I have a lot of things rambling through my mind at any given time. Today, I am pondering my life with Fibromyalgia. Since I was diagnosed October 2011, I have learned several things. 1st, I’ve had it for at least 10 years and didn’t know it. It’s a progressively debilitating disease. Like any other chronic disease it robs you of small parts of yourself a little at a time. I am a mere echo of my former self. My mind is the same, but my body feels like it is coming apart at the seams most of the time. I choose to dwell on the things I am still able to do, as opposed to the things I can no longer do. I try to maintain a positive outlook on all things.
I want to encourage, inspire and occasionally sound off on issues that impress me as ridiculous. Whatever you are, be that honestly. Don’t let the forum of public opinion force you into a false interpretation of yourself. You are free to be who you are. Do not allow other peoples opinions to be more important to you than yours. You have a gift called life. Live it and know that you are free.
