Making Awareness Day Personal

For 2012, 2013 and 2014, I went BIG for Fibromyalgia Awareness Day. This year, I’ll admit to dropping the ball. I’m tired, physically and emotionally. I’m tired of fighting the world. So this year, I’ve been fighting for me!

I’m sorry if you feel like I have let you down and not been there to support you.

I made this video (quite a while ago) because I am lucky enough to have a Mommy who loves me and tries to understand. (I’m not so sure about the rest of the family.) But, because of this, it upset me so much when I hear from so many of you that you don’t have the support and understanding you need. Friends and family are supposed to be there for whenever you need them. Most days, I get a message or comment from some-one who is lacking support from their nearest and dearest. Sometimes, it’s because you hide your pain, or you haven’t asked for help. Sometimes it’s because they just don’t get it. 

I’m hoping that presenting these people with this video might help.

    This video is very good, truly it is. But I will need to watch it a few more times to be able to read all of it. Some of it is timed well while some pages go too fast.
    Don’t apologise for not doing as much as you have done in the past. You over-extended yourself and like so many of us you had more energy then while now you are tired and a bit discouraged.
    We understand. Fibromyalgia takes its toll and sometimes it is all we can do to put one foot in front of the other.
    Thank you for all you have done. One day you will have a bit more energy and will do a bit more, perhaps a comic. They were very good. Please take care of yourself. We all must learn to do this.
    We are grateful for all you do and look forward to hearing from you whenever you are able to communicate with us.
    Gentle hugs
    Rachel
