Hi Kathy and welcome. If you didn't read my welcome to you Pattie, welcome.
Fibro does affect our whole lives and bodies. Stress and emotions has a lot to do with the way we feel. Having a supportive husband is a big plus Kathy. Yeah, we all have those family members that will never get it.
Read the fibro 101 thread, second on first page, if you haven't already there is a lot of great info in it. We have lots of tricks to try and make our lives easier. We love our moist heat in any form we can get it and you can make rice bags out of long tube socks and uncooked rice that can be heated in the microwave to cause moist heat, showers, baths or hot tubs. You do have to keep moving and stretching no matter how you feel or you will feel worse.
Ask questions, read and vent when you need to and we will be here for you.
luv and hugs
