I have family that suffer with this. So hard not to be able to make it better.

Lady with the Migraines

Researchers discovered a neural signature that identified fibromyalgia with 93% accuracy, according to a 72-patient” study

“These results build off of other important previous work and have to be replicated using other samples of fibromyalgia patients. They represent a natural step in the evolution of our understanding of fibromyalgia as a disorder with an important brain component.”

Really?

img_3536Oh joy.  It’s February.  Valentine’s Day.  I am behind on my cool mom stuff I always try to do.  I don’t have my décor up.  I am sure being sick the past 3 weeks may have something to do with it.  But I have the mom guilt.  If you are a mom, then you know what I mean.  Mom guilt makes no sense.  But we have it.

Your Not Getting Brownie Points

img_3394Let’s make it simple.  Stop telling your children to treat others better than you are choosing to treat them.  Stop telling them to follow the Golden Rule when you yourself show the opposite.  Guidance and redirection doesn’t have to be put downs and intentionally hurtful.

Taking The Easy Route – A Poem About Invisible Illness

But this is all I’ve got

Sometimes just doing normal things
