Denial is a wonderful and deadly thing.  Last week I was "officially" diagnosed with Fibro.  Yes, it has been suspected for about 6 mounths to almost a year.  I have those days where I feel achey EVERYWHERE and days where I feel like I am going to fall on my face from being so tired.  Then I have days like today where I feel great and say to myself "self I really don't think that I have this then come up with a thousand different reasons to explain the achyness and tiredness that I have felt.  Then things go back to feeling achy and tired.  So frustrating and this fibro thing is teasing me! nono
I do have a question smilewinkgrin Do any of you experience some type of feeling that you don't feel right right before a flare?  I am so confused yeah !
I do love these faces and so does my daughter!
Thanks and hugs,

I think my daughter feels that (not feeling right before a flare). She was just describing that to me yesterday when she became so disfunctional when the tutor was here. One minute she can produce and then a big crash with lots of pain happened yesterday. She was in tears. Thankfully today is a better day, not great, but better. She was tellilng me she hasn't felt right in her head for days (not depressed -she is very happy and upbeat most of the time.) She handles fibro better than I do. It just kills me when she can't function. Then I stop worrying so much when she functions better and then it kills me to see her not functioning again. This is such a rollercoaster ride!!! My daughter only got diagnosed with this in the beginning of February, so we are still learning how much is too much, etc. We probably won't ever really know!!! :)

Feel better,

I think I still live in denial - SOMETIMES! Then, when I flare there is no denying anything! But, yeah, I get a "feeling", something I can't describe, that sorta, kinda tells me something is on the horizon. Wish I could circumvent that feeling to avoid the flares. Such is life with Fibro!

I don't really have any warning. The pain will just hit - and sometimes I can think back to something I did, and sometimes I have no idea why. Weather? Emotional stress? I can't blame it on hormones anymore!
