What I Want to Do:

My Page Billboard

     I am disabled with fibromyalgia, herniated discs (C3/4 & L1/2), sciatica right side/leg, chronic bursitis right hip, arthritis, osteoporosis, memory loss, fogginess, word search problems, extremity weakness, numbness and tingling, back and neck, shoulder muscle spasms and nerve damage in right arm, bilateral legs. I am looking at possibly having to have surgery (back and neck) within the next year (2013).
     My goal is to be able to continue being able to walk most of the time and I exercise 4-5 times a week to try to maintain my strength. I also watch what I eat and exercise to keep my weight down so that I can keep the pain down.
     My family, which includes my children, husband, parents and family-in-laws are my rock. They help keep me going by believing in me and trying to help me in anyway.
     When you suffer with fibromyalgia, a lot of people look at you as if you are faking or it isn't as bad as you say. I do try to educate people like this instead of just letting them keep believing that fibro. isn't that bad..Although some people have it worse than others. Unfortunitely mine is severe and progressive.
     I try to live as normal a life as I can, although the pain fights against me. Not only do I have a good support network, I also have God. He has answered many prayers and made it easier to live with this painful disease.
     I would love to connect with more people online who suffer from fibromyalia. I feel a good support group can help those of us with fibro. get through the hard times.
     I have lost a lot because of this painful disease, but at least I haven't lost those who I love and care for. If you want to befriend me or connect with me, feel free to either email me or send me a friend request...I would love to hear from you.
