Someone asked me what I would tell someone newly diagnosed with Fibromyalgia. Here is what I came up with:
'You know how you are feeling right now? It gets better. At first being sick with Fibromyalgia is creepy and scarey. At first, before I knew what I had, I felt out of control. But it got better. I got better at managing the pain and the fibro fog.
I got better at hiding it when I felt really bad and had to go to work. I still hide the pain alot. I figured out other ways to get things done. You will too. I know you can do this.'
I hope and pray you take this to heart too!
