Hi Amber Jo and welcome to the family. I felt like I was in a flare all summer, we had a very wet and weird summer here. I was feeling pretty good when it was cold but then Fri the temp got into the 50s, Sat the mid 60s, Sun. in the 30s, yesterday in the 60s and in the 60s today with storms tonight. I live in central Illinois and this is very high temps for this time of year and I have been hurting a lot more even though I have enjoyed the weather and getting outside. There is snow in the forecast for Sat which is just crazy. Weather changes like this plays havoc with our fibro bodies and I'm sure the closer these storms gets to us tonight the worse I'm going to be hurting. So you might want to pay attention to the weather and seasons that you have more pain and don't feel good.
Stress also has an affect on our bodies so I do a lot of self analyzing to see what is causing me stress when I'm feeling worse.
There really isn't any rhyme not reason sometimes to why we feel so bad so we have to adjust our lives to how we feel. Don't feel guilty for having fibro, none of us asked for this DD. Educate your husband and son on fibro not that they are ever going to really get it cause you can't unless you have it but they may be more understanding about the way you feel.
I have not felt normal for many years, fibro is always there to some degree so don't expect to feel like you did before fibro or you will disappoint yourself everyday. We learn to work with it to live as normal as we can now.
The fibrofog gets to all of us but we learn to live with it too and even laugh about some of the crazy things our minds do to us.
The hair loss I would get help for. My hair is thinner than it use to be but I don't have any bald patches.
luv and hugs
