I have Fibro/EBV/Sleep Disorder/Asthma and RLS. I do work part-time, and have time now to spend doing things around my home, learning to embrodry on my sewing machine, trying some new cooking ideas on my unsuspecting husband, and play with my little dog. Even if some days I have lots of pain, on those days I take it easy, however when I am pain free, (or what we call "pain free"), I do what I enjoy. In working, I work 3-days per-week, (tues/wed/thurs/)and as a Medical Record Specialist, pain or not, I do go to work. I am very fortunate, I work for my doctor, and there have been times that she has sent me home because she could see my pain. I have to becareful because of the asthma, this has put me down more often the everything else. But on the whole, my fibro, etc. has taught more valuable lessons, than I learned before fibro days. I do have a high respect for all my medical problems, however I have more self-respect now, than before. I know my limits, but I also know that I can go right up to those limits and sometime beyond.
The above is what I wrote today to answer and assist another Fibro friend. She has found something other than feeling sorry for herself, and she threw out a challenge to the rest of us to do the same. It was not until I took her challenge, that I realized that I too had come to understand this thing called Fibro and all the problems I have that goes with it.
