I am an optimistic person by choice. Over 10 years ago I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia (the ghost disease) and I managed it quite well. That all changed two years ago: when in March of 2020 I got Covid which turned into long-haulers. My controlled Fibromyalgia became out of control and then after recieving the vaccine it went into full attack mode. I decided to leave my job in July of 2021 because of my worsening condition. The road to recovery will be long, unclear, and with many back sliding days ahead of me.
Unemployeed and struggling with how to stay positive I have turned to writing. I have always wanted to write but never had the time to devote to it. I have been doing a ton of research about how to write. Research told me to just start writing and you will get better. Well its time to start. I hope I get better and others are gently but truthful about my blossoming skills.
My hope it to help others with life changing conditons, events, or whatever see the humor and bright sides. My condition has forced me to slow down--way down. I was always go, go, going. Now I am enjoying each day for what it has to offer me and what I have to offer it. I don't know what the future holds for me or where I will end up. I am embracing life and living in the moment and being thankful for the little things I get to experience.
Thank you for reading and commenting on my thoughts and experiences. Inner piece to you all.
