Hello all. I am Valarie, a 36 year old mother to three. Trinity is age 6, Aliyah is age 4, and Josiah is age 2. I was diagnosed with fibro back in November. I took a terrible fall last April while mowing my yard, and I believe this is when it began. I am seeing a holistic doctor at the time for my symptoms. She ran an ANA titer on me, which came back at 140, which is just the cut-off for being positive. She told me to totally cut all dairy out of my diet, and I have been doing so for a month. Has anyone else been told this? I can't really tell much of a difference since I've been doing it. I'm glad I found a board where the participants understand what I'm talking about and how I feel. Lately, I have been feeling horrible about myself because I just feel like I'm lazy. I keep thinking that if I push myself to get up and do things will get better but they don't. They just seem to get worse. Tuesday, I did alot. I pushed myself as hard as I could possibly push, and in three hours managed to mow my yard. I cleaned the house that afternoon and starting Thursday I have been paying for it ever since. Thanks for being here.
