"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 steady, like a heartbeat... and that works too! LOL

It's interesting how everyone is now saying the same things we've been telling each other on this forum for the last four or five years! LOL

This is a Dr.Oz moment... but some good basic ideas, sort of reiterates what we all know already or are learning...

I have sleep apnea, and insomnia sometimes. Although I am in agreement that it does not cause fibro, but when you have both, it definitely makes your symptoms worse.

Well, here's a great site to start with. It has many links to explore. I hope you find your answer.

Treating and Beating Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, by Dr Rodger Murphree. Awesome detail! drrodgermurphree.com/treating-and-beating-
fib/


The greatest love story is your own.
If you miss out of life to the fullest; they win.
You are the happiness master of your own mind.
Thought is an active dynamic energy to harmonize and corrolate good.
Clear all paths to love thru forgiveness.
I may not recognize the significance until some time later.
Is my resistance to change really that strong?
Impatience does not provide the time to learn the lesson;
Awaken new ways to approach the dissolving of a problem;
