    I've been on a three-week vacation at my daughter's home in Arkansas. I have two granddaughters, ages 1 and 3, who required attention, but, all in all, I'm very, very relaxed.

    I've been feeling great, fibro-wise for about a week now and am very surprised by it. It's almost like my fibro is in remission: no fibro fatigue, no fibro flares, no fibro fog. I'm almost afraid to go home!

    I had started chiropractic care in January, but the way I feel, I don't think I need it now.

    Has anyone experienced this? I apparently have lots of stress at home that I haven't been aware of. I'm retired and never thought that my retirement would cause me stress.

    Does any of this make sense?

    Sometimes when I go to conventions my fibro seems to be alot less than normal. I am not sure why but i have experinced this too.

    Maybe just the change of scenery is good for this DD.

    Wouldnt it be nice if there was a prescription for a vacation?

    Hi Nancy!

    So glad that you are feeling "good" and able to enjoy your grandbabies! What a wonderful feeling that must be for you.

    There have been several times where I seemed to go into a "remision" from FM/CFIDS - the longest time was about 2 weeks straight! The first time it happened, I must admit I thought I was cured. Then out of the blue it hit like a ton of bricks and I was devastated, to say the least.

    Each time I had/have a "remision", I would again think, "oh goodie! It's GONE!", but then would have to remind myself that it's just playing hide and seek and I have to simply play the game. Now, I try very hard to just take it day by day, enjoy the "good" times while they last and don't set myself up for a fall.

    I have heard that there are some people that have "recovered" from our illness and that gives us hope.

    Enjoy your good times!

    Live, Laugh, Love,
    Rocki
