Thanks everyone for your replies! It's good to know that some of you don't have depression either.
Kelly71 - I'm not against meds at all - it's just that so far I've been able to deal. I have a great job and I'm able to take a day off here or there if I dont' feel good. That's interesting what you say about the barametric pressure. I live in Vermont so when the cold air moves in during this time of year I feel it. As a matter of fact it is suppose to drop down in the 30's tonight!!!
Sherrine - I'm so sorry to hear about your husband. And to see how positive you are now - you truly are an amazing person!
Marlee2 - yes I'm positive it is my extra activity that makes these flare ups happen. Even though I'm not depressed I think I'm stressed just buzzing through each day with a million things on my plate to do.
I'm really feeling it today in my neck upper chest area - no fun!
I think weather plays a big part in flares too. summer an winter hit me the hardest. The humidty of the summer, and the cold of the winter gets my back and knees cuz i have arthitis as well, So those are my rough months.
Welcome to the forum, there are a lotgrat people here Im sure you can relate with very well.
I'm too new at this as I just got diagnosed this past spring and not sure what the fall and winter will bring. I live in Minnesota and the winters are brutal even on a nonfibro body. Just wanted to welcome you and hope you can get those seasonal flares under control- GamJill
Hi John (or Jev) - I got you!! Although I do like M&M candies I'm a lover of my two daughters Megan & Macie I thought that was a tricky name to use. I'm not picky...brown, red, orange M&M - I'll eat them all!
Marlee - Yes I am getting better at delegating. Like you, I am very much "needed" at school helping out at this and that. In fact the call I got today was "next Saturday is the soccer tournament at school can the PTO do a food table?" I will never forget about 6 years ago I was doing that very thing setting up a food table at the soccer tournament and that was the very first time I experienced fibro. I remember telling my girlfriend that I didn't feel good, I hurt all over.
GamJill - I'm from the Northeast so I know exactly what you mean about brutal winters!!
Many thanks everyone! I can tell this is the beginning of a great cyber friendship
Hi again M&M! Yes, you DID get me on that! Megan and Macie.....beautiful names dear! And, please pardon my faux pas for not extending a warm welcome to you.....I missed the "New" before the word member! Welcome! Welcome! Welcome!
Gentlest of hugs,
