t have to face this alone.
That is one of the reasons that I started this blog. So that anyone out there facing this obstacle called Fibromyalgia doesn’t have to do so alone. I hope that by sharing my inner most thoughts and feelings others will have a place to do the same. That, at the very least they will know they are not the only one. A question I have asked myself quite a few times throughout this last year.
Don’t get me wrong, this blog isn’t exactly some selfless act. It is, or at least what I’m hoping will be an important part of my healing process. My first big step toward acceptance, I mean really accepting that I have Fibromyalgia. That in spite of there being no cure, I can heal spiritually and mentally. I can improve physically and I am trying to embrace the new direction my life has taken.
People who know me beyond my words here understand how important control is to me. They know having a weakness (any weakness) is incredibly difficult for me to accept. That I pride myself on always setting the bar beyond what might be considered attainable heights.
This blog FibroFog.ca is a place where I will share my journey as I take back control of my life. I’m taking you along for the ride as I learn how to accept certain limitations without lowering my personal expectations.
I hope to make new friends along the way, and I hope others will share their own experiences while learning to LIVE with Fibromyalgia.
