about 6 years ago mine started. No stress in my life, very happy with my life.
I was setting up a food table for my dd's soccer tournament and I remember looking at my friend saying that I can't keep moving the cases of water, juice, etc because I just hurt all over.
That was the beginning...
Now my "flares" come the same time every year (Sept/Oct) and stay with me until Feb/Mar. This is my busy time with PTO school president, DD's sports, working full time, holiday shopping and baking, etc, etc, etc.
So as others mentioned it hits each of us differently.
I just try to keep a positive attitude and try to take it easy. Funny that after a weekend when I return to work I'm feeling good. By Thursday each week I'm hurting much more. Just tired from the week I guess.
