I apologize for the visual look of this post. I have spent alot of time trying to include spacing with no luck.
"There is a place in you where there is a perfect place.
There is a place in you where nothing is impossible."
A Course in Miracles
I think this quote comes under the heading of learning to have confidence in yourself. I was fairly confident prior to my diagnosis of Fibro and Chronic Fatigue. At that time, my confidence went in the toilet!
I know for sure (I sound like Oprah!!!) that my God and my family love me unconditionally. After that, how I fit in this world is shaken. I know I will be ok...I'm still "in there." I'm sensitive to how I will accomplish every day tasks; how I interact with others; what and when I eat. Should I drive or does my Fibro Fog cause distractions? The list is endless.
I'm working on regaining my self confidence. Learning who I am, because I feel different. This is a very personal journey. I can feel my progress. When my pain level increases, my confidence is shaky. I question my decisions and responses. Sometimes it's two steps forward, one backward. I'm gaining, but only baby steps.
My goal is to continue working on my confidence so it will allow me to try anything again. Well, almost "anything."
I wonder if other Fibro/Chronic Fatigue sufferers write "To Do" lists. They help me see my accomplishment.
