Fibro/ME is not for whimps...

Sometimes I think we don't give ourselves enough credit for just how strong we are. Dealing with Fibro/ME is not for whimps.

To deal with any kind of chronic illness takes strength and fortitude IMO But dealing with an invisible illness takes a special kind of person. Please don't ever doubt your strength and courage you have it in abundance xx

Hi Tiny, we all have days where we like utter tripe. But your strength comes from the fact at least you are trying and I am sure you will keep on trying. I think you should give yourself a great big gentle pat on the back. At least you made the effort to get to collage well done you πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘

I hope you will soon be recovered enough to get back to your studies. Rest up today and be kind to yourself πŸ€—πŸ€—

I understand, I raised 2 kid under the age of 2 when I just started with this illness. Both in their 40s now. I sometimes look back and wonder how I did it abd held down two part time jobs.

Sometimes I think I feel greatful I got the illness when I was in my twenties. Because If I had just been diagnosed now at 63 I'm not sure I would be able to cope. But maybe that's just with hindsight xx

Hi Tiny, I'm sure we all understand. It is difficult when you have children. How old is your son may I ask?

Awww he sounds like a Treasure. Kids I found are more resilient than we give them credit for sometimes. I actually found my kids were more understanding and stronger than I was on my bad days. Xx

To have pain 24/7 you have to be extremely strong and resilient just like we all are Mo Love & Hugs Xx
