Hi and welcome to the fibro forum! You have come to the right place. We have members that love to help one another and we really do care about each other, too! Also, we really DO understand what you are talking about.
Be sure to check out the Fibro 101 thread...the second thread on the forum. THere are links to good information about fibromyalgia and you will learn a lot there.
You do need to keep moving and stretching. If you sit or lay too much, you will be stiff as a board. I think you have found that out already. There are some good stretching exercises that you can do while sitting down or at a desk. They are in the Fibro 101 thread. This might help you some at work.
No one quite understands what it feels like to hurt all of the time, unless they have been there and done that. We do have to remember that. You can't see fibro so we look just fine to everyone. I used to try to get people to understand but have pretty much given up now and I just do what I can do. There is a link in Fibro 101 called The Spoon Theory. This might help your husband understand a little better, though, because it sounds like he is trying to understand.
Don't hesitate to ask questions. We are here to help you. I'm glad you are here and I hope to hear more from you soon!
