We Want To: But Can’t!.

I stumbled upon this while perusing a fellow Fibromite’s blog. Shelly over at Fighterzblog so perfectly paints the picture of my life with her poignant words that I was moved to tears…nothing else really needs to be said

On my Ipod: Fly

I came to win, to fight, to conquer to thrive…I came to to win, to survive, to prosper to rise…to FLY...these lyrics really sum up my thoughts and feelings at this very moment… every time I overcome a hurdle…push through the fatigue and fog… for the all times when I take three steps forward then get pushed five steps back…to the doctors who tell me it is all in my bed….when I know better that it’s not…for living in this skin and fighting this monster day after day…for the times when I give in to the pain…but never give up on the fight…for the small accomplishments that seem so insignificant to you… but are small victories for me…for remembering that I’m not a failure until I quit……I will win, I will survive…. I WILL FLY... #get ready for it

This story made me think how even in tragedy one can find joy…after death comes birth, rebirth and life, at the end of every storm is rainbow…#if you believe you will achieve

On my Ipod: can you stand the rain

sunny days, everyone loves them…but Can you stand the rain….New Edition was speaking to a love interest…but the overarching message of this song applies to my situation…as you know I am amidst an intense flareup….as I predicted this weekend…my pushing and being immodest last week  caught up with me this week…and my body is pushing back….even though I am accustomed to this….flare surges always catch my mind off guard as I can never know how intense the pain and fatigue will be, or how long they will last…it is so easy to forget the “good”(remember good for me is relative, pain and fatigue are always there, and high but I bear with it) and wallow in woe and mourn on the more severe days….but as the song says I am trying to stand the rain…so, this time I won’t wallow in a woeful place, just be honest and know that this too will pass….Can you stand the rain? ….praying for peace of mind and solace for all those mourning, paining, and suffering tonight….for some joy will not come in the morning…but hopefully sooner rather than later #goodnight #stay triumphant
