"it's my life"

My doctors appointment yesterday went well overall. I do have fibromyalgia. Right after the appointment I was so relieved because someone finally listened to me, but then it hit me; I have something that has no cure, and will probably be with me my whole life. It's discouraging and overwhelming.

The thing I keep thinking is that no one is promised health. You never know what will happen to you, and no one is promised a good or easy life. For some reason I find comfort in that.

I'm so lucky to have Ronald. He helped me so much yesterday and is always there for me.


Have you finished Christmas shopping? Do you bake anything fun for Christmas? I always make homemade sugar cookies. Things are a bit rushed so I hope I can find some time to make them this year. :)

love and hope for next year,



  1. Oh nooo :( That's got to be rough but it sounds like you're looking at it the right way.

    I have not finished shopping and I'm stressing out about it!

  2. It is so nice to have someone to lean on. Ronald seems like a great guy. My mother also has Fibro & I fear I might have it too. I wish you the best on this journey.

    1. Dear Em, I'm sorry to hear your mom has fibro and that you may have it too. It is so painful and I don't really know much about it, but hopefully I can get some pain management in place.

      Sending love,



I adore your notes! Please don't be shy! :)
