We are to put together a time capsule about our specific health focuses, illnesses, stories to be opened in the year 2112. Of course I would provide news clippings of medicines that were used, treatments available, etc. All of the cold hard facts...but much more I would let my pictures, my old journals from when this illness really took hold, my personal story put a face on fibromyalgia. I would include my normal daily life. How I wrap into myself, iPod on & noise reducing headphones in-dad being my ears for listening for the nurse to call me back-what music I listened to in waiting rooms. The paintings I did when the pain got so bad I couldn't sleep. What movies & books I took lessons from in survival skills. Most important I would let my self portraits speak for themselves. They would be the face of what this does to a person, & I would include pics from before I got so sick as well, though I look mostly the same-but showing my life overseas, teaching, being a productive citizen of this country.
