Yesterday, my hips and legs felt a bit better. I was able to walk with my walker. By saying I "felt better," doesn't mean that I'm cured! Ok? It means just that...a bit better. With all of this rain we've been getting, seems to be making me hurt a little worse. Something like when it gets too cold. I don't have arthritis, so I have no idea as to why this happens. I'm still learning. I'd like to thank all of the people that gave me positive feedback from my last entry. I feel so bad that they have been going through the same thing as I am. I know how it feels. It's like when you're going to get married and you're told that you'll lose most of your friends.....you end up with a disease that isn't curable...and you lose the rest of them! Why? Like I've said, I haven't changed. I'm just a person that looks "ok" on the out side, and is in pain on the in side....thats all. I'm a person thats on a mission to find all the information that I can about fibromyalgia. Anything wrong with that? You'd think that the people in your life would want to do the same. But...in the same breath, you dare say anything about you, or about how you are feeling...they're down your throat with...."I know how you feel!" Ya' think?! Give me a break! Or, you're whinning! But...talk about where you've went, what you've baught, or what you've gotten...then it's a great conversation for them! It sucks! How about....doing what you've said you would do to help us out, or, ask if there is anything you can do to help us?! Hmmm. I've asked that question...."Is there anything that I can do to help you?" And then DO IT! I've always thought that you were always suppose to treat others the same way that YOU would like to be treated. I guess some people don't see it that way. But...I'm not changing that thought...I'm still going to treat others the way I would like to be treated....then maybe it might give them something to think about. Or not!
