Where did the time go?

Gosh, I just decided I needed to start working on my blog and when I
seen the date of the last time I was actually on this blog I gasped. 
On March 25, 2014 I did my last posting until now November 1, 2014
Where did the time go?
I find living with Chronic pain tends to set up many road blocks.
I find one day I can handle something and the next day I can't handle
anything. When I first made this blog I had the best of intentions. I have
found Fibromyalgia sure has a way of reminding me I am not in charge
of things like I want to be anymore. I find I get distracted so easily and
lose my focus. I miss my straight forward clarity! :(

I have so many ideas and plans and somehow they dissipate into the air
and sometimes they are never thought about again.
If you have been following me I am sorry I disappeared.
One can never predict how time is going to go when doing anything.

Today, November 1st, 2014 I plan on reestablishing my blog idea again.
I say again, well, because it is again. I somehow keep re-starting over
and over again. I do know all of you that suffer know what I mean about

re-starting the same project!

On a good note! I am back, trying again! :)

~Be good to you, until later, Cindy

Please don't JUDGE!

Please don't judge!
Every single day I get up and try my best.
Some days are better and some days are worse.
Some days I can do a little and some days I can't do much at all.
Some days I can put a smile on my face and some days I can't.
Some days I can get dressed and some days I stay in my pajamas.
Some days it takes all my courage to push onward.
Some days it takes all my energy to accomplish anything.
Some days it takes all my strength to battle my own body.
Some days I just want support.
Some days I just want encouragement.
Some days I just want understanding.
Today I don't want to be judged!

Difficulty Swallowing (Dysphagia)

 What is difficulty swallowing (dysphagia)?

Difficulty swallowing is also called dysphagia. It is usually a sign of a problem with your throat or esophagus camera.gif—the muscular tube that moves food and liquids from the back of your mouth to your stomach. Although dysphagia can happen to anyone, it is most common in older adults, babies, and people who have problems of the brain or nervous system.
There are many different problems that can prevent the throat or esophagus from working properly. Some of these are minor, and others are more serious.

If you have a hard time swallowing once or twice, you probably do not have a medical problem. But if you have trouble swallowing on a regular basis, you may have a more serious problem that needs treatment. 

What causes dysphagia?

Normally, the muscles in your throat and esophagus squeeze, or contract, to move food and liquids from your mouth to your stomach without problems. Sometimes, though, food and liquids have trouble getting to your stomach. There are two types of problems that can make it hard for food and liquids to travel down your esophagus:

  1 The muscles and nerves that help move food through the throat and esophagus are not working right.

  2 Something is blocking your throat or esophagus.

  • What are the symptoms?

  • Dysphagia can come and go, be mild or severe, or get worse over time. If you have dysphagia, you may:
  • Have problems getting food or liquids to go down on the first try.
  • Gag, choke, or cough when you swallow.
  • Have food or liquids come back up through your throat, mouth, or nose after you swallow.
  • Feel like foods or liquids are stuck in some part of your throat or chest.
  • Have pain when you swallow.
  • Have pain or pressure in your chest or have heartburn.
  • Lose weight because you are not getting enough food or liquid.

Gosh, I Miss - Want - Need - SLEEP!
One thing that is very hard for me to adjust to is the lack of sleep I get. I find it ironic when I was younger I took sleep for granted and now I yearn for it. It is no wonder we are all so fatigued.
Lack of sleep and pain do not mix well.
Bring on the Sleep!
Blessings, Cindy

I support Awareness!

Moment of Gratitude!

I wanted to take a moment and share my overwhelming Gratitude for being Nominated for 9 Health Activist Awards and being a Finalist for 2.

1532 Endorsements
Thank you EVERYBODY!
I am beyond grateful for any kind of recognition
we get to get awareness out there so others know they are not alone. I took some time today and thought about how far FibroColors has come. It is sometimes incomprehensible that one thought could lead to such a great thing. Because of that one thought I am able to get awareness out there with the help of every single person on the page.
I wanted to capture this in this Blog so I can remember what a great moment this is.
