Hi, Lynny, and welcome! Thank you for taking the time to post this great post. You are so right when you say "the more you let fibro control your life the more it will control your life." You do have to become aware of your surrounding and see what causes you problems. For me it's stress and overdoing that usually causes my flares. Also, extreme temperatures, whether hot or cold, and high humidity really affect my fibro. But, as you said, you know the pain will lessen once the flare clears up.
I hope you will visit us often. I'm glad you found us and joined our family. I hope to hear more from you soon.
