Fibromyalgia - Myth or Menace

I woke up one morning and literally just could not get out of bed. I was in so much pain that I couldn't move at all.  The pain was so intense that tears streamed down my face without me even crying. It was then that I realised that my chronic inflammation might not be inflammation at all. 

It didn't happen overnight though. A year ago I had serious reconstructive surgery on my hand after a mountain bike accident. It took six months' physio until I was able to use my hand again, so pain was just an everyday occurrence which didn't really bother me, since I have a very high pain threshold.   

But as time went by, the pain became worse and spread through my entire body. My muscles and joints were hurting and getting stiff, in the mornings I battled to walk up straight, and I was constantly exhausted. Every time went hiking or exercised, I was wiped out for a few days with - according to the doctors - inflammation and bursitis.

Moving on...

Ever wished that you could get rid of an annoying ex in a nice manner, but they just won't let go? I am no Bieber fan, she's just not my cup of tea, but I really had a good laugh when I heard this song, and with a few tweaks (mostly correcting his bad grammar - eye roll), I'm sure anyone will enjoy this too!

For all the times that you rained on my parade
And all the places you got in using my name
You think you broke my heart, oh boy for goodness sake
You think I'm crying on my own, well I ain't

To love, or not to love. That is the Question...

"The best love is the kind that awakens the soul; that makes us reach for more, that plants the fire in our hearts and brings peace to our minds. That’s what I hope to give you forever." - The Notebook
If you would like to explore the highs and lows of love, relationships and solitude with me, please feel free to comment and discuss this topic with me. I am by no means an expert, but I truly believe in love. I just don't know how to define love, since I believe too many people confuse it with other things, like attachment or need. It is wonderful to be loved and be free at the same time.

Religion ?

I have long been a believer that more people has been senselessly killed instead of saved under the flag of Religion. I do however believe in God, and the importance of having a personal relationship with God. 

I am always humbled by God's grace and mercy, and have seem too many miracles to not believe in something bigger than ourselves. I love travelling, and I feel closest to God in nature, where I am confronted with the vastness of the universe, and my own mortality.

Whether you are a believer or not, I would like to share some of my views and experiences with you. Feel free to agree or disagree with me by sharing in the discussion.
