I am new here but I understand how you are feeling, I myself am still trying to determine how this Fm will work into my life, I to work, and I enjoy my job, but it is very physical. I would talk to your husband, just having the conversation about you concerns with work, might ease some of your worries, you may feel better about it just knowing he understands the road ahead. As far as your mom goes I have my mother in law living with us, she is 77 and still very independant and still helpful, she loves folding laundry:) which is great because my arms get so tired so fast folding, There are days she makes me feel 100yrs old, but I worry what if I can't care for her when she may need me. I feel for now, I need to find my way through this, and do what I can for me, to manage day by day. I am confident that I have had Fm for 10yrs but now it is getting difficult and it has finally caught up to me. Keep your chin up.....if your work is a concern, maybe you are able to work less hours, or find something new to fit your new way of life.... as for mom, I to am a mom, and moms are always there for their children, maybe let her know how you feel. If she can only offer a hug, that maybe just what you needed. Take care I hope this helped, I am new at this....I have been stumbling around reading the posts and learning alot about all this so I am prepared when I see my new Rhuemy in Dec. take care hun:)
