Life is short. Life is beautiful. Life is hard. And unfortunately for people with Fibromyalgia, life is painful.
I’ve always tried to embrace life and remain positive in spite of hard times. Since my diagnosis, I refuse to change my attitude. This is something I struggle with daily. Please don’t think I’m some unrealistic Mary Sunshine. I fight the same demons as you do and most days, I conquer them. Never give up.
I find the concept of being a Fibromyalgia Sufferer very depressing. Am I suffering? Yes. But by referring to myself as a sufferer takes away my power and gives Fibromyalgia the upper hand. I want to be in control of my life! I refuse to call myself a Fibromyalgia Sufferer. I am a FIBROMYALGIA WARRIOR! Join me. Reclaim your power.
I love color and nature and try to incorporate it into every day of my life. Throughout my site, I’m including pictures of my garden from my previous house (that I miss immensely) and pictures from my various adventures for you to enjoy with me.
Take in as much beauty as you can. Smell the flowers or find what makes you happy and smell that! It makes everything easier.
