Six Months, how could it be?

It's been over six months since I've posted.  Where does time go?  My wonderful Mom became ill in September and passed away in January.  I was busy with her most days which caused fatigue and stress and didn't leave many creative juices left.  I miss her a lot but life does go on.

That's the way with Fibro, it goes on and on and on.  We can become passive and let it take us over or we can become reactive and research all the things we can do to help lessen the pain and do them. 

The other day I picked up and carried 3 bags of potting soil....  I knew better but I did it.  My back has been hurting ever since.... whose fault was this?  Mine.  We have to listen to our bodies, we have to remember the things that caused us to flare and not do them again. 

We only have one trip on this earth, we need to help ourselves make it a good trip in spite of Fibromyalgia.   What can I do to make my days more productive in a pain free way.  What can you do for your self?   If it is to be, it's up to me.  We all know that phrase....  we need to listen to it and act upon it.

I'm so sorry for the loss of your mother, sending you a (((((BIG HUG))))) and yes the fibro does go on and on and on, I agree though we must be persistant in trying to help ourselves, I've seen many folks give in to the pain and they get worse, even bedridden and I refuse to go that route:)
