It’s been a hard week, friends. I’m often asked what Fibromyalgia feels like. Some describe it as feeling the aches and pains of the flu…all the time. Others says it’s overwhelming fatigue and brain fog that never end no matter how much they rest. Then there are those who have the shooting pain as if electricity is running through their veins causing numbness and tingling like pins and needles. To me it’s all of the above …and then some.
I try so hard to not let it get me down. The truth is, it does. It’s hard on me, my family, my relationships and my marriage. Those closest to me don’t even get it…because it’s impossible to put into words the constant, grueling battle raging within. It’s not their fault…it just is.
This month marks 17 years of this battle. Today marks 18 years married to my husband. Through the flood and fire, he has faithfully remained by my side all the while…even when I wanted to give up. I am so grateful for someone to walk this journey with…I can’t even imagine where I would be if God had not given me this gift. I praise Him for His plans for me.
