Having IBM (Inclusion Body Myositis) means coming to grips with a constantly changing life. The perpetual curtailment of activities requires that you rise above the plight. You need to constantly reinvent yourself in order to adapt to yet another limitation and, at the same time, acknowledge the grieving process that comes with these changes.

It means learning to let go and yet go on with your life.
