Oh Sue I'm sending you a great big ((((HUG)))). You haven't had time to even get over your brother and now all this other stuff going on, yes I'd say it's the cause of the flare. You worked so hard on your son's wedding and to watch the marriage fall apart like this. She is carrying your grandchild of course your going to be upset.
I have a hard time myself not letting family problems affect the fibro. I can't turn my emotions off and like you I have anxiety. You know all these things going on is out of your control and that makes it harder cause you feel helpless in making things right. You can be there for your friend when she needs a shoulder to cry on, you can be there for your son when he needs to talk and to hold him, avoid your husband and don't let him take his rage out on you and be as kind as you can to your DIL and pray. That's all you can do is put all this in God's hands and take care of yourself, give your self a break from thinking about any of it. I hope some of this makes sense my brain is foggy again this morning.
luv and hugs
