The struggles of fibromyalgia.  I have been able to creatively structure my life to get necessary things done.  I have been able to structure my work to get certain parts done.  That has been going on for a long time.  It feels like all of a sudden I could not do my job.

I mean I know I have been gradually doing less and less.  Up until June 2014 of last year I could pull it together and do whatever I needed to do.  It was a shock in March 2015 when I realized that was over.  I could not do a certain things that I had to do and I could not hide it.

I started hiring someone to help me occasionally and renting a manual chair.  I still do the vast majority of my job.  I love helping families.  I just need to and want to help them in a larger of variety of ways.  That was when I decided one of the things that would help was to get a scooter.

Well now I plan to get a wheelchair for reasons I mentioned in a blog before this one.  I am just surprised that in 9 short months I went from feeling ok about what I could do to sheer panic.   My friend told me it was not as quick as I feel.  On the one hand I know she is right but on the other the transition from ok to now ok still felt abrupt and quick.
