We Are In The Same Boat

"We may live on separate shores, but in the end, we're all in the same boat"

Author Unknown

Isn't this the truth? I enjoy communicating on Facebook. I keep up with my friends and family. Part of my friends group, are those with chronic diseases like Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue, Lupus, Lime Disease, Sjogrens and Rheumatoid Arthritis, just to name a few. These friends are scattered throughout the world! I talk with people from South Africa, England, Japan and all over the United States. We live on "separate shores" but we're all in the same boat." We share the unimaginable life of chronic pain. No one understands our pain and the obstacles we face daily as well as another. We become a family. I thank God every day for my computer and the ability to communicate with my brothers and sisters in the same boat.


  1. Me too! I am so thankful for my online friends.

  2. That's so true! I'm so incredibly thankful for all the great ways we can communicate online now! I appreciate your regular comments on my Facebook SO much, you are such a blessing! I hope to keep up better in the new year as things slow down. Have a blessed, relaxed weekend!

  3. Deb, I had an appointment with my psychologist yesterday and said exactly the same thing, my friends live insde my computer. I spend a lot of time online but it is my view to the outside...makes so much sense. I love facebook, I have connected with so many and you all keep me sane!


  4. So glad I found this blog........ I often feel alone in this world of fibro.

    No one can imagine the pain we endure day in a day out. I find myself downplaying my illness because I feel I need to be tough and not complain.

    Thanks for this blog!!!!!
