Although I've had fibro for 10-15 years, I've been very fortunate to have had lighter symptoms than many others. I have the world's best husband and a wonderful working environment with dear friends. However, I've recently become aware that I am using vicious tones of voice with customers and all of the above. (Yes, I've experienced additional stress as all of us have from the economic condition. I'm dropping all those balls I've been juggling for so many years.) When I first became aware I had fibro I was so very relieved to know that my mother's symptoms, that everyone had thought were mental problems and change of life, were in reality, Fibro. My mother, a normally sweet person would stay in her room to avoid being so short tempered with all of us and so verbally "snappy". Is that truly one of the symptoms that go along with Fibro, or do I need to pursue other possiblities? I cannot bear to be causing everyone so much pain. I'm so fortunate to have friends that can talk with me when I'm calm and keep trying to get thru to me. Anyone that can give me insight would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.
