Thank you for starting this beautiful thread! A little positivity goes such a long way; and allows gratitude for all that we have and all that we are to be front and centre
I live by this one! I used to be so sad and focused on my illness all the time. One day I heard something similar to that and my whole life changed. I know my limitations but it doesn’t define me as a person at all, I am SOOO much more than my fibro and I instead choose to focus on all the amazing things that I have been lucky enough to have in my life and they just keep coming!
Same here with my skin condition. I either can lay in bed all the day in a dark room and drink myself to death or I focus on healing and the good things about me.
Yes!!! I had to track everything for a while when I was being diagnosed. That’s when I felt the worst too-I couldn’t even hold pens, couldn’t type, I could barely walk up the stairs, I was exhaused and my pain was EVERYWHERE- it bounced all around. I had to log my food and fluid intake too. Search for triggers, there are a lot! After I was diagnosed, they wanted to stick me on meds. I said no thanks, now that I know what I’m fighting I’m good. She was legit shocked and tried to give me lyrica or gabapentin. I did take the muscle relaxers for the really bad days when I overdo it and a 30 day supply lasted me 3 years, lol. But I’ve never felt that bad again since I changed my mindset!
Unless you’re depressed and don’t get help. But that’s not positive, and this is a positivity thread, so… Let’s see…
