I got these images from the “Life after the semicolon” page on Facebook. It is a good resource for those of us who deal with depression, suicide, or any mental illness really. Check it out. I recommend keeping these images on your phone or tablet so they are handy for you to do a quick self-check from time to time.
Here is another one. Kinda similar to the first but not exactly the same.
Hang in there beautiful people. Remember you can always reach me by dm or by email. I am here if you need to talk to someone but I am not a medical professional. Do your best and reach out for help if you need it. You got this!!!
So here I was perfectly happy plugging along in my not so perfect world totally oblivious to the fact that I was about to cease to exist. Yep. That’s right. So it started with a couple of texts from friends asking if I had posted a video on my timeline that looked suspicious. I replied no and quickly posted that I had not posted it please do not open it. Then I set about trying to remove it and to figure out how I had been hacked.
Well, stupid me clicked on a link FB had on their support section that said Help! I have been hacked! or something like that. I clicked and it talked me through deleting the video and changing my password. But THEN it logged all of my devices that were logged into my FB account out of FB so everyone using it would have to log back in with the new password. Fine, I know the password.
So, I go to log back in on my phone and uh oh I have two factor authorization turned on. It is going to send me a code on my phone to enter and make sure it is me. Fine. Do it already so I can get back to business. Well, I wait and wait and wait and wait. No code. I resend it. No code. I look at the other ways to log in. They have the correct phone number. I ask the boys for help. I ask my brother for help. Can’t ask FB for help because they have NO customer service!! UGH!!
To make a long story short. After two weeks of begging and pleading with my phone, computer, and iPad….I could not get logged back into my account. The one I had used since my youngest was 3 so 11 years worth of pictures and memories. I am the admin for several groups. The ONLY admin for several groups which are now crippled because no one can approve new members or do anything that requires an admin. I cannot access my blog page. I cannot even post on the page to tell the people who follow me that I have a new page now. It is ridiculous. I am starting over. I am not one of Facebook’s biggest fans right now. I will not be bragging on them anytime soon. My followers can find my new blog FB page by clicking on the social media links or following this link. https://www.facebook.com/fibroscoop1/
Guys, I mean guys, I am so honored. This weekend I reached 700 followers on Instagram. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! It just blows my mind. Not only does that mean that there are 700 people with nothing better to do than read my posts (kidding) but just think a minute…. those are 700 people who have a chronic illness or who love someone with a chronic illness. Minus the ones who just wanna see cute pictures of Princess Sophie of course!! Seriously though, I want to thank each and every one of you for sharing this journey with me and I hope that I have helped you in some small way at some point. Whether I made you laugh or cry or say, “Yes, me too!” and feel not quite so alone….. I am glad that I can be here for you. I am always available by DM if you need someone to talk to. I know how isolated you can feel. I know how sometimes you just feel like giving up. So message me if you need someone to talk to. Or if you have specific questions. I hope to do more informational posts in the future. I just feel like there are so many of those out there and I prefer to let you see what life with fibro is really like and try to lend support to you when you need it. Try to make you laugh. Try to inspire you. Don’t forget. WE are WARRIORS!!!
