Fibro Life Confession #1

Things have changed for me a little since I developed full-blown fibromyalgia. There are a few things that I do now that I consider part of my "fibro life" that weren't a part of my life before. I find them a little funny, frankly...

For instance, Fibro Life Confession #1 would be this: I have 3 specific songs that I listen to, sing along with, and dance to every time I take a shower. I don't listen to these songs any other time, really, but during shower time. These are my "eff yeah, I'm a WARRIOR!" songs that get me jazzed about going another round with fibro, and the warmth of the shower that eases some of the aches and pains gives me the freedom to get my groove on in a way that I can't any other time.

I usually start out with "Try" by Pink, move on to "Part of Me" by Katy Perry, and finish up with the cancer survivor music video version of "Stronger" by Kelly Clarkson. If I've got time, or if I'm in the mood, I'll also toss "Shine" by Owl City in there, or "Shadows" by Lindsey Stirling. But without fail, I listen to my three warrior songs. (They also help me get up the energy and motivation that I need to make it through a shower. It's something fun to look forward to in something that I otherwise kind of dread these days.)
