Nov 07, 2015 9:57 AM

Hi all.. Just wanted to drop in and actually give a positive look at my family. It's been a rocky road. And I'm sure we have more road to travel. But for now it seems my mom is finally beginning to accept my health situation. She is beginning to research fibromayalgia and even the meds I'm taking to help look out for side effects. She actually addressing and talking about fibromayalgia. Before she would not even say the word. She still has a hard time with Lupus but its OK I'll take what I have . my sister who has already been doing OK with her concern except for the ditch situation. Finally things are feeling a little less tense for me here. I'm very thankful for the peace that is here now. Thank you all for your advice and support during g all the harshness. Thank you for all the prayers and virtual hugs. I'm happy I can finally have a smile on my face when referring to my family.

What an awesome post!! I am so very happy for you. (Let's join hands and jump up and down in place like when we were kids and all happy over something..LOL!!) I hope that they continue to be as understanding and that you keep that smile on your face!! Try to be positive and if they start to back tread, remind them of this day and being the understanding back. (sometimes it takes more than one time of chatting to get it to stick in their brains). For now, relish in the fact that they do get it and that you will have some peace of mind. Sending you gentle {{Hugs}} and prayers and my best wishes to continued success with your family. 💕🙏🏻🌻

Alwayz.. Yes I am ecstatic for the change in my family. Now we have to work on getting my mom on board with getting me a service animal or a companion animal. My uncle brought over a dog he found and we bonded instantly. However was against it. After a while inkind of gave up the fight and my sister took the dog away. I'm sad now but mom was Beginning to crack so I'm hoping she will change her mind although i don't think I'll get that dog back. But at any rate today was still a great day at least I had a dog for a short time. Ha..lol oh and yes let join hands and jump around in circles with bows in our hair..lol lol yippie....lol

Hallelujah!!! Have your Dr prescribe a service dog. Then it's medication so to speak. Now that they are working on learning about your disease, things will ease off. I'm so happy for you!!!

Newfibrogirl, that is so wonderful! I can speak as a parent of grown children, & as a child of a parent watching their child suffer... neither is easy. It's hard for my children, husband, & 85 year old father to see me in pain, especially my dad. Your mom has made a huge step but she may need more time to fully understand and accept where you're illnesses are going to take you through, where you will suffer. It's very hard to see your child suffer. As in everything we all do, take one step at a time, pray & have faith. (((Hugs))), continued prayers, & jumping for joy with the rest of you! Praising God too! 🙏🌼
