Well, I’ve been contemplating a blog for about a year…had no clue how to start until now, thanks to a friend. I’m not ‘technically challenged’ by any means, just didn’t figure any one wanted to read about my random thoughts! I really just wanted a place that I could post all of the information that I’ve collected/learned about FBS, IBS, CFS in the last 2 years. Hopefully someone like me, that googled it the minute I was diagnosed, will happen upon my blog and know that even though it really does stink, there may be some relief and of course..HOPE!
I think the 1st year was truly just a denial period for me. I refused to stop what I loved doing, I refused to acknowledge that I had to slow down and relearn to do some things. I wasn’t going to let this ‘invisible’ thing take over my life. Boy was I wrong. A year of your life is much longer when you are in pain and denial, but I may not be where I am now without that long year.
