Five Challenges-Five Small Victories

Friday, April 27, 2012

Today's HAWMC prompt: 5 Challenges. 5 Small Victories. Make a list of the 5 most difficult parts of your health focus. Make another top 5 list for the little, good things (small victories) that keep you going.

The five most difficult parts of  living with fibromyalgia:
5. Forgetting things(the mind is a terrible thing to waste.)
4. Non-existent sex life(what's sex?) 
3. Depression(I hate feeling this way all the time.)
2. Constant, chronic pain(take take meds.)
1. Not being able to enjoy my grandson(I miss playing with him.)

Now for my five good things:
5. I still have some sanity left(my mind hasn't completely left the building yet.)
4. I am able to work(some days are still harder than others, but I'm blessed.)
3. I am able to get out and walk again(I love the feel of a cool, misty morning.)
2. I can still get in and out of the bathtub(good thing too, I wouldn't want to stink.)
1. I can still write(this is a thankful blessing.)
