    I have had fibro for about 20 years and it seems to be getting worse....
    My good days seem to be happening less and less.
    Am I letting fibro get the best of me?
    It is hard to get up my noon and then I am done by 2pm.
    I am depressed but I have always tried to look on the bright side.
    I guess that I just "need" to know that all these symtoms are for real.
    I have pain from head to toes. Every day brings on a new pain.
    My family can feel me pull back and they are watching me. I don't like to tell them everything because they want to help and there is nothing they can do.
    My husband does everything for me but I can tell him, he can't take me telling how I hurt....it has to be in small doses. I am on mscotin and vicodin. So I do get help from my meds.
    Am I just letting fibro win?
    Thank you for taking the time to read this......Jan

    I'm just coming out of a really bad and long relapse, most of last year I spent in bed. I've been up 4 days in a row and feeling a lot stronger.

    I have relapses all the time, sometimes for a few weeks and sometimes for much, much longer, like this one.

    I know that I'm going to improve at some point, I just never know when.

    So pace yourself, rest when you need to and for as long as you need to and you will improve. It's not about letting our illness win, we have no choice.

    love
