We're Human

Another day, another flare.  All this amounts to is total frustration and a lot of pain.  Those of us with Fibromyalgia are used to it I guess to some extent.  I don't think you ever really get used to being in pain 24/7.  We all have those days when we wish we could just have one day without pain so we can remember what it feels like.  I wish that all the time.  I try not to though because it just makes it harder to deal with everything.

It seems like those around me expect me to be a pro at being sick or something.  I'm supposed to be able to handle it.  I'm supposed to be able to deal with how I feel.  I'm supposed to live my life as if nothing is wrong with me.  I've got news for everyone...I'm human.  I don't have superpowers and if you think my illness is confusing and hard to understand take the time to imagine what it's doing to me.  I don't understand either, but yet I'm forced to deal with it every day of my life.  No breaks, no vacations, nothing.  I don't deal with it very well, but I'm still learning.

That's how it is for all of us.  We have an illness that most doctor's don't even understand so we don't have a lot of weapons to defend ourselves with.  We don't always get the support we need, but we're strong and we're determined.  I've noticed that with all of us fibromites.  We have our bad days when we whine and cry, but then we have our days where we're ready to kick ass.  Again, we're human and we're adapting to something that has totally changed our lives.

I hope this makes some kind of sense.  My brain isn't exactly functioning at a 100% today.  I wish everyone an awesome afternoon.  *Gentle Hugs*
