It's strange that two of my son's have problems with pain. Neither one of them have been diagnosed with fibromyalgia...yet. The oldest one has small lumps about the size of my thumb. There are maybe 14 of them in various places on his body. He's only 32 years old. Anyway the doctor originally and still thinks that they are lymph nodes. I'm trying to get my son to get his teeth fixed. That is one of the first things the doctor that diagnosed me told me to do. Of course my son doesn't believe me. I tried to tell him how bad my lymph nodes were at the beginning. It's better now. I guess because I don't push so hard. I get more rest and eat healthier food. I also use a variety of non-medication techniques for the pain. Hopefully he will get it before long.

Fibromyalgia Pain

I sit here and try to think about what to write about. All I can think of for the past several weeks is all the times that I am in pain. I was at a training and the only thing I could think of the whole day was how much pain I was in. The only reason I didn't leave is that my employer had paid alot for me to be there. I learned that day around the pain. Another day I hurt I decided it was because of the weather. The only problem with that is that there is always weather coming or going. That struck me as funny that day. I laughed around the pain. Another day I had a meeting to go to. I didn't think I could walk that far. I told a co-worker I could go if she would come get me and drop me at the door. I wanted to go. She didn't want to bring me with her. I missed a meeting around the pain. And life goes on. I learn despite the pain. I laugh through some pain. I miss something because of pain. I guess that's just the way it goes. What do you do to get through it? I really want to know.
