My husband, bless his heart, is getting frustrated with the randomness of my condition. He doesn't understand how I can go from pouncing on him and tickling him one day to limping around the grocery store and having to use the cart as a walker the next :( I can't say I blame him. He is right that I probably do need to get some exercise ... even if it's only a little walk now and then. I've just been telling him that it frustrates me too.

Hi, how are you? I know how frustrating the unpredictability of fibromyalgia can be. It is so hard when we don't know how we are going to feel from one day to the next.

I agree that walking can make you feel better. Just make sure to start out slow and only go for a little while. Even if you feel like walking more. Gradually your strenght will increase and it will become a daily routine. It is good for a lot of things, the fibro, our minds and our figures. lol...

I hope that you are having a good day today.

Hugs, Karen

i had my husband read a book about fibro when i was dx 5 yrs ago. he really gets it and is absolutely wonderful about it. i think seeing it in writing rather than me just telling him was the key. (no i cant remember which book so dont ask lol)
