Not everything is attributable to your disease.
Every corner of my body aches with delicious pain. Every muscle strains as I move with the reminder of how hard I worked at yoga yesterday. Can Fibromyalgia take this away? No. The syndrome adds pain, certainly, but it is a hurting kind of pain, a pain that puts one on alert and makes ones teeth grind. This is the pain of exercise. And I must know how to differentiate.
As someone who has only lived in pain for a year and with a diagnosis for less than a week, I am not the be all of Truth. But I do think this is a lesson best learned early on: separate your pain from your pain. And I thank the Lord that, in theory, I understand it (emphasis on 'in theory').
