Conquering Fibromyalgia- new network I created, come join!

I went back on my lyrica yesterday. I couldn’t stand the pain any longer. I couldn’t do anything being off the pill. Yesterday was an OK day. I was able to drive to ChinaMart, I mean WalMart, do some dishes, and cook dinner without any major pain problems!

I wanted to lose more weight so I quit taking the lyrica but now I see that I have to be happy with my body the way it is. The extra weight is something I have to live with I guess. I’ll only be able to lose another ten pounds according to the doctor and she can’t guarantee that due to the cymbalta, and the depo birth control shot I take. Both of those put weight on users.

I decided to start a new network group. I named it Conquering Fibromyalgia. I hope that you click over and join. Help support the cause. Eventually I would love for it to turn into a huge network with people meeting locally in support groups for fibromyalgia. I don’t have anything local in my area to support me. I think there should be a local gathering of support all over the nation. The closest thing I have regarding support group is Minneapolis! I can’t drive that far so lets hope the network grows and something comes along for my local area!

Whether you believe me or not it is really hard to deal with having fibromyalgia. People who don’t have the illness have no clue what it is like. Talking with them really doesn’t help most of the time. Most of the time when you try to talk to someone who doesn’t have fibromyalgia it just escalates tension in the relationship. No matter what relationship it is, it causes tension because it is quite simple. They do not understand what it is like to live with this disease.

The network can be a place to share your own story of suffering from fibromyalgia. It could be a place for you to learn more about the illness so that you can support your friends and family. The network can be a place where you gather to discuss the difficulties you have had with the illness, whether you have it, or someone you know has it. Please come over and support the network. Help me grow it large enough so that others eventually can have a local connection of support in the area they live in.

I’ll be posting another entry later this evening about how my day went today fighting my fibromyalgia. Until next time…

Are you ashamed of loving God?

I had received an E-mail earlier that got me to think. The message was about how you hesitate or don’t send a religious message through E-mail because of what others might think of you.

It seems to be easier to send an E-mail message about the terrors of the world, or to send some sex story about some Hollywood movie star, send a joke, but when it comes to a religious message, it seems to be less likely to be sent through the E-mail for fear of what others might think of you for sending it, or for fear you don’t know what religious belief they have themselves, if any.

I have to sadly admit it is harder for me to forward a message that has to do with God than any other message I forward. I do worry about whether the people I send it to have a belief in God. I am not worried about what people think of me so that is not it at all. I just don’t want to push my love of God onto others who might not believe it. I don’t think it right to push any religion on anyone. We are free to choose what to believe in and all will answer for that belief in the end.

Does it mean I am ashamed in some way of my love for God? I wonder. Do you have the same problem? Do you receive Christian E-mails for hesitate to send them for the reasons I’ve listed? Maybe a small part of me is ashamed of loving God.

The world makes it easier to worry about Brittany Spears, then to pray proudly. The world makes it easier to live a sinful life then to attend Church every Sunday. The world makes it easier just to accept the murder and mayhem within other countries then to tell people you love them and God. Everything has to be politically correct…

The E-mail message stated something that stuck to me the most. It mentioned how easy it is for people to believe what newspapers print but how hard it is for people to believe what the bible says.

I just thought this was an interesting topic that I could bring to the blog community. I am anxious to read your comments and replies about this subject matter.

Until then, God bless you and your families…

Shock Doctrine On Countdown With Naomi Klein

Cluster of things…

Today was a bad day. My FMS is kicking my ass today so my daughter and I watch movies and just relaxed. Nothing helped relieve the pain today. I believe it is because of the cold weather. It is negative temps here today.

Anyway I was thinking earlier I never explained why I chose LingoSlinger for the BTG award. I think I’ll clear that up now.

First of all she is one of the most talented writers I’ve come across in the cyber world. She writes so well that every piece of her work you read has a sense of her in it. It feels as though you might be reading her diary even if it is just some fiction piece she’s made up. She is her BLOG. I think she deserves that award and if you haven’t checked out her page I suggest you do so sometime.

I have so much I want to write about but it is so scattered in my mind I am afraid it wouldn’t make any sense to put it into one post. I had another strange dream…I am wondering if me not smoking is having any effect on my dream cycle? It is my seventh day!!! Today was a tough day to get through too, let me tell you, I even searched for some cigarettes in the house! Thank goodness there are none!! I think I would have broke down and smoked one. Well probably not the whole thing because it would have tasted like shit, but I would have lit it.

I think I am going to write about the dream in a separate post. Keep things as organized as I can here, LOL. Organized? Yeah right! That’s coming from a fibro fog sufferer. Organization is just a dream most of the time!

I think I’ll write another day. Have a good one.
