The medication.

Yesterday was kind of a hard day for me. I honestly hate having to take more medicines! Getting used to them is a very hard thing to do. :o( I was so dizzy and just felt "out of it," that I was constantly tripping when I walked. Not a good thing! Yes....I'm still having the pain, but I am going to give both medicines two weeks...thats it! I don't like the feeling of not being in control of my own body! I guess thats why I'm not a heavy drinker..lol Seriously...I don't think that I have to be on so many medicines. It doesn't make any since to me. I read in the newspaper last night, that a lady in this town also "had" fibromyalgia, and was talking about how massage therapy really works. And...thats how she got "rid" of hers! I had no idea that you can get "rid" of fibromyalgia. Plus....thats what my physical therapist does for me, is massage therapy! The lady must not have had a very bad case of fibromyalgia. She said that she only had problems going up stairs. So...I guess she didn't. A friend of mine sent me a very beautiful email this morning. :o) It really touched me. It was called the Pink Angel. It was so true! And thank you..by the way! :o) I'll wrap this thing up by saying this....Please stop and listen to friends and family that have fibromyalgia....they just might have something important to say....sometimes a complete stranger can be more of a friend/family member to you then your own.

You are most welcome. My step-mother sent me the Pink Angel and it really meant something to me. As a teacher, I always try to get my students to understand and accept the differences in all of us. Yet we are all the same inside. I once had a kindergarden girl in class that was born without a left hand and forearm. The others in her class were mean to her until they found out that she was the same as them. It was a great experience for all of us. She was with us until 4th grade...in that time, I taught her to jump rope (she turned the rope for herself with one end tied to her upper arm) and she actually did better push ups than the older boys did with two hands. (We set up mats so that she had a place to put her shorter arm, she had an elbow) She is now in high school and is the goalie on her soccer team! When she was younger and came for school with her prostethic arm, she would take it off and have me hold it cause she said that it just didn't work for her! Or as she got older, she would ask me if I needed another hand and laugh as she handed it to me! What a great attitude Moira had and has to this day. I ran into her recently and she told me that not having her lower arm and hand is not a problem. The only thing she ever said about it was whether she would be able to get married...I asked her why? She said because she has no wedding ring finger to put the wedding band on! That was maybe when she was in 1st or 2nd grade. She has a boyfriend now and they are talking of marriage....I am so happy for her!

Anyway, if everyone in the world was exactly the same, the world would be pretty boring!!!

And, Amen, to complete strangers being more of a friend/family member to you than your own....Sheri

Wow, Sheri....what a beautiful story! That gave me goosebumps! I agree...I'm glad I'm not like others, and very glad that the whole world isn't alike! Yes, it would be very boring! Thank you for sharing that with me....I am very proud of her for taking the world on....and winning! :o) Way to go! :o)
