Hi IL Hubby and Welcome-
When the fibro hit me it hit hard and with it came severe depression, fatigue and pain like I had never felt before! I thought my life was over. To walk 15 feet was like walking 5 miles. I could not do anything. I couldn't even wash a pan! With time, support from family, friends, and this group, a good Dr., and medication, I have my life back.
I understand how staying home and not being able to do much is driving her crazy- I am a single mom who was working a fulltime job going at Mach 5 all the time. Then not being able to do anything was quite an adjustment. The group here would offer many suggestions on what to do when they knew I could not do much. It really helped.
I think it is great that you are trying to do whatever you can to help and educate yourself about this- she's blessed to have you.
