I'm too tired to serve... NOT (finding my destiny through Fibromyalgia)

Serving others... A wonderful concept yet scary at the same time. I think this hop came along at a perfect time for me. I have Fibromyalgia and have found that I am not doing much service to others anymore due to feeling like crap and I am physically exhausted all the time, BUT I feel God calling me to begin a ministry for that exact purpose. I am starting a support group for other Fibro patients. Our nearest support group is nearly 1 hour away. That can be a long drive in the Michigan winters or when you hurt so bad that you just want to cry, NOT ride/drive for 1 hour. So I realize that not everyone reading this understands the ministry angle, but my beliefs are dear and precious to me. If I can do as God is calling me, help others AND get my fanny off the couch, then it is all good... Right????

By the way, I need a catchy name for this support group,any ideas??

Ol Fibro is a friend of mine! I totally understand everything you go thru to the point of "O my goodness, I have laid in the bed too long this morning!" I will keep you in my prayers!
