The Other Me

As I’ve mentioned. I have Fibromyalgia and Myofascial Pain Syndrome. Being a formerly active, healthy gal, having a chronic pain syndrome is a major adjustment. Sometimes, it brings me (temporarily) to my knees and transforms my normally beautiful life into a nightmarish one. I’ve got a separate blog for those times. If you don’t see recent posts on Moonbeam McQueen, chances are I’ve posted on my FibromyOWgia blog. It gives me a separate place to vent, rant, cry, post information and commiserate with others who are dealing with the same thing. It’s not really a “poor me” page, it’s more like a– okay, maybe it’s a “poor me” page.

  1. I looked at your ‘other life’ and realized we have quite a bit in common. I have MS and like you I try to maintain a positive attitude.

    You Go Girl!

  2. Thank you– same to you! I’m glad you dropped by.

    I think everyone needs to let it all out every now and then.
    My mom suffers from Fibromialgia as well and I pray that someday, someone will find an answer to her suffering. I’ll keep you in the thoughts for that day as well.

  4. @ cowgal: I think it really does help sometimes too. I tend to get very quiet when I’m having a bad flare (as I’ve had this past week), but sometimes it really helps to whine! I hope your mom’s doing okay. This can be pretty rough. Thanks for keeping me in your thoughts!

  5. Hi there,
    I’ve been pre-occupied lately and have not been a faithful reader due to some nasty shit going down in my life. I also have fibromyalgia and like you I tend to be very quiet when I’m enduring a flare-up as I did over the last 2 weeks.

    Here’s a big {{HUG}}. As soon as I’m on my feet again I’ll be back to visit.

  6. @ brightfeather: I’m so glad to “see” you! I know from reading your blog that you’ve had a lot of tough stuff going on these days. Sometimes, I can’t find the right words, but I’m sorry, and hope that things turn around quickly. Sending you big hugs too. Hope you’re feeling well soon!

    Hey, I’m sorry to hear you have the dreaded Fibromyalgia. Me too. F’ing sucks, doesn’t it?

  8. @ ghettogirl: Oh nooooo….you too? Oh yes, it definitely sucks. Is there a word for “beyond sucks?”

    I to live this fibromyalgia nightmare . I somtimes wonder if life is worth living.

    Leave you a warm hug and a huge kiss. I’m with you, although I do not have Fibromyalgia. However I suffer from BPD and I understand what you mean when you say; “Is there a word for “beyond sucks”? New words need sometimes to be invented to express things… pain in this case. Physical, mental, emotional, whatever!

    Love,

    C.
