The article went on to say that there is so much guilt that comes with the pain .....When you have to say I can't do that because of my pain your not taken seriously now imagine what guilt when you have no test result just the words it's not this so it must be Fibromyalgia ....There are so many stereotypes associated with pain and how we deal with it sometimes even doctors can't or won't help
I think the following video explains it all ....We who suffer with Fibromyalgia just want understanding and to know we have a support system with family and friends ....People who will never make us feel like our pain is not real ......... We need to know we have someone there to help raise us up
There was a time when I questioned if there was a God ......I now after many months of searching and wondering know that we have to believe something and if we don't what do we have .......My best friend in the world told me the other day when I'm in pain or I can't sleep just try to talk to God and ask for peace and it worked ....So maybe there is a God and maybe not but I need to believe something.............................
So I would like to add a suggestion to the following list on what you can do to ease your pain and that is to whisper for peace when you feel you can't go on
In the Chatelaine article there were ten suggestions on how you could ease your pain at home...
2. Practise Tai Chi
3. Gentle stretch exercises
5. Go for a coffee or Tea
6. Sip Ginger Tea
7. Spend 10 mins on your game system shooting enemies
8. Listen to music that you like...Music that calms you
9. Fall in love ....Love really do conquer all
10. Try to remain Positive
The article clued up by saying we need to teach others that people with pain are not a bunch of wimps, malingerers or drug seekers ....They need to see we are real people with a real disease that needs to be treated....
