    Today started out as a really good day.

    She woke me up at six this morning, telling me she missed me, if I could stay up for her. I didn't mind of course. We were texting for a bit, and then she calls me. I haven't heard her voice or seen her since July. It was nice. We got on Skype for about an hour, and she went to...

    Moments like these I'll sear in my brain.

    I'll remember when I had absolutely no one by my side. Left alone, surrounded by strangers, just hoping someone would ask me "why?" I will remember when I called you and received no answer. When you made fun of my pain and caused pure anger... So when the day comes and what you...

    Because that's something

    that I can control. We cant control how sensitive we are, you might take different approaches at how you handle it but you cant control the way you feel, or the way people perceive us.. We aren't able to control people who are cruel.. You can talk with them, but that will only...

    The past still hits me like a tsunami,

    but it never hits my smile. I don't pretend to be okay, I remind my self and others to be okay.

    I have severe fibromyalgia.

    I also three teenage sons and a disabled husband so guess who comes last? I very rarely take care of "me". I keep going until I just can't go anymore, then I just lay in bed in excruciating pain. No one understands. I really don't think anyone cares.

    Even though there are times

    where my life seems to be in the dumps I manage a smile on my face. My first heartbreak, yeah I cried tears and it was hard to look at him but I manage to smile. I fight back tears and swallow my fears if that's all it takes to get through one day. Sometimes I'd lock myself in...

    Masks. Pretty masks. Cover the hideous.

    Cover the hatred. Cover the pain. Cover the feeling.

    You'll never know pain

    until you look into the eyes of someone you love and they look away.

    I smile through the pain

    and refuse to show weakness to my enemys. I bottle up my pain and put on a smile. I would rather hide my pain than show it to people who dont give a ****.

    I try really really hard to stay positive

    and smile through it all. But there are periods when it's too much and I can't stop the tears. Why can't the medicine work better and why does the MS act up? I hope this too shall pass. Still sucks that tolerable is the best I'll get.
