Hi Stephanie. Following you from MBC. I know it's Wordless Weds, but reading about you, I'm compelled to write. I can't imagine facing what you're facing medically, but I was diagnosed (after years of being mis-diagnosed) w/fibromyalgia 19 yrs ago - just 6 mos after my 3 stepsons moved in full time.
To say I was OVERwhelmed is an UNDERstatement. I was so tired, weak, sore,which led to anger, guilt, frustration and sometimes hopelessness.
But we got thru it, one day at a time. They're grown(ish) now and I have a precious 2 yr old grandson. I still battle w/physical limitations, but it's just who I am.
For me, I found once I accepted myself, everyone around me did too.
I'm glad to meet you and hold you in my prayers. You'll get thru it - one day at a time.
