I am sorry to have been silent...I really have wanted to write daily. Not only do I feel I owe to my readers, but I really DO WANT TO WRITE daily. I live a fibroLIFE however, and must prioritize. When I "run out of day" before I write here, I feel like a failure and even question if I should be doing this at all. Yesterday, however, as I was exchanging "good mornings" with a dear friend, I mentioned that I hoped to write that day. His reply was short...but powerful. He simply said, "They need to hear from you." He did not chastise me for not writing daily. He did not tell me that "real bloggers set a schedule and stick to it". He did not tell me that what I say is of profound importance. He simply said, "They need to hear from you." I was cool and said, "Awe thanks!" but, in truth, alone on my sofa, I cried as I texted those words.
This same friend also told me a few days ago that all he knew about FMS was what I had written and he had read here. That statement made me realize that I had pages started but not yet completed and published which really needed to be completed... if I was going to keep blogging.
So...because of a friend...
Because of a friend kindly saying, in his own way, that what I was doing mattered...
You bet I am going to keep blogging! I am going to get better about reaching out to you all daily as well! I have also completed the page I had started on "What is Fibromyalgia?". Please click the link, give it a look, and pass it along to anyone you think might benefit from it
Because of a friend...y'all are stuck with me!
Thank you, Murph, my friend!
