How many of you have seen the movie Julie and Julia? I need to add this to my list of favorite movies; for each time I see it, I enjoy it and catch something new. I always get a kick out of the way Julie addresses the readers of her blog, so if I call you dear readers from time to time, please indulge me and know that you are dear to me, and I cannot think of a more apt term to let you know I cherish you.
Two illnesses that often walk hand-in-hand: Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

So, Dear Readers, I think I am finally learning how to leave well enough alone. Those of you who are learning to balance your lives, know exactly what I mean. When you are extra fatigued and about to walk two steps back instead of one step forward in your health life, it is time to say, "NO!". And I did mean to shout, because I have over-done too many times.
I did not write this to complain. I just want you to know you are not alone; and I want the world to know that people with chronic or invisible illnesses do not have these illnesses because they are malingerers or hypochondriacs. These are real illnesses.
And finally, I would like to hear from you. There are many invisible illnesses, that are chronic, and change one's life forever. If you hate posting comments on blogs, I will soon have a Facebook Page up and running. God bless you and give you peace.
P.S. I will try to get the FB group up tonight.
And for those of you who might be wondering, I am going to get back to the flybaby series
of blogs. I will catch you up on what I have been doing to get out of my moving mess, and I
still want to get all those daily routines down.
