Dear friends, Some of this is FM related.... of course that shadows everything in our lives. I've been sick for a few years now, I swear living with the stress of my Bi-polar / substance abusing husband drove me over the brink. He's been out of the house for one year now since I had no choice but to "intervene". I have a court order that's good until June of 06 to keep him away. I can't tell you how difficult I'ts been to be the sole provider, paying all the bills, being a single parent of a 12 year old., working full-time at a highly stressful job. And now I think my husband and his father are going to try to put me and our daughter out on the street. ( These people are wealthy and money has always come first ) Work has gotten impossible and I've been in a flare for the last three weeks. My life has been a living nightmare. I know I have blessings like the ability to work ( really NO CHOICE ) is more like it, but I am having trouble even taking. " One day at a time". Thanks for listening... Oh P.S. I have one really un-supportive co-worker and when I went to my FM doc this week he said I should be grateful I've had 40 good years !!
