It Has Been an Awesome Privilege

It Has Been an Awesome Privilege

Through the Fog
I have been writing my column for Fibromyalgia News Today for about 15 months and have truly enjoyed the privilege. I have connected with many of you and you will always hold a special place in my heart.

We all go through seasons when we know we are doing what we are supposed to do. These past many months have been that for me. But I’m currently being led in a different direction. It’s sad to leave, yet important to do so.

It has been a blessing to share my columns with you. I’m so grateful to BioNews Services for giving me this wonderful opportunity. I’m thankful to all the editors who have made me a better writer and encouraged me along the way.

This was more than writing a column for me; it was a ministry. God opened up this opportunity for me and now He’s asking me to set it aside. I’m not sure what that entails, only that it will involve writing.

I’m in the process of getting a rough draft edited for a devotional I have written for women with chronic illness. I hope to have it available by the end of the year.

If you wish to keep in touch, my email address is: inspiteofmyillness@gmail.com.

Again, thank you for the privilege of sharing my thoughts and experiences with you. For the ladies, consider checking out my private Facebook Group.

    Robin; you have been such an inspiration. Your columns will be missed greatly. Good luck with your new path. My favorite quote is ” We must let go of the life we have planned, so as to accept the one that is waiting for us”, Joseph Campbell. Good luck to you.

    Onward and Upward, Robin! I’m excited for your new ventures, whatever they may be. You show us that Fibromyalgia is not the end of the world, just a change in the path we thought we were travelling. X X

    Thank you Robin for the well-written, insightful articles which provide encouragement for us. Your writing style is amicable for people with fibromyalgia who have concentration difficulties. Your empathy shines through! Good Luck with your future ventures.

  11. Robin–your posts have been such a gift to me, my patients, and everyone with fibromyalgia. One day (hopefully soon) we will be able to look back and say to our kids and grandkids, “their wasn’t always a cure for fibromyalgia, and life could be really tough. But we made it through because we helped each other.” Thank you for being one of the helpers!
