Hi Patsie. Since I got fibro during or after a long very stressful time in my life and after horrible anxiety maybe it is secondary for me. I was a perfectionist and even got on my own nerves with it, still do sometimes. I was always there for everyone and thought I had to solve everyone's problems. My DH told me before I got fibro that I had to stop taking on everyone's problems, maybe I should have listened.
I do wonder if my mother may have had fibro, guess that I will never know. Can't say my mother had my personality. I think we are predisposed to get it, not everyone with type A personalities get fibro.
luv and hugs
