this video was on msn news tonight.. i watched it... it made me wish i video journaledd my journey... the doctors told me too that i would never get better.. never walk right again... and i didnt take that lightly.. they wanted me to go on disability.. they never gave me any PT to do.. never once offered to help rehabiltate in any form...So i had to do it myself... i had to take those steps.... forge my way to walk.. then to walk better.. then to walk with a stride then to walk with speed.. then to get my flexibility back then to get my strength back.... it can be done.. and it hurts ALOT.... but all i needed was the never.. the cant.. and oh no you should be on disability said to me to bring the fight out... and show them.. screw them!.. they will not tell me what i can cant do... and i found my angel Jan 3rd 2010 in my gym.. in a zumba class... my first zumba teacher... she and the class helped me... get my spirits up .. the yes you can and you are doing great and you inspirie me to be a better person..these people.. will never know how much they have impacted my journey... they will never understand the magnatitude to which they pushed me along on my journey....and that is ok... I have many zumba families each one has seen a different me.... each one has contributed in there own way to making me back to me....then I have have my fibro warriors that understand the i did to much today .. the weather is killing aspect.. the ok why cant i do these things days.. and the tears that stream slowly down my face as i write from the heart telling you it hurts but i will do it... and now cheering all of you on.. begging you not to lose you mobility because i have been there... it is a tough road.. it is a long road.. but we are in it for the log hauul.. it only took one person to believe in me .. and i am going to be that oe person that believes in all of you.. I love you my fibro warrios.. love each and everyone of you... we all have walked the walk... we all talk the talk...and we all understand the pain the heart ache and the fight we have each day.. and i will never give up on ay of you.. we will do this together... never give up.. please keep moving.... and i cryed through this video that i attched *please watch* it really shows the strugge and the perservance and the detrermination adn the pain and heartache.... We can .. we will .. beat this... learn to live good lives with this... and love each other always !! hugs and love! My Fibro warriors!

Hubby and I watched that together. He said the first word when it was over. "DAy-um!" I'm sitting here all teared up.

Adewyn, you have the self-determination that the vet in the video had. I wish I had that kind of determination. My hat is off to you and to him and to all the Fibromite warriors like you. You are an inspiration to us all.

Thank you Adewyn, your timing is exquisite I believe that I needed to see this as I cried through the whole video. He and you are warriors of an elite class and someday I hope to join that class, in the distant future when I figure out how to get there. Thanks for sharing this I will be watching it repeatedly. Hugs and Love
