Friends love, and if they support us in hard times, they are angels. We asked our “Why Fibromyalgia” forum the question that a friend sent you when you were sick. Many of the members took part and spoke to us about their best moments.
Here is what community Shares with us:
1. Kathleen Brockway: My neighbor down the road and his partner looked after my five dogs when I was hospitalized last summer. They took my entire bedroom as well, painted its walls and cleaned the tapestry. Then they rearranged the furnishings to make using a wheelchair simpler. Each week they took me to shop for food before I recovered properly to drive.
2. Tifney Schoenfeld: The best thing that stuck in my time is my one and only friend. My energy spent time with me. No hopes, no strings, no culpability. Means to me above all.
3. Morgan Nation: This helps me to have my room and understanding, moments when I don’t want to talk with someone but yet love me the same. I can feel if I have an episode, even if I do not realize it myself, and I have to go out of bed instead of lieting alone cry and have awful thoughts.
4. Kayle Rose Mannino: A gluten-free, milk free cookbook was offered to me by my friend at Christmas time. The idea that I have to get the cause of fibro is, however, a nice book, mean the world for me.
5. Sureyma Tapia Wozny: a little electric blanket that hooks in and warms up to the USB drive. That was my hubby for me.
6. Connie Campbell: I ‘d like my children to sit down / watch to relax.
7. Emily Harvey Lacroix: A book recording was really helpful when I could not read to recover from my suffering. It helped me to sleep as well.
8. Jessica A Walker: A cooked meal, I had one friend who could do that for me, and it was so great that when my hubby was over the seas it was so hard for me to work and cook for my children.
9. Christine Catalina: listening; listening and planned home visits that I can’t do when I’m sick Home
10. Jackie Rivera: A nice dinner invite her home with clothes and open ears. It’s time to hear moaning and laughing. She didn’t know the meaning of that for me
11. Emmy Breese: My mum, daddy and brother are all helping me carry bags, lift other things for me, my girlfriends support me and my time is important for me, and I am the most supportive of all my boyfriend never moans when I moans, he just hugs me, and makes me laugh, He ‘s trying best to rub my neck and shoulders while one time his thumbs used him for digging my deltoids. I haven’t stopped him because I didn’t want him to feel bad, however I did not feel that the next boy I felt the bruise, that’s when I said to him he was sorry because we both broke laughs afterwards! The company is only the best donation ever.
12. Abigail Formas: I was always liked, wanted, enhancement and used by my best friend Farrah, slippers and coloring books. But when I was sick in the hospital the best gift she gave me was the non-materialist side of friendship. Over the last two years it would help me to nearly every admission, and we are just 20 (me) and 17 (her): She would lie in bed with me, help me walk to a toilet, motivate me to eat if I can not, force me to walk with her into a pantry (to grab shhh snacks) when I was not going out of my house. Farrah is a two times Osteosarcoma survivor herself so she just gets it – her emotional talent, and not expecting me to “entertain” her on her travels, I love this girl so very much!! I love her so much.
13. Take to a float tank Celeste Easterday. Was the first kind of gesture, so caring and truthful, that I had some physical relief that somebody had done for me and my six diseases since I was diagnosed at the beginning of 20 years ago.
14. Meaghan Morrison: I believe your soul is drained of fibromyalgia.
I thank my husband today for putting a fire in my eyes on my fun idea of enjoying my morning cuppas without too much trouble? (In my neck and shoulder, I have a kink)
15. Lisa Argiropulos: Somebody was cleaned for me in my home … the best of all!!
16. Lisa Harvin: I hurt bad and difficult to stand on the days. I used an old bar stool to sit down to make ECT cooking dishes. Kitchen services. It was taken and redidden by my boyfriend. It was white and rolling wheels were put on. Completely amazing. I just luv it. I luv it.
17. Mine’s not anything specific, but a friend of mine recently wouldn’t allow me to move my kitchen floor. Tiffany Blake. It is by no means a big room, but she took it and made me sit. And recently, when she came back into my life, she found out that I have Fibromyalgia and other conditions. It’s only surprising to me that I never had before that, and she knew that I couldn’t do it myself.
18. The best thing I ever received was a pot of lifeloved memories from a friend that I knew throughout my life, my very best friend. Jennipher Crowther-Brown The jar was full of small folded posts and everyone remembered that we were friends in it all of our years. Through, encouraging and encouraging quotes combined with memories. Two years ago I was in the hospital, and felt very much that after major pelvic surgery I couldn’t go and was really fighting. It made my day, week, month and year even, and gave my eyes glad tears! This little bottle!
19. I have one a day and it’s healed my discomfort. Abigail Bassett: Advice for tea.
20. I got a friend who gave me cards, several cards, while at the same time I was making Chemo and Fibro. Most of them had angel dust, some were sweet, some prayers, but all made me feel nice and good. Kathy was an angel of this nature!
21. Jen Sanchez-Santiago: The light, the pressure on a normal color. A foam mattress Ben is in your joint and body curves and thanks to my niece it will be a blessing.
22. Suzanne EnJimmy: Set up a blow-up pool 2 meters by 1 meter, fill my entire balcony with warm and cold water buckets, and then help me unload my underwear and see if floating helped to make pain better by keeping me in my axes. And frankly, to be frank. It just worked for a short moment! I don’t know whether because of all that love, because it didn’t encourage me to drown or float, but because it calmed me down.
23. Kelly Baughman: The best gift he gave me was my hubby. My best friend. Right after I learned about autumn 2016, I was fixing myself to a convention on essential oils. I did a lot of crafts and arts at that time. I asked him to get rid of all my things just before I left for Utah. He didn’t get rid of my stuff when I was out, so when I got home, he told me I had a changes. You have to do as much as possible from now until next September, but I took him on and entered what I made at the State Fair. I didn’t win anything, but I won in my book, because he helped me see that I’ve got a fibro but that doesn’t mean I have to give up all I just have to take something slower. Continue to use it and I can take my time.
24. Cynthia Hamilton: Her time, her comprehension. She was studying all the drugs, supplements and knowledge she was able to find to help me
25. Terri Allen: Bulgarian pillow of wheat which can be chilled or cooked.
