Nice to meet you! You will meet some amazing people on this website with enormous hearts. Sherrine has given you wonderful advice.
One thing I will say is that Fibromyalgia is not a death sentence (a great saying that I am borrowing from another member). It truly effects everyone differently. I still work full time in a professional environment, care for my 2 children, am an active and loving wife, I clean, cook, do yard work, etc. I shoveled snow the other day. Your activity level may be higher or lower than mine. The therapy I use to treat my fibro is to keep moving and stay focused on other things. Yes, I hurt and I'm exhausted. But, my life is not over.
I understand how you and your husband must feel. My husband and I were both petrified when I was diagnosed. I felt guilty when I was diagnosed, like I was ruining our marriage and keeping our dreams from coming true. But, I have stayed determined to fight it with everything I have and I am truly doing fine in spite of my fatigue and pain.
If you ever need talk, please feel free to post again.
Take care and happy holidays,
