Letter Board No. 39

Get outside and feel the sunshine on your face!

Summer is here and after a year+ of COVID lockdowns, restrictions, grocery shortages, and masks, the world is ready to get out. Out to eat. Out to the movies. Out in the sun. Out to travel or see friends. Or just to get on with their lives. I, myself, have been ready for some time now to travel or just get back to normalcy, but these words are often easier said than done for a variety of reasons.

Dear Fibromyalgia…

I’d like to break up with you.

Do you ever wish you could just break-up with your chronic illness? I do. Here’s what I would tell fibromyalgia if it really were that simple.

Letter Board No. 20

Just a quick one for a Monday morning. Anyone else feel like the weekends just aren’t long enough? 🙋🏻‍♀️ My to-do list is overflowing lately and there just isn’t enough time to get it all done AND relax a bit on the weekends. Sigh….

Perhaps it’s the exhaustion and pain (fibro flare) that I am still suffering. But this describes my Monday mood…. More coffee, please. Extra shot.

Nonetheless, I hope you all have a wonderful week! Do something wonderful for yourself!! Self-care is selfless, not selfish. (More on that later.) I am taking Friday off to knock off some things from that list. 😉 But first, coffee.

Cheers!

Letter Board No. 17

“Never let the things you can’t do, stop you from doing what you can.”

Fibromyalgia Awareness Day was yesterday, but it’s also recognized for the entire month of May. Fibromyalgia Syndrome is marked by widespread musculoskeletal pain, fatigue, and sleeping problems. The result of this is often that those of us with it are a shell of our former selves, too fatigued or in pain to carry on the life we once led.

While running marathons may no longer be in our wheelhouse, let’s not forget there are still plenty of things we can do and enjoy in life. We may have to adapt or take things in moderation, but that doesn’t mean we have to live a life of loneliness and isolation.

“Never let the things you can’t do stop you from doing what you can.”

Ronald Reagan

Just like Ferris Bueller says at the end of the movie, “Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in awhile, you could miss it.” So my fellow fibrowarriors, my hope for you is that you find something you can do so you can enjoy the life you have.

Cheers!

Cynthia
