I've Lost A Friend

Sunday morning the sadness and pain in Michelle's life took over in a deep depression that I hope I never know. I met Michelle on-line in a Facebook Fibromyalgia support site. The loss is unique to me and many others on the site. It is the first time I've lost a friend that I've known only through her words. We communicated daily concerning our Fibromyalgia health. Our symptoms, whether our pain had increased or we were having a better day. The medications we took, what worked for us and what didn't. We discovered the names of medications in the United States had different names in other countries. We laughed at the different sayings from other countries. We talked about our families, our blessings and our worries. We all talked about how we were coming to the end of a month and money was tight. We talked about everything and sometimes silly nothings. Like today, we are learning how to make hearts.

Michelle and her family will be in my heart. Michelle's pain has eased. Her family will miss her dearly as will I and my Fibromyalgia sisters.


  1. I am so sorry to hear about your friend Michelle, our prayers are with you and her family.

  2. So sorry. Maybe this is an opportunity to share with your grandson.

  3. Thank you Heather and Seth you are a smart Uncle and Son.
