I was diagnosed with CF/Chronic Epstein Barr/Fibro 3 years ago. Earlier this year I had a horrible flare that lasted almost 5 months! I was ready to throw in the towel. Since June I have good days and bad days. Is it normal to panic when a bad day comes around? I get myself all worked up preparing for a bad flare again and feel myself sinking back into depression. Also, does the weather affect your symptoms? On rainy days I can feel my body tensing up and begin aching. I am addicted to this site and would not know what to do w/o these message boards. It is so helpful to know you are not alone.
