Death Must Be Faced

I planned on doing Fibromyalgia Awareness posts all this month, every Wednesday. It was a sound plan. Then my parent's neighbor died, she was very ill. This was expected but when it happened it was still sad. About two days later... my uncle died. He, too, was very ill. In fact, he was in hospice... Continue Reading →

She Reached Out…

I found myself in a very unique position. As I began blogging, knowing I would be sharing things that had happened to me that were traumatic, I wavered on creating a false identity. I write poetry under the name k.Lynel. But this, blogging 'thing,' seemed different. I decided against it and wrote under my real... Continue Reading →

My Apologies

Guess what day it is? Wedding Day! Yes, my nephew will be getting married at 4pm today. I must say, it is a beautiful day here in Minnesota.

I need to function as a whole person; wife, sister, daughter, friend ... I am struggling, but I am... Continue Reading →

Possible Prevention and Survival; the Inevitable Fibro Flare! (With Terri from Reclaiming H.O.P.E.)

"That’s where pre-planned recovery days come in. Whatever we call those days when we have to take it easy, I’d guess that most of us with fibromyalgia have taken them when we’re having a bad flare, but I’ve found pre-planned recovery days are extremely helpful as well. Whenever I’ve engaged in more activity..." [continue reading, Pre-Planned Recovery Days; One... Continue Reading →

There is ‘Stuff’ Going On …

I have a hard time staying present when talking to friends, family, even my husband some days. I am always bringing up the past, my past. They have raised families, attended weddings, vacationed, changed jobs, moved ... all the things 'normal' people do. I wonder, is my thought process that stunted? It is. I am... Continue Reading →
