I most certainly relate to what you're going through. Big ((((HUG))))). I'm not the most religious person, but the quote that Sherrine posted means alot to me. We found the same saying in a little frame on my Mother In Law's bedside table, she really charished that saying and truly believed in it. After she passed away my husband & I took the little frame and placed it on the shelves in the kitchen, right next to the phone. We are constantly reminded of her and her favorite motto.
Exactly one year ago I was very sick and wound up with pneumonia, though I got over the pneumonia (which took FOREVER) it made my fibro really rear its ugly head. I've been on again off again flares for almost a year now. I left my job because of my health and I've been cooped up in my house all winter. I don't have the friends I used to, because most of them were "work friends" so I get really down and lonely sometimes. Money is a problem too since I'm not working.
I'm so glad I've had this forum and all of the friends I've met here.
I think I'm in the same boat you're in. I try to get out and do stuff but somedays I just don't have it in me. I'm exhausted and sore all of the time. But I think I'm going to have to force myself to get out and do something at least 4 days a week. It doesn't even have to cost money, maybe a walk in the park or keeping an eye on the local paper for upcoming events that are free. Our library has alot of stuff going on that's usually free. Starting projects that I can't finish drives me nuts, so if I do have a project it has to be short term.
Since it seems like everyone is always trying to give us fibromites annoying advice, I won't give you any, but just know, I'm here and I understand. I pop in to the forum a couple of times a day, so I'll be around if you need me
