No more excuses!

No More Excuses!

2 months ago my mother was diagnosed with a form of ALS (Lou Gehrig's disease.) It's a disease of the nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord that control voluntary muscle movement. In time it has the ability to render one without the ability to move, although the brain is not affected.

Bad News...

Still, as I speak to her, I find myself pushing her to move more, eat better, and to absolutely not give in to the self pity party she deserves. Sometimes I speak to her with little sensitivity, I call back to apologize. Still, she's my Mom and I want her later years in life to be comfortable, not like this. But, If I let her slide into despair, then, it's really over.

So with fair warning, If I can attempt to motivate my 70 year old Mom to "not make excuses" or "feel sorry for herself" - well then - you, the one reading this, who most likely suffers from fibromyalgia, you - will not be held to a different standard.

It's 2017, and as little as we know about fibromyalgia, it's still more than what we knew in 2008. We know without a shadow of a doubt, that exercise and diet, are still the only viable answers to the pain. However slow you start, you must start.

No more excuses, the ball is in your court, will you carry it or pass it. And, as far as how others are treating you, or not treating you - who really cares?? It's your life, take it by the horns and make something beautiful happen.

No more excuses...
