**** BIG STANDING O FOR DANIELLE!!! ****** WOW, Girl you said everything that I wanted to say!!! Great job!!!!
Jennifer, I'm still coming to terms with this royal pain in the bod. We'll work together on coming to terms .. Keep posting!!! We're all here to support each other.
You'll have good days and bad days. I've been having lots of good days the past week or two... until this morning. NOT A GOOD DAY for Patti Pooh. And of all days, a day I wanted to somehow make special for my wonderfully understanding hubby. I know I'll over do it and pay for it tomorrow. But that's just the way it is.
Just take care and we're here for you,

Hope your little one is doing better and that you are too. I felt like you a few years back. I kept trying to think of other things or excuses for all of my pain. I had gone so long hurting and getting no help from doctors that I sometimes thought that it might all be in my head.
Finally accepting that you have Fibro and learning how to cope is kind of like a new beginning. You will find that there are things you just can't do anymore without making your pain worse and you will also find that you can still do alot of other things fine.
A positive attitude does help though. If you get down and worry about things you will feel worse. I've found that if I make myself get up and just try to move around a bit it helps. Sometimes I will get a flare so bad that I cannot get out of bed, but I'm beginning to cope with Fibro better now.
I've learned so much on this board. You will too as you go along. I've found that the stretching exercises in the Fibro 101 thread (2nd from top) have helped me with my pain level.
I can't imagine having little ones to take care of while I'm going thru this. Just watching my grandchildren for a little while about does me in! I hope things get better for you and that you are able to take it easy once in awhile.
Never regret something that made you smile!
