Life's Not A Fairy Tale!

When you live with Fibromyalgia...

This past weekend I took my girls to see the new Cinderella movie.  My Tiffany and I dressed up in our Cinderella dresses and my youngest June went in her favorite shirt and jeans.  We were headed out for a girl's day out to have fun and make memories.  I smiled through the pictures, the drive to the theater,  getting into the movies, buying popcorn and goodies and through the movie, we had a fabulous time. What I did not tell my girls was that I was in the throes of a Fibro flair up and I was hurting,  exhausted and it was all I could do to smile. Instead I smiled the entire time and I pushed through and we made great memories.  

I am so happy that we went and I treasure our time together and I could never replace those memories had I missed the chance to make them with my girls.  I could have told them that I was hurting and that I just couldn't find the strength to go but I didn't and really how could I have told them.  Look at their smiling faces and they had so much fun.  They loved the movie and so did I and I almost forgot how bad I was hurting at times during the movie.  Thankfully the chairs were comfortable and the low light helps (light actually makes me hurt)  and the air was just right (any stimuli that is uncomfortable makes me hurt more).  So the room itself was perfect and did not add to my discomfort.  

Life is not a fairy tale but for one day this past weekend we did make a little magic and my girls and I had a fairy tale day, they need never know that I was hurting so bad.   I have given them a beautiful memory forever and that is priceless.  No one can ever take that away from them or from me.  For on this day I fought back, I held back my tears and I took my two sweethearts out for the day. 

I love you Tiffany and June with all my heart. 

Love, Mommy
