Hello, My Friend,
I am so thankful that you asked how I was doing the other day. You see, on many days it’s hard for me to get out, and I really do appreciate your concern. Sometimes when people look at me, it’s hard to tell that anything difficult is going on because much of the pain I feel is not outward. That’s the way with Fibromyalgia: it’s called one of the “invisible illnesses.” But my Rheumatologist has given me a real diagnosis, and the pain of Fibromyalgia Syndrome is often complex and hard to understand.
Could I share with you what some of my days look like?
When I wake up in the morning, usually it’s a struggle to get out of bed. Even if I have slept, (but many nights I do not sleep well,) I still wake up dragging and feeling like I am walking through concrete. My Doctor has told me the term for that is “un-refreshing sleep,” and is common with Fibro patients. After I have my breakfast and my one cup of coffee that I allow myself, I might get a burst of energy and feel like I can finally catch up on some of my activities. . . .
To read the rest of this post, please join me over at my dear friend, Mandy Farmer’s site:
I am so honored to be part of her series, “Letters to Friends,” in which several fibro bloggers are writing letters to share their experiences with fibromyalgia.

I am so thankful that our Lord allows us to share our weaknesses with each other. And as we look to Him, in the sharing, our God will meet us right there:
He gives strength to the weary
and increases the power of the weak.
