Fibromyalgia is a Give and Take
I also suffer from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, it's a pretty debilitating illness that also leaves me in bed. Often I don't have energy to do things, though there are days where I push myself really hard to function but it does have it's consequences.
Chronic Fatigue and Fibromyalgia together kind of make you feel like you have some sort of strange flu that will never go away. But just as Fibro has taken away things from my life, it has also given me friends with similar illnesses. Meeting and talking to people with similar illnesses it's almost magical in a way because it's someone who understands you completely. And won't judge you if you haven't gotten out of your pj's in days.
In the end, I want to encourage you guys who haven't joined some sort of online chronic illness group to find one and become a part of it. My friends live thousands of miles away from me or entirely different countries but we make it work. My friends are precious to me they keep me strong and I'm happy I was able to gain something good in my life despite being sick.
