Fibromyalgia Awareness Day

I don't have anything brilliant to share to make you understand FMS. I'm still trying to come to a full understanding of it myself. I think I'm finally in the grieving stage after struggling with this diagnosis for over a year now. It's not a fun stage. I'm missing the old me and all that I used to be able to accomplish, plan to do, do for my family, think, etc. I'm feeling lost and having a time coming to terms with who I am now and what I am good for. I waffle between frustration, depression and sometimes slip into denial. Denial isn't a smart move because than I push myself too hard and pay for it for days.

I was I had the solution to living my best life in spite of this torment. I'm not there yet. I hope I will get there. I hope I will find the right combination of alternative therapies to cope with the challenges that FMS brings to my life. Meantime I'm doing the best I can......


  1. I found your blog from a comment you left on Kate's blog. I also have Fibro....I also have a Fibro blog. I look forward to seeing what you have written.

  2. I found you through Kate's blog too. I wanted you to know I appreciate what you said here. I deeply struggle with wanting to be positive about it, but really have a hard time getting there. I'm glad to have found you!

  3. It's not easy to be strong all the time, but I think in the hardest moments of our lives and sometimes the darkest is where we find our strength.

    I hope that you can find it, there are still days where I feel like I've lost it. And then with the help of the people around me I somehow I find it again.

    I wish you the best of luck in your journey. Sometimes the smallest hand is all we need in life. I've been lucky enough to have a few good people get me through my darkest and hardest moments. WIthout them, I don't think I would still be here, breathing.
