The past doesn't matter any more, it's done and can't be changed. The hardest lesson I struggle with is leaving it behind... LOL

...and there are two things about having fibromyalgia etc etc that I actually LIKE... 1) I have had to learn to slow down, so I don't miss the little things in life like I was before, and 2) I don't take ANYTHING for granted any more! LOL

Welcome to the team!

"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!

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

Life comes in specific increments, which we receive as a gift of one moment at a time. That's why it's called

Welcome! emoticon I have been there and done that. It just takes some of us a little longer. I stopped counting the times I start over, it is important to keep trying.

Welcome to the team. I understand a lot of what you went through. I think others here have also gone through a lot of the same things. Consider those muffins your reward for starting a new process to get yourself healthier.

emoticon TWO white chocolate chip crumb muffins for the first thing of the day!!!!

Glad to find this forum on Fibro within the Spark environment. Too much time already was spent split between Fibro support and logging here and other things.

Looking forward to restarting with a more wholistic (disease tempered nutrition for loss) approach.

I am /WAS an organic gardener, DIY type, Wildlife lover, hunter for food, Birdwatcher and Teacher and wife/mother.

Now am a modified (for physiccal abilities) organic gardener, wildlife lover, window/yard birdwatcher. I can no longer teach or do the physical DIY or heavy gardening I used to. House cleaning is a pain (litterally). I am no longer a wife (too "decrepid" for him so he put attention elsewhere and kicked me out) and live alone. Kids all have kids.... 5.5 hours away.

Enough negative.... I like life alone. But financial since I can't work mandates doing without some things. NO TV, or cable etc. But can still take my cane and walking staffs to roam in my woodland/wetland. No matter there isn't a bathroom!!! lol The cushiony peat is so much easier to walk on for my feet and spine, and the fallen trees always give a place to stop and sit. No hard shock of city pavement.

Anyway I am going to try and be more dilegent in caring for myself. Hopefully I can help you and you can help me. Ready? Set? Let us get GOING!

That which I Will to happen in truth, I will put action behind to achieve and the Lord will help me if I ask IN BELIEF!
