- My kids have a very extensive vocabulary thanks to my fibro, because I always forget to "dumb things down" when I talk so that they can understand. When my daughter was 4, her aunt started talking to her in kid talk, and my daughter just looked at her like she was crazy and said, " Quit patronizing me!" LOL.
- I have become much much calmer since fibro. Stress always flares me up so I had to figure out how to not let things get to me and how to solve problems quickly and efficiently so that I had as little stress as possible. I was so high strung, type A prior to fibro, and now everyone says I'm the calmest person they know. It is a great feeling!
I get to sort of revert back to childhood. Take naps when I need to ( I LOVE nap time). On my bad days I don't have to cook, clean, or perform any of my other "adult" responsibilities. I can lay on the couch and watch cartoons all day. LOL
