I think you'll love it here once you actually get into it... I think I'M addicted to SP! LOL
It's the best "addiction" I can imagine, it helped save my kidneys at one point, and has offered me multiple tools and friendships that have been real life-savers in more ways than one...
Welcome aboard! Kathy
"The real secret of success is enthusiasm..." thanks, Walter P. Chrysler. I believe it. That's what I want in my life--to give my imagination a chance, to live with energy and enthusiasm! P.S. I looked up enthusiasm, and it says the root words mean God within... interesting...!
Ralph Waldo Emerson said 'Life belongs to the energetic.' But you don't have to be frenetic and hyper--some energy is quiet and steady, like a heartbeat... and that works too! LOL
There is a lot of support and a lot of fun here. Getting others to understand fibro. is hard. Taking care of your self is important.. Take your time with exersice and know when you need to stop. Tomorrow may be a better day.
I joined SP two years ago but didn't get very far; I wasn't motivated enough. Now I am. I've just joined the gym around the corner and I know I have to take it very easy lest my fibro fatigue overwhelm me. My pain isn't too much of an issue right now, but I know I have to be very careful about that.
It's hard to find people who understand what it is like to always be tired, always have pain. I've come a long way in terms of managing my mental health; now I have to manage my physical health.
