Three Things Thursday

I just recently discovered this fun blog hop.  Don't know how I missed it before.  So fun....can't wait to start.  Each week, I will share 3 things about myself with you.

1.  When I first graduated high school, I didn't want kids.  Then life happened and I changed my mind.  We were going to wait 5 years after we got married to have kids, but changed our minds again.  Now we have four kiddos, and though I feel like screaming at the top of my lungs on a daily basis, wouldn't change a thing.

2.  I am a big fan of cheesy Weather movies on the Sci-Fi Channel.  When they have movie marathons on Saturdays and they are all those crazy weather movies....I just want to camp out all day on the couch and watch how corny they are.  Joe and I take turns that we are like Mystery Science 3K.  

3.  I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia 12 years ago after undergoing MRIs, cat scans, numerous blood tests.  The doctor kept telling me it had to be MS, but there was not evidence.  The diagnosis was hard back then for most doctors.  Many didn't believe it was a real condition.  I was finally diagnosed, by a chiropractor.  Of course a diagnosis didn't really help me, because then I became a walking experiment for doctors.  I let life get the best of me and suffered horribly.  I still get black moods and stress makes it worse.  This is one reason that I am working hard at keeping an exercise program in place to keep myself going.  I have found if I let this go, I start losing a battle in my mind to get going each day.  

Linking up with other Moms at What's Going on in Heidi's Head.....
