It’s a Small Fibromyalgia World

Kind of. To quote the National Fibromyalgia Association,

” Fibromyalgia is one of the most common chronic pain conditions. The disorder affects an estimated 10 million people in the U.S. and an estimated 3-6% of the world population. While it is most prevalent in women —75-90 percent of the people who have FM are women —it also occurs in men and children of all ethnic groups. The disorder is often seen in families, among siblings or mothers and their children. The diagnosis is usually made between the ages of 20 to 50 years, but the incidence rises with age so that by age 80, approximately 8% of adults meet the American College of Rheumatology classification of fibromyalgia.”

That’s an astounding number of people.

Yesterday I was reading Stacey Chapman’s blog, Fighting With Fibro, and I came across a comment from my mother. She has her own blog called Strangely Peculiar (which completely fits her), and has fibromyalgia for decades. Seeing that comment really brought home the fact that fibro is hereditary, though I hadn’t know that til very recently.

It also brought to mind the time when I first discovered that I could help others feel better, and I wanted to try and do what I call, ‘sending light’, and called my mom to see if she wanted to be my guinea pig. Now my mom is just like Scully…woowoo isn’t her thing, but facts are. So I figured she would be the person to ask, rather than someone in my woowoo world, because I would get from-the-hip feedback.

She agreed, and I began to send. Within 10 minutes she called and asked me what I had done?, and I kind of freaked out. I thought I’d messed something up or hurt her, but it was the exact opposite. She felt better, her head was clearer, her pain had lessened…she was amazed and I was, too. She has a comment here on the website concerning another session, that still, to this day, makes me smile.

I admit that I haven’t sent to here in too long (sorry, Mom), but today is a chill day and I plan to do just that. If anyone else would like some light, click here to purchase a session – the best part is that you don’t have to go anywhere or do anything to receive the light! – and I’ll get back to you and we’ll set up a time. A 30-minute session is $35.00. If you have any questions, you can contact me.

BTW, my flare has lessened some, but is not completely gone. I’m relatively new to this level of severity, and I cannot imagine how those of you who have it 24/7 function; I would love to just crawl into bed and stay there. Major kudos to all of you!!!

Fighting the fight,

Pip 🙂

At A Loss For Words

Which is why I haven’t posted in so long. There’s too much to say, too much horror going on in the world and this country, too much…everything. What do you say to all that?

So I sit and retweet things on Twitter because others are saying it all and there’s nothing I can add to it. I cry and my heart breaks more and more each day. And don’t say “we aren’t this”. Obviously a vast amount of us ARE. And admit it, we always have been. We just sugarcoat things in history books and the news and to ourselves. Humans have an innate fear of things we don’t understand, and that turns to violence and rage and wars and murder and the list goes on and on.

We suck.

Not totally, but in many ways. Think about those little comments you say in your head when you see someone different, you know, the ones you would never say out loud because they aren’t nice things to say. It’s almost an unconscious act to have those thoughts. The problem is when people act upon them. Then the shit hits the damned fan and we end up with concentration camps (again…don’t forget that we’ve had them before; no ovens doesn’t mean they weren’t) and the government we have because they freaked out over a black president (what nerve he had!, they think)…

So…maybe not so much at a loss for words.

And this wasn’t even meant to be the focus of this post! I’m having a fibro flare like never before, and I am lost in the pain. Swimming in it. Someone get me the hell out of this pool, please. I’m reading fibro blogs, and something not in the slightest bit important jumped out at me: I like to read blogs, if they aren’t decades old, from the beginning if they interest me. Please, PLEASE put a calender widget in your sidebar! I read a post, hit ‘back’, and then have to scroll through the entire blog to get back to where I was. Over and over. ETA: discovered that if I read them via WordPress Reader, I can scroll through all the post. Win!

I’m just sayin…

BTW:

Want this shirt.

I’m too tired to eat properly, which isn’t helping at all, and I’m not sleeping enough, again, not helping, and I sit and read Twitter and blogs. I haven’t had a healing light client in months, which hurts my soul (honestly. I’m great at my day job, but it doesn’t feed my purpose in life), and this week, due to this flare, I won’t have a paycheck next week. Fun times.

OH, and I keep coming across people noticing that things they are doing online (and of course on their phones) are showing up as ads on FB and IG. Even from text messages. I re-upped IG recently because “everyone is on it and it’s the biggest marketing tool out there”…but those niggling feelings, coupled with our government now, has me planning to drop it again. Not that Twitter isn’t checking out our shit, too, I know. Stonekettle says that CounterSocial is a bullshit/Nazi/troll-free site, similar to Twitter, but you know how it goes…getting people to shift to something new is harder than getting that fake dude out of that office he didn’t actually win.

I think I’m out of words now. 😉
