Struggle to Strength

Hello Peers,

Today is a struggle. I slept very little and when I did finally fall asleep for three hours, I slept in a position that has left my neck in a flare of pain. Despite this pain I have important things that must be done today. Yesterday was also a day of needing to get out of the house and attend to the beginning of the month duties. This did not help with my flared pain today. If you are like me, going out and doing errands, driving, and dealing with stresses of pushing shopping carts, traffic, heck even just the weight of the steering wheel, can leave you in pain. Well, here I am without an out for today.

I am choosing to struggle. I could just give up and stay on the coach; believe me it would be much easier for me today. I instead am choosing to find my strength in my pain. You might ask me how is there any strength, any benefit to my suffering? This is a question I have to ask myself a few times a week. Sometimes I don’t really have any answer. Sometimes, I just give in and give up. Today, my answer is that if I go out and do these few errands, with this pain, I will beat Fibromyalgia at it’s own game! What a lovely idea, to be better than it.

I hope that we all can find our strength today.

    I don’t even know the way I ended up right here, however I thought this put up
    used to be great. I don’t understand who you might be but definitely you are going
    to a famous blogger in case you aren’t already. Cheers!

    • Hi Lavern, I visited you page and I don’t know how you wound up here either. I very much appreciate your kind words and if I become a famous blogger, that is more than I striving for, but, wow; how interesting that would be :). If you have chronic pain, or know someone who does, you can direct them to my site if you believe it might assist them to find their path to positivity and wellness despite their pain. All my best, Lucinda
