Hello everyone,
My name is Arlene and I'm 47 years old. I am so happy to have found this place. A soft place to fall...what a wonderful thought. I have Fibromyalgia w/ Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Rhumatoid Arthritis, Re-occuring Shingles and I also have seizures. I struggle with guilt because I have changed over the 26 years that I've had FMS & CFS.
My family misses the wife and mother they once had and it's as hard for them as it is for me. I know that there is a lesson hidden in all this pain but so far I haven't found it...but I will. I used to be like a mighty wind..all 4' 11" of me. I kept my house spotless and took care of everyone...but myself. Sometimes I think this is my body getting even with me for all those years I didn't take care of it.
But life goes on and I take it one day at a time. Some days I laugh, some days I cry and some days I laugh just to keep from crying LOL. Gotta have a sense of humor through it all. If I can ever be of help to anyone I'm only an email away lenearcn@gmail.com
I'm determined to lose some weight by changing the way I eat and by doing something I haven't done in a long time...exercise the right way. With some of the medical probs I have it truly is as the old saying goes...Use it or Lose it!
I can use all the support I can get so I invite you to support me and I'll do the same for you. Many blessings to all of you!

Always Arlene @-)-)------

Be sweet and keep smiling!

P.S. I want to say "thank you" to EVERYONE who has sent me sparkgoodies and prayers. I try to thank each of you seperately but sometimes I might not be able to get online for several days at a time and I get very behind so please forgive....

You will never know just how much each of them lift my spirit and put a smile on my face and in my heart. I love getting them almost as much as I love sending them and I'm sorry if I've left anyone out of saying "THANK YOU"

Always here if you need me *BIG GENTLE HUGS*

My Goals:
I feel so blessed to be a part of SP. Through it and the many friends that I've made, since I've become a part of my teams I hope to learn how to live healthier and be happier.

I am trying to learn how to exercise again without harming my body. Just being able to talk with other people that are going through the same medical problems and also emotional support is something else I've found here.

For more than 20 years my body has been slowly deteriating and the pain has been growing. I want to be more of a blessing than a burden. I want to be able to go outside my home more. For the last few years, the pain and the crippling effects, from my buddy Fibromyalgia and the entourage that follows it, I have, for the most part, been a prisoner in my own home. I want to be more like the woman I used to be...I used to be like the mighty rushing wind but now I'm hardly a breeze on my good days...in a nut shell;

"I want to learn how to live again".

I c

My Program:
I'm trying to eat healthier. I'm trying to get more "good" rest. I would say more sleep but with insomnia and restless leg syndrome, you get sleep anytime you can.

I've recently started using my areo pilates machine. It doesn't hurt my joints or muscles like some of the other exercises I've tried do.

Personal Information:
Hey, I'm Arlene Corn and I'm 47 years old. I live in Alabama and I'm the mother of one beautiful, 23 year old daughter named Britney Nichole. She's truly a blessing and has the voice of an angel and she owns my heart.
I've been married for 28 years. I was a hairdresser for 15 years until I wasn't physically able to do it any longer...I miss it...I've always been a "people" person and I miss having that part of my life.

Other Information:
I have two favorite movies that my daughter and I used to watch together; "Sound of Music" and "Dirty Dancing". I'm not much of a reader except for the bible. I love to do crafts when I'm able. I don't usually toot my own horn but I'm really creative and usually never us patterns. Be fore I got so sick I was learning to paint....on canvas, not crafts...I know how to paint that sort of thing but I really want to learn how to be better on canvas. That's my greatest goal, I guess I should have written that above.,,huh

My birthday is July 3, 1961 and I love gifts so if you ever feel the need to b...oops, I shouldn't ask for gifts now should I...LOL

    Hi Arlene, I noticed no one had written on your page for awhile. I just wanted to let you know that I had read your page. You had sent me something quite awhile ago and I am not good about keeping up or writing. We seem to have quite a bit in common I noticed.

    I just had knee replacement surgery 4 months ago and I had lapband surgery the end of November. I am trying to get thinner to keep from having any more surgeries. I am a little concerned though as I have had some type on neurological problem for over 10 years, never been diagnosed though. I live on lots of pain meds...considered a chronic pain patient but I have fired all the doctors except my Orthopedic dr and main dr who gives me all my meds. Anyway enough about me.

    I just wanted to say hi and let you know that I would like to befriend you.....That sounded funny but I hope you know what I mean.
    I am a grandma of 5 and have 3 sons. I have been married for over 40 years. Have been a believer since 1983 and my husband became a believer 7 years later. We have quite a testimony as I am sure you do too.

    Well I have got to get off this computer now and go get ready for Church......I hope you have a chance to write back and I don't miss it.
    If I do keep writing. Hugs and Praying for you. Dayna emoticon emoticon emoticon

    You could write on my blog or email me a dmayhew@cox.net
