You Gotta Have Friends!

on April 1, 2012

What a wonderful day I had yesterday!  Good friends, who I’ve missed so much, camaraderie, and support.  I had a Celebrating Home Party and if I forgot to invite you, I’m so sorry, and if I did invite you and you couldn’t make it, I’m sorry for that too.  Also, if you don’t know what that is you should Google it.  They have a very nice selection of items for your home and garden.  I’d be happy to recommend my Sales Consultant as well (I think that’s what they’re called).  It was so nice to just sit and chat with people who I haven’t seen in many months or many years.  And while I really have thought of myself as socially backward for years, I realized after yesterday that it isn’t so much me being nervous or shy but me imagining things that aren’t there.  Or maybe it was just the total acceptance from the ladies I had around me yesterday that gave me confidence.  There is something so refreshing about being around people who you know will tell you if your fly is open, or if you have a boog hanging out.  (Not that my fly was down, although I had jury-rigged my capris so they wouldn’t be so tight around my waist.  I was also mercifully boog-free)  So thank you for that ladies.  I may not have a lot of friends but I have awesome ones.  Quality, not quantity, yes?  I thought of taking a picture to commemorate the moment too late, after everyone had left.  That was my fibro kicking in.  I realized another important thing:  I can just be sometimes.  Not everyone is judging me and even if they are, that is something they have to deal with.  I don’t have to constantly grimace in pain, even though I feel pain.  I can try to smile once in a while.  I don’t have to succumb to my fatigue all the time.  I don’t have to constantly think about my fibro or mention it to others.  I can do other things.  This may seem like an obvious thing, but to me it was profound.  Fibromyalgia is something that’s going to be with me for the rest of my life.  I’m going to have to live with it.  Key word LIVE!

    We had so much fun!!! I loved coming to hang out with you. It was amazing how the time that had passed was non-existant! I am glad that you were able to relax and enjoy yourself, and if you wanted to grimace, feel free!!!! I thought about getting a picture too, because I recently found the picture of the three of us that we had taken at JCPenney for our parents our senior year. It would have been fun to put that up with the new one – “15 years later”. We have to do it again soon – a bbq with husbands and kids and everything. That was just too much time between seeing you.
