    This is my first post and I am desperate need of some advice. I am in the middle of the most horrible flare up I've ever had. Could anyone get me some suggestions to help me cope with this? I have a call into my dr. and am waiting for him to get back with me. But, in the mean time any advice is greatly needed!

    Ouch! I'm in so much pain. I think it's a combination of trying to keep up with the job I had started on Jan 31st (and ended 3/25!), and my sister being so ill. May 21st she gets put back together again! I spent a month back in Massachusetts trying to help her.

    Right now, I'm having difficulty finding a job that my old FMS can tolerate. I'm fatigued, achy, painful, IBS is bad. Lots of headaches. Will this ever end?

    I've loved where I'm living, but a doc I worked with did question if I had SAD (not enough sunlight depression). I don't think that's it, but something isn't right. We've been here nine months & hubby still hasn't been able to find a job. I'm having trouble. It's tough.

    God, I could go on & on. dolsgirl
