I have not blogged very much since health unlocked began as I have been busy supporting local people with fibro with regular coffee mornings and newsletters keeping them in the loop. It has been a funny 8 yeas of fibrofog and for me a huge turning point as thanks to the support I have had from friends and family I have been pacing myself and rewarding myself for each little step of progress I make. I still have fibro , I will always have it but it won't have me moaning about it anymore . What has fibro given me - the opportunity to connect with hundreds of women and share an experience, my journey ,my poetry and ultimately last month as I celebrated my birthday a woderful set of supportive friends some of whom I have never met in person but have been there all along through social media and blogs . I celebrated my birthday week by attending a Women in Business launch and listened to the inspirational talks and was so glad I slept through the day so that I could stay awake for the evening. On my birthday I went for a photoshoot - this time with no wheelchair , me as I am now , 5 1/2 stone lighter , transformed inside and out and they even put some temporary lashes on me ( I lost a lot of my lashes and hair with meds side effects ). I felt wonderful fo 2 whole hours. My hubby came home so I could nap but I was to tired for a birthday meal so had home made pizza and cake in bed - devine. So you see I still pace myself , I have to constantly weigh up if I want to do this then something will have to be sacificed , but it is so worth it . That feeling of I can ! is fabulous and rewarding and speaking of rewards I had the best thankyou this week as I received an email telling me someone had nominated me for an awards as serial social media queen. I had no idea about these awards but was as excited as a child on their birthday as nominations and support came forward . I have now made it to the top 100 and will let you know if I make it though the next round - It is nice to think that for all these years blogging has been not only an outlet for my emotions and frustrations but of some amusement and support to others too - thats what it's all about - thanks guys xx
