How on earth do you look after your children with this illness? Today for example completely wiped out and I had to let them run riot around me...with me getting up odd occasion to get them a drink or their meals..

Its summer break now in UK and my kids are 3 and 5...what do i do with them everyday?

Husband works...Mum is around to help, but not everyday
Diagnosed with Fibromyalgia in March and now looking for friends to help me in my fibro journey :o)

I let my two do just about anything within reason. I too am couch bound at this point. I have two girls so we do a lot of coloring on the couch. Kids do not need to be entertained constantly by an adult. Letting my girls play, build forts, color in the living room with me seems to be enough for them. They have the occasional fight or breakdown about me not being able to get up. Don't feel guilty. Do what you can do and remind your kids that it could be way worse!
