jnbdavies - December 14

This page runs very slow, lol.
today when i saw my rhuem (whom I see every 3 months) i told him about my pain and he asked me "DO YOU ACCEPT YOU HAVE FIBROMYALGIA?" I set back and thought I am trying to tell him whats wrong and he is being condicending. That was until he explained his question, he said once I accept I am living with this horrible stuff I will be able to manage the pain better. I didnt get it in the office, but as soon as I got home and told my husband, I then realized he cant help me without me helping myself first. IM GOING TO FIGHT THIS...I MAYNOT WIN, BUT THE WORLD WILL KNOW FIBRO IS REAL AND WE ARE PROUD OF OUR PURPLE AWARENESS RIBBON.

BRAVO....BRAVO.... Well said jnbdavies...Well said. you are right we have to accept this first and foremost and then we can start dealing with this. I never really thought about it that way but you are right.When I was little I used to like purple because of Prince. (lol) now i have something more meaningfull and personal. We can all get through this together. Bravo

Amen to that! The sooner you get on board, the sooner you can get on with your life. Thanks for sharing this very important point with all of us.

I absolutely agree with you! I've been saying for a long time now that we need to quit fighting against this disease and learn how to live WITH it!

I spent the first 1 1/2 years after being diagnosed (and all the MANY years before) fighting this every step of the way....I thought I could control it and win....I was SO WRONG!

I finally realized I was only hurting myself more (mentally and physically) and now I'm learning how to live with this illness and take each problem as it comes. I'm pretty sure this will always be a "learning process"...when your symptoms are constantly changing and new things are coming up all the time...we are constantly learning to deal with the changes.

as Fantod said....Thank You for pointing this out to all of us! Stacey :o)

I salute, to the many of us who have fibro. I have no cure, just simple solution to some of our problems. I have finally learned, that no matter what fibro will let you know either way when you go too far. I join the gang.
