Quote of the Day – Perseverance

“Perseverance is not a long race; it is many short races one after the other.”
–Walter Elliot

Fibromyalgia isn’t a sprint. It’s a marathon. Each day is its own separate trial where we battle the pain of our invisible disease. We don’t aim so much to beat it but to make it through the day. Make it through to get to the next battle. But we fibro sufferers are fighters. Maybe stubborn too. I know I am. I treat each day as a fresh start. How good or bad yesterday was pain wise doesn’t matter. Today is a new chance at a good day. And if it is a good day, I make the most of it. If it’s a bad day, I still try to make the most of it. I keep fighting. I persevere. Maybe one day they will have a cure. I hope so. Then our perseverance will really have paid off!


Invisible Illness Awareness Week

It’s Invisible Illness Awareness week (September 9-13)! I wanted to share this graphic in honor of all of us out there suffering from an invisible illness like fibromyalgia. Remember, just because you can’t see our pain doesn’t mean it isn’t real. Soft hugs everyone 🙂
