    went to to Doctor 3yrs ago thought I had the flu...... Felt like I had fever ached all over and my throat hurt. He said I had FM. Every since then I have had one flare after another. Before that though I was diagnosed with IC and now I know alot of people who have both I also have IBS it all seems to go together, Stress is the worst thing and cold weather. I am not the same person I was before all of this came on me, I go to work and come home cant do all I use to do. My husband does most of the house work and when I feel good I over do.... Some days I think I cant live like this anymore and I want to give up. But that is not an option, I often feel if I could afford to stay home I would have better quality of life can anyone answer that. I want to be the wife and mother I use to be, I want to go to church on Wed and Sundays but if I do those things I cant work all week. Its January and I have already missed 2 and a half days and left early yesterday because I could not stand the pain any longer...
