We all want our pre fibro lives back. After holding my great grandson yesterday my hands, arms and shoulders hurt so bad today, he is about 14lbs already and I know as he gets bigger it is going to be harder for me to hold him. There are two ways I can look at this, I can resent my life with fibro or I can be thankful I'm here to watch him grow and be able to see his beautiful smile and hear him trying to talk already, I choose the later.
I know it's hard Sassy and I'm sure it is even harder when your young to have this, I didn't get it til around 50. I think it has been about 6 yrs since I was dxd and believe me it took a lot of time to accept it. I still get frustrated that I don't have the energy to do enough in a day or having my family here for a day wipes me out. But the one thing we do have control over is the way we think and everyday we can choose to be happy with fibro or we can choose to be angry with fibro, either way we are still going to have fibro at the end of the day.
Your baby isn't going to spend his life in therapy cause you set him in front of the TV with educational movies while you rest during the day. He is a boy with a daddy so let daddy do the outside park things and mommy do the quiet less energetic things.
luv and hugs
