Thank you both for your encouraging messages. I really appreciate you guys. I'm having such a hard time understanding why, for so many years my fibro was a non-issue. All I had were the tender points. Nothing else. Nothing! Then I had a medical crisis the summer of '07, and I've never been the same since. My Fibro woke up and became a terror. Overnight. From nothing, to something hideous. I'm really having a horrible time adjusting to this. My lupus is so quiet. Thank the good Lord for that.
I will take each day as a step forward and realize that I am succeeding every day. Every day that I can get up, get showered, dressed, make up on, and out the door is a triumph. I'll do my best to keep that positive attitude.
Thank you so much.
I know it's disappointing to have your outing cut short by fibro. Just do the best you can for that day- I too have gone shopping and had to stop because my feet start to go numb and my legs start feeling like lead and the fatigue sets in. I just listen to my body every day and when it's done, I tell myself, well thats enough for today! We are so used to being able to do everything and have no limitations- I was a little tornado and could do it all. It has been quite an adjustment, hasn't it?
