Hi Anne...I think shopping is one of the most difficult tasks fibromites have to contend with. I live in the snow belt and pushing carts though ice and slush to the car is impossible for me now. Unless my husband goes with me, I shop at this little IGA store that is at the end of my street. Actually, they always have sales and I don't worry about the ten cents I might save at a big chain. Lights bother me too. I wear glasses that get dark when they hit the sunlight(the name of them escapes me...THE FOG!) and clip on sunglasses on top of them when I am outside. Store lights make me dizzy.
Like Patsie said, you are not losing yourself respect...you are just trying to deal with a condition in the best way you can.
