life is hard

Saturday, June 15, 2013

Lost my dad, the house and now work has cut my hours so that i can hardly afford to eat. Fibramyalgia has flared up and with it came the depression. Life is hard it is not always an easy road.
But this blog is not to cry and whine about my troubles it is to remind myself that i have many blessings, many of them. though hard times make it hard to remember.

I have a job, many people in the world do not have that much.

I have people in my life that love me, my boyfriend has taken care of my gas needs, and sometimes brings over food that he thinks i may need. My daughter has allowed me to move in with her and her boyfriend. My sister who lives a long way from here calls me regular to say hi and cheer me up. Life is good My live has ups and downs just like everyone in the world. I try to remember that with out the downs in life, the ups would not be so nice.

I have clothes to wear

and though my body isn't always my best friend, I am basically healthy, my heart beats freely, i can breath with out strain and i am free to exercise when i am able( not as much as i would like but enough to keep myself moving.

I have much less than many people in the world, but then i have much more than some. I am lucky I have more blessings in my life the important stuff. I just need to stop and remember when things are going ruff.

    Hi, just saw this on the fit bit team page. Glad you have a support system. Keep moving when you can. There may be some great benefits to certain diet/ lifestyle interventions, too... do you get enough omega-3? (Fish or flax/hemp oils- cheap source is kippered herring if you can stand it! I love the stuff) and other good fat (avocado, coconut, olive...) and vitamin D? (Sun exposure without spf at least 15 mins/day or supplementation?) Do you have exercise you find fun? (Dance? Walk in nature?) - All of these can help symptoms of fibro. I hope finances improve so you can stress less, and that you feel better!

    Hi BAROSS. I'm new to this site and haven't even posted a blog yet, but happened across your blog. I'm so sorry you are struggling right now. I want you to know I've already prayed for you: For your health, finances and for the loss you've suffered. I hope that means something to you and you will know that you are not alone. Take care emoticon
