Fibro Warriors get the message out and teach those who know nothing about our disease. I hope everyone is wearing purple today! I know I haven’t written on my Fibro journey lately but I will be sitting down and doing some writing the next few days!
All those with Chronic Pain and those that advocate take heed. Walgreens the pharmacy that treats us with Chronic Pain Disorders like subhuman garbage has begun the process of buying Rite Aid Pharmacy. From NBC Buisness News: “Pharmacy giant Walgreens Boots Alliance has reached a deal to buy rival Rite Aid, creating a merger of two of the nation’s largest drugstore chains. The deal announced Tuesday involved Walgreens buying Rite Aid for $9 a share, or $9.4 billion. The total size of the deal is $17.2 billion including acquired net debt, Walgreens said.”
Reach out to regulators and stop this merger! I’m officially leaving Rite Aid now, until this matter is settled.
Just Say No! Stand up for Chronic Pain Sufferers and Boycott both Pharmacies!
As many of you know I have an autoimmune disease called Fibromyalgia. I get up each day no matter my pain level and go to work. It is not easy but I get through each day.
Just because I have this awful disease doesn’t mean words do not hurt me any less. I will continue to be the best advocate for CPS/Fibro/Mental Health I can be, there is nothing anyone can do to stop me.
Time for “normal” people to stop pointing fingers and finding fault and get educated on what we deal with.
For my fellow Pain Warriors keep up the fight, you Are NOT alone! Spread some education around and if they don’t want to be educated then they can kiss our asses!
April is generally a busy time with Holy Days, birthdays (my Mom, both of my children and me) as well as enjoying the first few weeks of warm spring weather. However this year I’ve decided through much heartache to step back from my children.
I’ve been fighting to be in their lives for what seems like forever, only to be shown the door. My oldest, my baby girl turns 16 on the 30th of April and has not spoken to me since Christmas Eve 2013. My son turned 15 on the 9th of April, he doesn’t even claim me as his father. Even on Facebook he doesn’t claim my name but the name of the man his mother had an adulterous affair with (and its not his step-father).
This year I am nit sending cards or anything else. Every April from now on I will dedicate an entry in this blog for them.
Katlynn and Edward I still love you, think of you both often and I’m still here. I can’t and won’t compete with substitutes. When you are ready to learn the truth and be the adults you claim to be we will talk. Know my mind and heart has been aching for 14 years now, you both are missed and loved.

We all have our horror stories from our growing years…I’m going to try my best to tell mine. Continue reading Childhood Abuse
You will notice how my children and me have conveniently been forgotten and left out … Continue reading Father’s Obituary
This morning while I was at work I got a call from my first-cousin on my father’s side of the family. It was not good news, the man for whom I am named died this morning around 6AM.
It has been 15 or 16 years since I last saw you…way to long. No words I can write here or thoughts I can think can bring you back and change things. I’m sorry you never got to meet my children, your grandchildren. You will be missed Dad. May you and all the souls of the faithfully departed rest in peace.
We got a good amount and of snow overnight. When I shoveled the driveway this morning I fell on ice that under the snow pack. I landed on both knees and twisted my back. I’m thankful that’s all that happened.
I’m also thankful for my Tens Unit as well as Icy Hot Advanced Relief (stay tuned for a product review). Two 15 minute treatments to knees and back and I can finally move without wanting to put a hole in the wall.
Happy Christmas from my perch to yours! Hope you didn’t indulge to much! 😉
I had to work today in the midst of a fibro flair that came out of no where. I’ve been in bed since I got home at 5PM.
I did get a call from my bride tonight that perked me up. She’s away visiting relatives out of state and will be returning back to the perch after she gets done at work on Saturday.
I do have to work in the morning but wanted to let you all know I’ve thought about everyone today and pray that you had a wonderful day with your loved ones and family (that is after all the second gift of Christmas, the first being our Savior).
Chronic Pain & Intimacy
Today’s topic is one that is on the taboo side and not talked about that often even with people that do not have Chronic Pain. So put the kids to bed and get a pencil for some notes!
