Fibromyalgia Poster

I pray that one day other people will really learn to believe how this is.

I just discovered your website and already I am a fan. As I know you are modest and God-fearing, you will only give glory to God, as I am certain I would also. I do not suffer from fibromyalgia but I do not at all question your pain, depression or the actuality of your sickness.

You see, I have two children, seven and eleven. I homeschool and love homeschooling. I am certain, absolutely certain this is what God wants me to do. I question him often because of my circumstances and He always confirms what I know to be true.

I have also been "blessed" with the gift of chronic pain. After requiring a total hysterectomy at age 39, I was left with unbearable migraine headaches DAILY. I can identify greatly with your words and the words of the anonymous writer. I feel as if some dear person has given my feelings flight, freedom, and total expression.

I am now also, 44. I depend on God greatly! I am so in love with my king, only He can know the depths of my love and adoration. I have learned so much from chronic pain, especially how to have sympathy. For the pain leaves me isolated,lonely and very often misunderstood.

I do not look for sympathy or beg for answers. I just want to be understood. I do not want to be looked upon as a hypochondriac or one who craves attention from pain. And I do not want anyone telling me I cannot homeschool my children. I love them more than any teacher. I love God and depend on Him. He is the source of History, Science, Math, Language and all subjects. My account to to my Lord only. He is the one who knows all, understands all and knows what is best for my children. If I fall short in academics for my children, I will, by the grace of God, not fall short in the wisdom of my Creator. Wisdom is what God commands. Wisdom is sometimes the best I have to offer. What I fall short on, I depend on God to fill in. After all, I am certain He has called me to teach my children. He has entrusted that responsibility to me and i have the faith to know He will see me through. Thanks so much for your encouragement despite, DESPITE, your pain.

One who understands
