    I WAS DIAGNOSED WITH FIBRO FIFTEEN YEARS AGO. MY LIFE CHANGED DRASTICALLY IN RESPECT TO MY ENERGY LEVEL AND A LOT OF PAIN. SLOWLY I WITHDREW FROM LIFE AND LOST TOUCH WITH MY FRIENDS. I AM TOTALLY ISOLATED FROM PEOPLE BECAUSE EVERY TIME I MAKE NEW FRIENDS THEY DON'T UNDERSTAND WHY I CAN'T BE SPONTANEOUS, HOP IN THE CAR AND GO SOMEPLACE, OR STAY UP LATE WATCHING MOVIES. THEY GIVE UP ON ME AND STOP CALLING ME. I WANT FRIENDS BUT CAN'T KEEP UP A FAST PACE ANYMORE. I HAVE NEVER BEEN A LONER AND I WANT FRIENDS. HOW DO YOU HANDLE GETTING ENOUGH REST AND KEEPING UP WITH OTHERS?

    Even my grown kids are that way. They call and once in a while visit (out of town) but there are so many times I have to cancel.

    My hubby is about my only friend at this point. We have friends that he works with but that's different.

    I sure do know what you mean.

    My social life now consists of my husband and my cat. I used to talk on the phone more, but lately it really drains me for some reason.
