We all need something to lean on – Even The National Fibromyalgia Assn. Founder!

The National Fibromyalgia Association Fibro Focus Presentation:

Lynne Kennedy Mattallana, founder and president of the NFA arrived in a chauffeur driven wheelchair.   Considering her knee was crushed she was looking pretty good.

"Now that i have it, what will I do with it?"

I  brought the wonderful Cyndy De La Mar “cane creation” as part of my presentation but when I saw Lynne I knew that Cindy would want her to have it.

Cyndy De La Mar, Cane Builder Extrodinaire

Cindy made the cane out of yardsticks, PVC pipe and colored duct tape!  Remember the post?  Pretty clever I say.

"Maybe use it as a bar-bell for my rehab? It's heavy enough!"

"Use it to help educate doctors who still think Fibromyalgia is psychosomatic . . ."

"just lean on me!"

song lyrics by

Bill Withers – Lean on Me

Sometimes in our lives we all have pain
We all have sorrow
But if we are wise
We know that there’s always tomorrow

Lean on me, when you’re not strong
And I’ll be your friend
I’ll help you carry on
For it won’t be long
‘Til I’m gonna need
Somebody to lean on

Please swallow your pride
If I have things you need to borrow
For no one can fill those of your needs
That you don’t let show

Lean on me, when you’re not strong
And I’ll be your friend
I’ll help you carry on
For it won’t be long
‘Til I’m gonna need
Somebody to lean on

If there is a load you have to bear
That you can’t carry
I’m right up the road
I’ll share your load
If you just call me

So just call on me brother, when you need a hand
We all need somebody to lean on
I just might have a problem that you’d understand
We all need somebody to lean on

Lean on me when you’re not strong
And I’ll be your friend
I’ll help you carry on
For it won’t be long
Till I’m gonna need
Somebody to lean on

Lean on me…

  1. Love your post and the song lyrics. I was wondering how Lynne hurt her knee? I suppose you would have said so in your post if you wanted to, but thought I would ask just in case you overlooked mentioning it.

    Thanks for a great and uplifting blog that I’m reading regularly now. I especially like the pictures! 😉
