Fibromyalgia Awareness Day 2012

Today is Fibromyalgia Awareness Day 2012 – wear purple in support.  This is not something that I am excited to do, looking forward to, wanting to do all of my life….. but it is a day to say I AM ONE OF MANY THAT HAVE FIBROMYALGIA AND WE NEED A CURE!  Fibro not only takes over your life, but it takes over the lives of your family and close friends.  It is something that has been difficult for me and my doctors to help me get much relief from the pain, fatigue, and many other symptoms.  It took from me precious time with my family, it took my career, it took half of our family’s income, it took my health, it took my total independence, it took a lot of my happiness at times….. but it is not who I am, it is an illness that I have and I try each day to take back more of my own life.  I am spending today with my husband and 3 boys and I intend to enjoy the entire day and try to live life to the fullest!!

I wish for you today a low pain day and extra energy!

  1. I was just diagnosed with fibromyalgia on Friday. I don’t think people realize just how bad it makes you feel. It has been so bad for me lately that I can barely finish folding a load of laundry – so not like me. I wish you luck with your treatment and hope you find some relief soon.

      Thanks for your comments. So sorry that you have fibromyalgia. It is an ugly disease that can take your zeal for life. I continue to fight and hope that you will continue to fight along with me. You can only take one day at a time.

I would love for you to comment. What do you think?
