'It is for us to pray not for tasks equal to our powers, but for powers equal to our tasks, to go forward with a great desire forever beating at the door of our hearts as we travel toward our distant goal.~Helen Keller
Shell posted this on the Fibro Friends forum. She got this from the fibromyalgia network. This is a good explanation so I thought I would share this with you.

F is for the Finding we always have to do; we've found our keys again, but now where is my shoe? I is for the Impact on our family and friends; we're so grateful to them for a love that never ends. B if for Breaks, we must take a lot each day; it's hard for us to work or watch our children play. R is for the Restless sleep that plagues us every night; we toss, we turn, we hurt, we twitch and never lay just right. O is for the Occupation the we may have had and lost; or fear we'll never get to try because of fibro fog. M is for the Memory we all so desperately miss;we didn't mean to miss your party, our memories, it slipped. Y is for the Yelling the pain makes us want to do; but we can't, we must compose, it's not likely that we're two. A is for the Apathy that we all know too well; our favorite hobbies don't amuse us, the equipment we should sell. L is for our Lives, the quality is diminished; we can't do what we once did, so many things unfinished. G is "Gazillion" pills that we hate to take; they cost a lot, they make us sick our pain doesn't even break. I is for the Ignorance that people, even doctors, show; our illness is invisible, the symptoms come and go. A is for the Anger that we no longer feel; we're taking back our lives from an illness that is real!!
