We are survivors not victims - thanks Sarah jane. How true that is we are indeed survivors

and guys we all need to remember that, although there are times when it does not feel like that, you all know them the day when loneliness strikes through our hearts like an arrow or when the pain levels win for a bit. That is when we need to shake it off and be strong courageous and fight for we are survivours and we can still help others and make a difference in this world.

Survivours push the pain to the back and strike out bravely empowered to do something - however small- lets try very hard not to let this drastic condition ruin our lives even if we only spread love and comfort in the world we will have done something a lot of people never achieve.

A smile a geentle hug a word of comfort or encouragement will help others and our selves.

I have this image of survivors from a boating disaster floundering in inflatables but we are better than that we are positive lovely people battling Mr Fibro in every way we can . One day researchers will find a better way of helping us and in the mean time we are a group of caring sharin FIBROMITES :)

I do not know where all this came from - well from a line of Sarah janes Thanks hope I am not too over the top xgins

  • Very well put gins, rather reminded me of the final scene in black adder 4 when they all go over the top of the trench together......as a team to face the enemy.... It probably would be even better if I could find the post you were inspired by

  • Thanks Gins.

    It is hard sometimes to stay positive, especially when life and other people seem to conspire against it! But this illness hasn't beaten me, and won't!



  • dont let it hun there is so much we can do! xgins

  • thanks Gins, its not the fibro - it's the other stuff - well, people - well, mainly just one person, the soon-to-be-ex-husband, so life is very stressful, and that makes the fibro worse, and then that makes the future harder to be positive about, and around the circle we go again. BUT I know I am strong, and I WILL be OK, and probably in many ways better off without him. It's just the process of getting to that point.

    But I am daily thankful for friends and family, and this site, and people like you, and I can still smile - yes, even at your Christmas jokes!



  • the jokes are really awful aren't they but it wouldnot be christmas without them - it is like Pantomime I love the nonsence the fun and the quick clean humor


  • What amazing words gins!!! you have managed to say what a life of Fibro really involves without sounding in the least bit negative. In fact these words say what life is like for all of us in a "positive" and "inspiring" way! well done to you :) xx

  • I am so glad they made sence to you I was just taken by the quote and it all bubbled out- take care xgins

  • At times our own light goes out and is rekindled by a spark from another person. Each of us has cause to think with deep gratitude of those who have lit the flame within us.

    Keep being the spark for one another !


  • Brilliant post Gins! Absolutely right too! We are indeed survivors and together we make an army of survivors all fighting for the same cause. One day people with Fibromyalgia will hopefully have an easier time of it, will be understood and helped and supported in the best way possible.

    Until that day, we keep fighting and we keep surviving! All for one, and one for all! :)
