I've been going through a bit of a rough time lately. The actions of someone else left me with no money to refill four of my prescriptions for ten days, which left me in incrediblepain, wracked up hundreds of dollars in NSF charges at the bank , depleted what was left of any savings, and left me to just "deal with it" all.
This morning, while trying to figure out how to pay my bills, I was in tears over being scared, not knowing what to do, and not knowing where to go.
Although it had nothing whatsoever to do with Fibro, I turned to my family at the FMS forum. I am a (now "orphaned") only child and never had much family to turn to in my life. Today, I learned what it was like to actually have a family.
Without judgement of any kind, the people here opened their hearts and their minds to me, giving me all kinds of suggestions for help and surrounding me with warmth and support.
I can't begin to tell you what all that has meant to me.
Even though I am sitting here tonight in a lot of pain, due to the stress I was under from early in the day, on, I am still filled with a warmth of caring and understanding.
The words "thank you" are not enough to express what I feel, but they're all I can think of to say.
Thank you....from the bottom of my heart.
