No longer anemic! So, monthly trips to get b12 shots are over :) I'm finally starting to get on my own two feet. I've had a lot of opportunities pour into my lap in the last 3 months and I strive each day to keep my pain undercontrol so that I can go and do things that I want to. I constantly try to forget about the "pain" because I fear that if I focus on my physical needs too much that I will become inverted and live a life of loneliness, pain and hiding. On the bright side, I have really come almost full circle with my firbo/cfs (as far as managing it goes)... I like to think of fibro as a sprained ankle that will one day heal intself. Yet, I know I'm stuck with it... but hey, the thought process helps me to push through.
I'm going to be attending college full time soon and holding a part-time job so I really will need to focus on keeping my mental health leveled so that my pain and fatigue won't affect me as much. I encourage everyone whos young and with this dis-ease to never take anything for granted, never give up (cliche, whatever) and to take opportunities while pacing yourself.
One more thing, Fibromyalgia DOES NOT define you.... Youre in control.. therefore YOU define fibromyalgia
