The past day has had its ups and downs, but I am feeling positive this morning - after being up most of the night - after being quite sick in the evening. I'm gathering data regarding fibromyalgia and finding many helpful pieces of information. This is giving me hope, and inspiration for my plan to focus on good self-care. A Mayo Clinic doctor named Amit Sood was quoted thus: "We may not be able to stop the pain, but there are ways to stop the suffering." This makes good sense to me and I hope I can remember it when I need to. The view to the East was glorious to my dog and me when we went out at dawn. The air is crisp. The birds are singing their new songs.
