Just sounding out a bit. This is the first year since diagnosed (7 yrs ago) that I remember the winter affecting me this badly (though it doesn't get too cold here in Oz). For the last few years I've had terrible hip, leg, and foot pain off and on throughout the year, but now it seems to affect my shoulders, arms and hands. Thank God I'm not past going though. And lately my husband has been bringing me tea and toast in bed every morning. Sometimes good things do come out of bad things. I just keep reminding myself daily, "... this, too, shall pass." Maybe the Fibro will last a lifetime, but God always seems to know when to bring the good days. For that I am thankful. Hope your good day is just around the corner, everyone.
