Don’t offer advice unless they ask for it. 

Unless you are a professional in the field, steer away from giving any unsolicited medical, nutritional, or mental health advice. More than likely the person will have already tried what you’re suggesting or it will be downright dangerous for them. Leave the advice to the experts.

Watch a fibro documentary titled Getting Our Lives Back.

    Um…while this is all well and good…you have to have people who are willing and able to stick around for the ‘good’ days after you’ve had months of bad ones. They finally just stop asking.

    Thank you Sandra. I do still have a good life. I believe people react as they do out of ignorance and their own insecurities. They do cease asking or coming around. They don’t know what to do or say and when I am present I can feel their uneasiness. The way it is-can;t change it, can’t fix it.
    Hurting a lot today so will sip my ginger tea and snuggle up w/ my rice bag. weather change coming-a living, breathing barometer. Doppler has nothing on this old timer.
    I too hope you have a good enough life. Hoping to be able to work on a watercolor once I get warm on the inside. Currently the only thing not hurting are my earlobes. 🙂
    Blessings, Em
