Fibromites Unite

I am in so much pain right now I can’t believe it. This is the worst it’s ever been. I’m laying on an electric blanket folded in half so it touches my whole body. I’m going back to the doctor this week. I don’t know what’s going on with me, but I am NOT about to spend the rest of my life laying around in pain. Not without a fight.

I think it might be my Lymes. I was diagnosed four years ago, did the antibiotics courses, and…nothing. Yet doctor after doctor tells me the same thing: fibromyalgia, nothing we can do, blah blah blah.

No. Sorry. I’m done with this bull. I’m 19 years old and it took me two hours to get out of bed this morning. You can’t be serious that there is NOTHING you can do for me.

I’m normally very passive, don’t really care what goes on. But now I’m pissed. Not the passing I’ll-be-over-it-by-tomorrow pissed, the kind where I am ready to do whatever it takes to fix this.

Apparently, a set of balls comes with having Lymes. Who knew?

Yes! I have actually done the Windex snafu, and my niece was hysterical with laughter when she found the bottle in the freezer!

It’s really amazing how much good can come from just watching a little panda cub stumble around his enclosure and try to figure out his world. This has been my saving grace for those really bad pain days, and I hope you can take some healing from it, too.

Just from reading some of the comments at the bottom of this page, my spirits have been lifted, knowing that others have taken comfort in this “little gift” as well.

The link to the actual Panda Cam can be found under the Video tab, along with the polar bears and elephants, among others.

Please, please read this. My personal comments to follow shortly.
