I have Fibromyalgia. That doesn't mean I don't take care of myself, refuse to exercise, make up symptoms or whine a lot. It does mean that I am an overachiever, a perfectionist, I push myself constantly, and really don't want to live this way, but I have no choice.
Those that know me know "I'm ok" is just my way of keeping the pain inside. Living with daily pain is not an easy thing to do & it takes a strong person to live like the pain isn't there. ~ Audrey Siebert
