Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue Do not Define Me

There are many days that that the pain seems to be all I have.  This disease decides what I can do and how I can do it. That is all true but I am learning to pace myself. I am one of one million people who live with chronic pain. But I am also stronger than I ever imagined and I am Courageous.  I know I am not alone I have found The National Fibromyalgia and Chronic Pain Association and  I have a mission for our voices to be heard.Not just the pain filled cries but the hope and perserverance. Let courage define me.

    Having Fibro does not define my ability to do what I need to do… But it does say how long I take in doing my tasks. It takes twice as long to do the dishes, to do the cleaning but to pace myself is so good because I don’t want to be in bed every day of the week !
    We have to prioritise what our physical and emotional body can handle.
    For this I have found how to restrict myself from the heavy jobs and bring in reinforcements my son, my friends.
    It would be a life of isolation if I allowed for it to overtake the person I am.
