I saw this on facebook this morning and it spoke to me. I suffer, like thousands more with chronic pain from Fibromyalgia, plus arthritis. Achy muscles and joints always. Some days are better, but they are few and far between! Still, I will confess......I feel guilty at times when I don't feel up to doing what I once could do. I sometimes feel guilty when my daughter comes to clean, doing for me what I don't feel like doing myself. Yet, I am so grateful she can and will help. She fights the pain of fibro herself, but deals with it differently than I. She doesn't allow the pain to rule her life. I am trying! I don't understand this strange disease, even many doctors don't recognize this as a disease. They can come up with reasons to explain it away. Making someone feel crazy, in a sense of the word. At least that has been my experience. I have even been told that most all my pain stems from the weight I carry, or that I may be hiding some unforgiving feelings in my heart toward someone, that was suggested to me by a well meaning Christian sister. All I know is that I hurt! Whatever the reason, I just have to trust my Lord. He knows all, he sees all, he is so aware of me. What I need, and when the best time for that need is to be met, if I suffer for some good than so be it!
To let you know dear friends, I won't be able to have the Bariatric surgery at this time. The Psychologist that tested me stated that I am to have some psychological counseling before I am deemed fit for this surgery. So that is where I am at with that news. I don't really enjoy these types of posts, but sometimes sharing helps. Blessings my sweet friends
