We all have an invisible disease. We all have Fibromyalgia. We don’t look sick. Some days are wonderful and we feel fine. But most days, hidden behind the smile, we are hurting. We may be able to participate in that activity today, but tomorrow we may be completely bedridden. It’s random, unpredictable. It robs us of our lives slowly each day. There is no cure and little understanding or awareness. Most “pills” only work for a brief time, if at all. We learn to modify our behavior, to adjust our actions praying that the trip to the store won’t completely wipe us out for two days. That the walk around the block won’t mean we are up all night in pain.

Here’s yesterdays Black and White Outfit. I wound up ripping the skirt at work and had to staple it back together!! LOLOLOL I was dressed very conservative as the new Colonel was doing a walk=through to meet everyone. Unfortunately he had to postpone until Thursday. Guess I’ll put off re-pinking my hair until later this week!!
Don’t forget about the Black and White Party!! Send me a picture of you in your Black & White outfit with a link to your post by Saturday June 8th at firstname.lastname@example.org. I’ll be showing all the participants next Sunday for Visible Monday!!
