Taking things as they come, one day at a time... and knowing that I'm not alone... You're with us now, and that counts for a lot!
Welcome home... 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
I was just talking to my doctor about having fibro. When I'm not flaring, I think it is gone. Then it flares and I have to realize that I do have fibro. I forget the pain when it is at a fairly low level. When it is low (it is always there at least a little), I can think that it is just getting older. But the flares are something different.
Try not to get discouraged when you flare. Hopefully your flare will be short and you can go back to wondering if you really have it.
I am new to this team.. actually I have been a member before. and I am back. I think I live in some of denial hoping I really don't have the disease. when my symptoms flare.. my Dr. reminds me that I do. look forward to sharing with the team
