    I do not have any answers but I do have a big Welcome. I am sorry but I did not look at your profile.

    Do you have CFS/ME or FM?

    I apologize but it it getting late and I am tired and my brain is not wanting to work.

    Welcome to the Board and try to take care of you.

    Sorry you are so tired and ill. I know how you feel. I am also a Mom of three. I am very involved in my chidren's school and activities. It is just this last year that I feel like I am losing control when it comes to keeping up with everything. I still volunteer in their class, but it seems that I forget things that are due and I just always feel so behind. It is hard for me to focus on one thing and get it done because I always feel so overwhelmed.

    But, I am sure that you are also trying to do your very best. Sometimes I am hard on myself also, but it is the illness. That's what life dealt me and I just try to stay positive. Sometimes I think, if I could just keep moving and get things done, it will get better. Unfortunately, our bodies won't always let us finish what we start. I pray for some kind of remission someday soon, and I hope that for you also. I saw in your profile how important your family is to you and I am sure they know that. My kids are my world and I am going to just keep going and do the very best that I am able to do for them. Have a great night and feel better soon! Kim :)

    Hi Sheri

    I have a lot of problems with nausea but in my case it is a sign that I have really been overdoing and my pain levels are high.

    I know it is nearly impossible for time to yourself when you have little ones. Mine are in college now. I just wanted to let you know that you aren't the only one.

    Please don't be too hard on yourself. Having fibro is hard enough without being a mom of small children too. Honestly there were times I wondered if I would get through.

    I thought there was something wrong with me as a mother because nobody else seemed to be struggling like I was.

    The difference was no one knew about this condition then and the doctors told me it was all in my head. I didn't get diagnosed until I was 45.

    I hope you will keep coming to this board and posting. There are wonderful people here who are great support.

    hugs Redwillow
