if my butts gonna twitch...

I mind as well SHAKE IT!

I've made a million excuses why I don't exercise and why I'm down and depressed. I've let my anxiety take me to the brink of insanity and suicide. I've studied every twitch, muscle, nerve pain, every weird body symptom I could dig up. I've Dr.Googled to the point I thought I was smarter and better qualified to diagnose myself than any specialist. And then...

I decided I've HAD ENOUGH!!! So today I took the first step towards regaining my physical health and joined a Zumba group. If there's two things in the world I'm qualified to do its dance and shake my butt, and Zumba brings the two together. I survived the workout and my muscles are going nuts but I don't care. I'm pushing past the twitches, the fatigue, the depression and reclaiming my life. I'm believing my doctors when they say I'm okay..I can exercise, I can be healthy, I can live life to the fullest.

And my role here has changed from the panicked newbie to the recovering BFS patient. Not a victim, just a person who got stuck with a crappy but manageable disorder.
