Welcome Stang and Jennings. It's great that both of you are teachers. Stang my dx five years ago took me by surprise too. I didn't know anything about fibro at the time. I knew something was wrong but never thought it was something that couldn't be cured with a few pills.
Read the fibro 101 thread, second on first page, it contains lots of great info. Ask questions and we are here to help you learn to live with this DD. Jennings your right on track with finding ways to do things that saves your energy. Fibromites can get creative when it comes to living with this.
luv and hugs
