I totally agree that sleep is essential for fibromites. If you get a good nights sleep, the good day could turn into good days.
I was really suffering from Crohn's disease when my children were young and I couldn't be far from a bathroom. So, there were many things I wanted to do with my children that I couldn't do. I, too, felt guilty but I was home for them and I was there whenever they needed me. They are all grown now and have assured me that they thought I was the BEST MOM of any of their friends. They could depend on me and they weren't lacking for anything...especially love. Love is the most important thing you can give and do for your children and you sure can love them with fibro!
I am on Social Security Disability due to the death of my husband and not being able to work. I have fibro and I'm legally deaf. But, my husband only paid into the system for 21 years before he died and so the money you receive isn't wonderful. Plus, you would get 1/3 less of it because you would be taking it early. Now that hurts the wallet! I was hoping, when I turned 65, it would go to the normal amount that I would have received if I hadn't taken it early, but I won't. I'll always get the reduced benefit. But, if you really can't find anything that you can handle, the disability is great. Just wanted to let you know in case you didn't know how it works with disability.
I hope you start having many, many good days now and you won't have to think about disability!
