|Have you ever noticed that children know exactly|

They have hung on to life, trying to work with bodies that fight their every effort to contribute to the lives of their family and community. The people I know with Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome are not layabouts. They are participators and leaders, who have fought to take care of their families, do their jobs, volunteer in their communities, and minister in and out of their churches. Time after time, they have fought to push past their limits, because they are strong in spirit, and perhaps a little stubborn about giving into a inconvenient, pesky illness that is in the way of their duties.
