I found jliven01's first post buried in a 'foggy' post and wanted everyone to have a chance to meet our newest fibro family member. Glad you have decided to join us j~

hi, I am new here and in the process of being diagnosed. I have this forgetfulness/fog alot and have wondered what the heck it was. I too thought I was just losing it. Sometimes it takes all I have to get through the day, and my speech becomes more jumbled day by day. This is hard for me because I have always been the keeper of the schedule for my family. I completely understand how you are feeling. Hang in there and know your not the only one.

thank you all and I look forward to sharing with and learning from you. Some of the things I am reading are scary because they much more severe than I am currently experiencing. The hardest part is dealing with all and still having to be a mom to my almost 3 year old who doesn't understand that "mommy hurts".

Hi Jliven and welcome. The thing with fibro is you don't feel all the symptoms other people have and there are different degrees of pain. So please don't be scared off from what others feel. For me I don't have much pain below my lower back and if I do it is nothing like some have in their legs and feet.
 
I have a four month old puppy that keeps me going long after I don't think I can so in away I think having someone that depends on us may not always be a bad thing. When I can't take anymore I turn her over to her daddy. I was in my 50s when I got fibro so I don't know what it is like to take care of a small child. At that age they are soooo busy.
 
Read all you can and ask questions and we will be here for you.
 
luv and hugs

Glad to hear from you jliven! I'm sure your mom duties are much harder than is fair. My daughter has a 2 1/2 year old so I can understand a bit what you are going through. She also has fibro and comes on the boards when she can.

One thing...or a couple... to remember is you need to take time for you! It's almost impossible when you have little ones but you do need mommy time, especially with fibro. Take time for a warm, soothing bath/shower. Get those muscles warm and relaxed. It will help a bunch. If you have a s/o then he needs to help out by entertaining the little one, or wait til after bedtime to have your relaxation time. Be careful to portion out things you need to get done. That's a polite way of saying...don't over do it or you'll pay the price! Most of us here are living examples of how NOT to do it...lol It's just so hard not to get busy when your pain is at bay, but then the next day or few are absolutely miserable. Pace yourself.

There are some good threads to head on this topic. It's about something called The Spoon Theory. I'll move it and another couple to the top for you and the other newbies to the forum. Newbies, around here, is an endearing term...not meant in a bad way at all.

Hugs,
Chutzie

Hi Jliven,

I wanted to also welcome you to the forum. As stated above, not everybody has the same pain or to the same degree. So don't be afraid. Many of us lead very productive lives. You just have to learn to adjust and pace yourself. Also do nice things for yourself and have some you time.

Best wishes and I hope that you are feeling well.

Hugs, Karen

hi jliven,

welcome to our foggy fibro family! :-)
love and hugs
~danielle

this being human is a guest house.
every morning a new arrival-a joy, a depression, a meanness,
some momentary awarenewss comes as an unexpected visitor.
welcome and entertain them all!
even if they're a crowd of sorrows, who violently sweep your house
empty of its furniture,
still, treat each guest honorably
he may be clearing you out
for some new delight.
