Gentle Hugs is a phrase expressing that when a person has a disease like Lupus, Rheumatoid Arthritis, or Fibromyalgia, sometimes one can be in so much pain that even a hug hurts. I no longer feel that way, but I do remember a time when this certainly did apply. It’s hard for me to even imagine it now, strange enough…….and my story is quite unique. This is part of why I started this blog. But I mainly began this blog to open up discussion and to be one of the many people on the Internet who inspires.
