Depression is a perfectly natural response to any chronic disease diagnosis... and though it isn't easy to live with, at least fibromyalgia won't kill us. If you take a quick look at my SparkPage, you'll see that fibromyalgia is only one of a host of medical issues, a couple of them actually life-threatening.
There is so much more to me than my illnesses... so even with the pain, and all the things I have to do each day to survive, I see every day as a gift--life is GOOD! AND, I try to make the most out of each one, since I'm not thrilled with the alternative... LOL
You CAN get through this.
And you're not alone any more, you're HERE.
"The real secret of success is enthusiasm..." Walter P. Chrysler said it, I believe it. That's what I want in my life--to give my imagination a chance, to live with energy and enthusiasm!
Ralph Waldo Emerson said 'Life belongs to the energetic.' But you don't have to be frenetic and hyper--some energy is quiet and steadfast... and that works too! LOL
Life comes in specific increments, which we receive as a gift of one moment at a time. That's why it's called the PRESENT!
